Join Jess, CERES’ microgreens manager for a tour of the farm and an introduction to growing microgreens. Jess will walk you through the production process from start to finish, answer your questions, and share what she’s learnt about managing an urban farming business.
Microgreens are densely grown seedlings that are harvested young for their highly concentrated nutrients. They are slightly more mature than sprouts, have an intense aromatic flavour and can be grown in small spaces not suitable for other crops.
What you will learn:
- How CERES produces certified organic microgreens for wholesale in Preston.
- How to grow pea shoots, radish, and sunflower sprouts at home.
- How to plan for a continuous supply of these (enough for all your salad needs)
When: Sunday 2 April 2023, 10am-12pm
Where: CERES Fair Food at 20 Water Road, Preston
