Bring a Farmwall to your School Canteen
Promote veggies and nutrition at school
What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are edible vegetable greens picked in an early stage of their growth for a tasty and highly nutritious source of food. Research shows that microgreens have incredibly high levels of nutrition. In some cases, they contain up to five times as many phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals by concentration than the mature versions of the same plant! They are the perfect, healthy garnish, to increase nutritional intake at school and promote healthy eating.
