Welcome to the Micro green Toolkit. This is a how-to guide for growing microgreens on a shoestring, for health-conscious growers and budding entrepreneurs. I’ll pass on the lessons I’ve learned from years of growing and selling microgreens from my urban farm in England – so you can get started on a low budget and avoid making rookie mistakes.
Unlock your potential by growing an abundance of nutritious and profitable produce. Whether you’re in a city basement or out in the countryside, I’ll show you vertical-farming techniques to get the most from your growing space.
In this crash-course you’ll learn about:
· Basic equipment – for indoor and outdoor production
· Growing methods – using both soil and hydroponics
· Adapting to your local climate and situation
· Marketing and selling your produce
This step-by-step tutorial will empower you to get growing, no matter what your budget or where you live. So come and join the international microgreen revolution!

People with an interest in growing superfoods - with little to no experience of urban farming (not for experienced growers - although you might find some nuggets of wisdom here!)
Anyone looking to start a new business in a growing market.
People looking for a health kick!

I found this course very informative and its definitely going to help me starting my first micro-greens home based project.
Based on the outcomes I will look for selling to the nearest shops or restaurants.
