Most of us have heard of the term “microgreen,” but that may be the extent of our knowledge on this trending super food. Microgreens are young seedlings of edible veggies and herbs and can be harvested really quickly (between 7-10 days). The best part is that they pack a HUGE punch of vitamins - up to 40% more nutritious than their adult counterparts. Taproot Farms is right down the road in Tinley Park and they love spreading the benefits of these tiny enthusiasts. They’ll show you how to plant microgreen seeds to care for at home. Plus, you’ll get to sample mature microgreens on snacks and experience their flavor. Sign up to get a vitamin punch over winter!
