Microgreens offer so much nutrition because they are picked at the stage of the plant’s life cycle when they have the most nutrients, it’s that simple. You can get from 4 to 4o times more nutrients in microgreens vs. full grown veggies. And because of the way they are grown & picked, the varieties are endless.
If you haven’t heard of TERI, they are the Training and Educational Resource headquartered in Oceanside, specifically for those with developmental disabilities. TERI is all about enriching the lives of their clients, and changing the way the world views those that are touched by special needs. They do this in several innovative ways, including the Campus of Life in San Marcos (a one of a kind model of sustainability and community outreach), and their farm in Vista. The clients get to work at the farm, boosting quality of life and purpose. The organic food grown goes to TERI clients, homes & families (they have CSA boxes just for TERI clients), and is also a source of providing funds for programs. The microgreens are grown to sell to local restaurants and businesses.
