Community Crew is pleased to partner with Gift a Green to launch our new fundraising initiative. A portion from each sale of microgreens will go back to Community Crew to help feed children who have been affected by poverty.
Gift-a-Green is a one-of-a-kind collection encompassing the true DIY spirit of growing your own indoor garden. Each pouch comes with one of eight different varieties of microgreen seeds and a special blend of either loose peat moss composition or dried coconut coir.
Users will be thrilled to plant the seeds and watch their microgreens grow over a two-week period resulting in delicious and nutritious microgreens that can be added to a favourite dish.
The best part of all, no need to transplant – The Pouch is the Pot!
What's Inside: Soil, cress microgreen seeds, instructions on how to grow.
Curly cress, or garden cress is a fast-growing, edible herb that is botanically related to watercress and mustard, sharing their peppery, tangy flavor and aroma. It prefers considerably less water in the sprouting stage than most other microgreens seeds. If the seeds get too wet, you will end up with a very low germination rate. Cress has an interesting shaped leaf that is green in color. The peppery flavor is intense.
Curly cress is an important source of iron, folic acid, calcium, vitamins C, E and A. The seed contains arachidic and linoleic fatty acids.
