Our first workshop focused on the aspects of growing spicy micro greens. Starting with growing them from seeds in clean potting soil, then going over maintenance and watering, and finally when to harvest and how to harvest.
The next informative section covered the market and nutrition for spicy micro greens. How much is it sold for? who can I sell it to? and finally; What is spicy micro greens? what are some ways to prepare them?

and snap peas just to name a few.
Micro greens take an average of 3 weeks until they are ready to be harvested. Spicy Micro greens are often used as a garnish or side in restaurants. Cafeʻs will also use them on top of avocado toast to give it that extra "kick".
