We Grow Microgreens, LLC

Locally and Sustainably Grown in Soil with Sunshine

 

Our Story

We Grow Microgreens, LLC is a Hyde Park, Boston, Massachusetts based urban farm specializing in highly nutritious microgreens, edible flowers, herbs and plants using organic and sustainable growing practices.

Microgreens are tender, edible seedlings of vegetables and herbs grown to the cotyledons (seed leaves) or first true leaf stages. In comparison to their mature counterparts, microgreens provide five times more vitamins and carotenoids. Unlike sprouts, they are grown in soil and only the stem and the leaves are eaten. Microgreens provide strong flavors, bright colors and delicious textures for salads, entrees, or desserts!

 

Our newly constructed 4,600-square-foot glass greenhouse is energy efficient and water conserving featuring translucent Soliculture solar panels. Rainwater is collected off the roof of the greenhouse for watering the plants. Potting soil is used as growing medium, and we try to find organically-sourced seeds. After harvest, we compost our soil thus minimizing waste. Herbs are also grown in raised garden beds on the farm. Sustainability is one of our founding principles. 

We Grow Microgreens owners, Lisa and Tim started this company from a tiny greenhouse in their backyard. Now they operate a 4,600 square foot greenhouse and two high tunnels. Lisa experienced the benefits of eating a diet full of microgreens at the Hippocrates Health Institute and became fascinated with their curative properties. Tim is an urban gardener, who has won local awards for various produce and gardens. 

 

A huge thank you for your patience and for supporting us as we have grown.

Sincerely, 

Founders Lisa Evans and Tim Smith
