We Grow Microgreens, LLC is a Hyde Park, Boston, Massachusetts based urban farm that specializes in growing highly nutritious microgreens and edible flowers 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 plant counterparts, microgreens provide approximately five times more vitamins and carotenoids. Unlike sprouts, microgreens are grown in soil and only the stem and the leaves are eaten (not the root, as is done with sprouts). Similar to sprouts, they are valued for their high nutritional value. Microgreens can provide strong flavors, bright colors and interesting textures as garnishes for salads or entrees.
The new 4,600-square-foot greenhouse was designed and built with sustainable practices and allows produce to grow with predominantly natural sunlight and collected rainwater. Lisa experienced the benefits of eating a diet of primarily microgreens at the Hippocrates Health Institute and became fascinated with the curative properties of the tender greens. Tim is an urban gardener who has won local awards for various produce and gardens. We use potting soil as a growing medium and try to find organically-sourced seeds. After harvest, we compost our soil, reducing waste.
A huge thank you for your patience and support us as we have grown.

The farm began in our backyard...
Five and a half years later, the Farm was conveyed a piece of land by the City of Boston.
This land is now home to our 4,600-square-foot Gakon greenhouse.
