Kids can grow microgreens!

To grow microgreens can be a valuable indoor gardening lesson for homes or classrooms.

An atmosphere of love and respect for plants and animals in the home and classroom is the best foundation for a lifetime of comfort with, and interest in, nature. This begins in the home as the child absorbs the family’s attitude toward gardens, houseplants, weeds, wild birds, and pets.

Lessons that make a deep impression come from first hand experiences of plants and animals; nothing can substitute for seeing, and smelling flowers in the home, and watching the daily growth of a flower or vegetable in the garden or filling a bird feeder with a parent and watching which birds come to feed.

This is the time to introduce gardening to children and growing microgreens is the absolute best way to do so!!

With that in mind, New Life Greens has put together a Starter Grow Kit and Refill Grow Kit for children. To make it more attractive to the little ones, different microgreen characters of magical,ย tiny leaves will captivate their minds and inspire them to grow each little green.ย  Our Microgreen Power Pouches is also great to kick-start.

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn. " My core belief is that involving children in healthy habits like growing their own microgreens, is key to inspiring an appreciation for clean eating and healthy living. Children LOVE to eat what they've grown themselves ๐Ÿ’š

Microgreens will capture the imagination of your child as sleeping seeds turn into abundant green life! Growing the Micro Shooters will create awareness of sustainability, provide food, and encourage healthy eating. They are super tasty – so even the pickiest little eaters will be surprised.

Microgreens are by far the easiest way to get kids to eat their veggies, and they will also learn to be creative with their food. Gardening at home should be encouraged to develop things like planning, work ethic, problem-solving, responsibility, and using their fingers.

Let them learn the process, take control of growing their own superfood, make them part of choosing recipes, let them create recipes and food ideas and in this way give them ownership in their meals.

What is the benefits of children growing microgreens?
  • can be grown in theย smallest of homes and classroomsย – they don’t take up much space and can be moved around.ย 
  • can beย grown all year round – regardless of the season.ย 
  • areย relatively cleanย – as they only need a small amount of soil, the children don’t have to dig deep to plant the seeds and although the children may make a mess, it can generally be contained.
  • areย nutritious and edibleย – can go into a salad, on sandwiches, on top of crackers and dip, or top other dishes like pasta.
  • children canย observe the full plant lifecycle up closeย – as they are grown inside the children can easily observe the plant growth every day. The children can be involved from start (planting the seeds) to finish (eating the Microgreens). Older children can measure their growth and record the growth through drawings or photographs.ย 
  • theyย grow quicklyย – ย we see the plant begin to emerge in days and it usually takes 2 to 4 weeks to grow before harvesting.ย 
  • areย easy to harvestย – the children can harvest the microgreens themselves with a small pair of scissors. Often there is enough for all children to have a turn at harvesting.ย 
  • they areย easy for young children to plantย – unlike spacing seeds and planting rows in a traditional garden, Microgreens are planted in a layer sprinkled across the top of the soil, perfect for young children who may be overenthusiastic with their planting.ย 
  • suitable for children withย varying ranges of mobilityย – children don’t need access to a garden or the outdoors. Planting and caring for Microgreens is suitable for children inside and working at a table.ย 
  • easy to care forย – they require watering and we need to expose them to indirect sunlight but there are generally easy to care for.
  • help toย develop fine motor skillsย – children can use their fine motor skills to plant the seeds and develop hand strength when using a mister or spray bottle to water the Microgreens, and to use scissors for harvesting.ย 
  • New Life Greens did all the hard work of putting the perfect grow kits together, so that you can only enjoy the fun part –ย  to get GROWING!
It is this easy!
