Description

The Microgreen Adventure Kit

The value of gardening with children is well known- but year-round outdoor gardening is impossible for most. Microgreens are the answer. With our indoor micro-garden STEM kits, not only are children developing responsibility, understanding and self-confidence, they are actively experiencing hands-on STEM-based learning based on science standards!

Grown in tiny greenspaces indoors, microgreens are an incredible vehicle to teach science, math, nutrition, art, service, and so much more in a fun, exciting way. Perfect for children, the micro veggies are harvested in less than 2 weeks- and there are changes to see each and every day through the process.

The Microgreen Adventure Kit will be available soon.

Our Kickstarter campaign launches the end of August , and this kit will go from concept to available throughout the United States.

The Story Behind the Business

I began growing microgreens for family use many years ago while teaching science and other subjects in a local elementary school.

Realizing the potential to teach life lessons through microgreens, I began teaching adults, youth, and children to grow microgreens with my specially developed kits. I have researched, revised, and trialed each part of the kits as I worked with a curriculum developer to add additional STEM learning experiences to go with the monthly lessons. The time came to quit my ‘day job’ to concentrate on developing this business into one that concentrates on teaching families how to include microgreens as part of their quest for life-long learning and good nutrition. Bootstrapping the journey with personal investment funds, savings, gifts, 70 hour weeks, growing and selling microgreens locally, and the advice and support from the SBDC and IWBC, I have gathered a diverse team of specialists to help me develop this unique and science-backed microgreen subscription learning box.

Sourcing American-made products and local services whenever possible will be important to procure materials to keep on hand to prevent delivery disruptions. With funding from our Kickstarter campaign, we will be able to build molds and have many parts of our kits made locally- helping other small businesses while being simultaneously better for the environment.

With your support on KICKSTARTER, we will continue building new subscription packets. Our goal is to have 12 months of learning activities completed during the first 6 months. We are also developing online lessons for both individuals and schools that will include live Zoom classes across the nation.
