Microgreens are young vegetable greens that are harvested just after sprouting and before they develop into full-grown plants. These tiny greens are packed with a concentrated amount of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making them incredibly nutritious. They are a convenient and flavourful way to add a powerful nutritional punch to your diet that can be grown year round.
Join us to learn more about microgreens. Local sprout farmer, Bertram Winchester, will discuss the best practices for growing and caring for microgreens, as well as share some delicious recipes that incorporate sprouts. He will have some samples to try, and we will be giving away a beautiful PEAce Bowl as a door prize to one lucky attendee.
About the speaker: For the past 5 years, Bertram Winchester and his wife Tiffany, have been running RAD Farm in Comox. Their farm began as a humble acreage, but with dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, they have transformed it into a thriving microgreens haven. These tiny, nutrient-packed powerhouses have stolen Bertram’s heart, and he can’t help being overly enthusiastic about their incredible benefits.

February 6th 2020 meeting will feature Fiona McQuillan

Fiona and her husband Jens started Fireweed Farmstead 3 and a half years ago after moving to Merville from Maple Ridge. Like many new farmers, their path to farming has not been a straight line! Fiona is a geologist and graphic designer, Jens a mechanic and engineer. The factors that brought them to farming was a desire to grow good food, Fiona having a green thumb, both of them wanting to work for themselves in a business both of their backgrounds could contribute too, and raising kids in a farm setting. The farm they have developed consists of greenhouses, farmstand, outdoor veg production, chickens and pigs along with wildling children and naughty ducks.
