Episode 3: Microgreens and Soil Health
Restoring Ourselves, Our Soil, and Sprouting Microgreens scratches the surface of soil, the heart of our continuing food journey through the year. Winter’s hush across the landscape inspires restorative immune support practices boosted by the amazing benefits of microgreens, holders of sunshine and deep nutrition. Follow along using our demos on composting food waste with earthworms, sprouting and making microgreen confetti recipes, and microgreen yoga.
Our accompanying wellness curriculum for ages 4-7, 8-12, teen to adult, pre-natal, and elders includes “Soil Hero” instructions for worm farms, microgreen kits for the Food Shelf, and desktop composting in repurposed soda bottles. Older Soil Heroes are encouraged to dig deeper into the soil microbiome, soil-less growing, and examine fashion industry practices that exploit rather than restore soil, water, and human resources.
