Microgreens

 

Now on Microgreens MkII – Microveg….

After we went back to Collingwood School to plant our Microgreens on with year 2 we decided it might be a bit too much to achieve with some classes – so we are trying a different method. Using polythene 2l plant pots we are planting the seeds (carrots, peas, beetroot, radish) in a pot large enough to grow them right through to maturity. Follow our progress to see how it goes…. #Food4Ed
