Giveaway

Let’s Grow!

Want some cacti? How about some succulents? Maybe a bag of microgreens? Or… other plant stuff?

I want to spread and share nature, but I don’t have the money or space to make a community garden. I’ll use the internet instead! These are not big and fancy giveaways that will require you to restructure your life or balcony. These are little gifts that you don’t have to pay for. Like finding the perfect berry on a walk, or that one lovely leaf you’ll keep for years, these are little bits of plant happiness.

The current giveaway is not affiliated with any company. If you’d like to contribute to the next giveaway, please feel free to send me a message via email or Instagram!

World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought – June 17

If we keep producing and consuming as usual, we will eat into the planet’s capacity to sustain life until there is nothing left but scraps. We all need to make better choices about what we eat and what we wear to help protect and restore the land.

Ibrahim Thiaw, Executive Secretary of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification

Food, Feed, Fibre

If you take supplements, you probably know that they’re not quite as effective as getting the nutrients from real food. And if you grow plants in the interest of a balanced diet, you know how much room and effort that can take. 

Microgreens make this process a little easier. 

Easy to grow, all they take is a jar or a sponge of some sort. Maybe both together! Then, add some water and a week, and you’re looking at a nice grazing ground to trim and toss in a shake or on a salad. Takes a lot less room than a garden, and can be grown in almost any season (indoors). Plus, they take considerably less time than full crops would – you’re not giving them the full time to grow. 

I’ve grown microgreens in a coffee cup, old tupperware, even on a sponge-like thing. 

While they don’t quite provide adequate calories, stacking microgreen pods and growing things vertically can really cut down on your footprint. (And, while only a small amount, trapping some carbon and some indoor poor air can help everyone out a bit too!)
