Program Description

About this event:


What are microgreens? Why are they fun? How can I grow them in small spaces? How can I use them and eat them? Microgreens are mini versions of regular vegetables. The shoots are harvested at a young age, before they grow into fully matured plants.

In this workshop the Master Gardeners of Tompkins County will walk you through how to grow these tasty treats from seed in the comfort of your own home this spring and summer. Workshop participants will each receive a microgreen growing set and seeds to start. This workshop is sponsored by Salutations Seed Library.

Registration is required due to the limited number of microgreen kits; a kit may be shared amongst a family or friend group during the event, but only one kit will go home per group. Only one person per group needs to register. Individuals are also welcome on their own.


The Master Gardener Volunteer (MGV) Program is a national program of trained volunteers who work in partnership with their county Cooperative Extension office to expand garden-based educational outreach throughout the community by providing home and community gardeners with research-based information and skills. Master Gardeners assist with gardening projects in the community, teach classes and workshops, plant and maintain demonstration gardens, provide information and soil pH testing at events, and answer gardening questions that come in to the GrowLine, a horticultural hotline.
