Plantes de la terre - is French for 'Plants from Mother Nature'.  

To show our respect for Mother Nature we produce our microgreens using environmentally  and sustainable growing practices.

  • The containers we use to sell our microgreens are made of corn starch. 

  • We use compostable gloves, not plastic.

  •   The growing medium is composed of coconut coir and earth worm casings, which are produced in our worm farm. 

  • Lastly, we water our microgreens using the  water from our de-humidifiers 

 

What are microgreens?

The word “micro” here says it all. Microgreens are young seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs.

Unlike larger herbs and vegetables that take weeks or months to grow, microgreens can

be harvested and eaten a week to 10 days after the cotyledon — a part of the embryo within

the seed  — leaves have developed.

These tiny versions only grow to a few inches and can come in 50 to 60 different varieties.

Despite their small stature, microgreens actually boast a more intense flavor than larger

vegetables and herbs. One study even found they have more health benefits and can be

up to 40 times more potent in phytochemicals.

The study, from 2012 by the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, analyzed

25 microgreens and, on average, determined microgreens have four to six times more

nutrients than their mature counterparts.
