Home Microgreens Mission

The mission of Home Microgreens is to build and help an engaged and active community of 10,000 people successfully grow microgreens at home.

We will support the community by publishing educational articles, online courses, and reference materials, hosting in-person classes, and providing reasonably priced supplies and microgreen seeds.

Why We Grow Microgreens

Even before the current worldwide crisis, we believed in growing nutritious and flavorful food at home. It’s a fact that produce loses a significant percentage of its vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidant properties, and flavor every day after harvest.

Growing and harvesting nutrient-dense food even makes more sense now, not only because of the nutritional value but due to the importance of everyone becoming more self-sustaining.

Growing Microgreens is Easy

Home Microgreens publishes articles explaining every aspect of growing microgreens. We make it easy by testing products, seeding densities, and growing methods for dozens of microgreen varieties. Articles perfect for beginning growers are presented below.

We also have a free guide that explains the processes.


To start, you only need two containers, one with holes in the bottom and the other to hold water. A good potting mix, seeds, water, artificial light, or a place with 6 hours of sun.


Most microgreens require a few days of darkness, then a few more in light. Add a little water, and between 7- and 14 days, your microgreens will be ready to eat.


To harvest, tilt the tray over a plate and use scissors or a sharp knife to cut the microgreens just above the soil.
