We all know it can be hard to get fresh, nutritious, local greens in the wintertime, so why not start growing your own sprouts at home? All you need are some seeds to sprout, a glass jar, mesh lid, water, and some simple instructions. In as little as 3 days you can have sprouts to eat! Vegetable sprouts are rich in vitamins that help your immune system fight through those common springtime colds, plus they taste great. Sprouts are delicious added to salads, sandwiches, and stir fries.

Participants will receive instructions, seeds, and mesh lid prior to class to be able to follow along and grow their own sprouts. All you will need is a glass mason jar and clean water. Our food and nutrition educators will walk you through starting your sprouts, discuss the nutritional benefits of different kinds of spouts, answer your questions, and share ways to enjoy eating your sprouts.

After this workshop you should know:

  • How to grow sprouts safely in your home
  • Nutritional and medicinal properties of different sprouts
  • How to harvest your sprouts
  • Different delicious recipes that incorporate your homegrown sprouts

Please contact the CCE Seneca office at 315-539- 9251 if you have any special needs.

Fee

$10 per person. Participants will receive instructions, seeds, and mesh lid prior to class to be able to follow along and grow their own sprouts.
