Creating healthy thriving communities through nutrient rich locally grown foods.
Both obesity and over acidity have become enormous health issues for
humanity due to processed foods and poor quality of the produce available
in local supermarkets. The majority of produce available to us is grown
with Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) seeds in Mexico, before being processed
and delivered throughout America for sale. Most produce loses 30% or more
of its nutrient value in the first 3 days after harvest. Organic produce
is grown from seeds with a natural lineage but faces the same problems with
degradation of nutrients in the time it takes to deliver. Another concern
is the irradiation of our produce. The USDA & FDA claims that this process
is completely safe for consumption, but the average dose used is up to 166
times the lethal dose for humans. Even the Bacteria that normally cause
food to decompose refuse to eat it, a stunning fact.

they need to grow are there. If they are harvested at the right time, they

Red Acre Cabbage microgreens grow petite red and violet stems with variegated shades of green leaves. A very popular seed to add to microgreen mixes. Pairs well with other brassicas and radish. Makes a fantastic garnish!
study by the American Chemical Society implies that red cabbage may help reduce "bad" cholesterol.
Purple Radish is a solid, reliable and delicious microgreen. Cotyledons are mostly deep purple with occasional green, which make a beautiful highlight. The rosy stems and bright flavor add both a tasty flair and a great look as a garnish or in a salad.
