We are proud to offer for sale our first microgreen educational classroom kit. The kit includes 20 plant based plastic reuseable container, broccoli seeds from organic and Non-GMO growers, sustainable coir based media with worm castings, 2 spray heads that fit on plastic water bottles (reuse rather than discard) and a teachers manual that has instructions for implementing the microgreen growing and ideas for integration into existing curricula. In the near future we are setting up an idea exchange for classrooms using out kits. Information exchange and experiments are the goal of creating a network of users.
Here are a few photos from a Head Start program in Hawaii. This program is for 3 and 4 year olds ... take a look at the wonderment in their faces ... they eagerly devoured this first crop of broccoli, can you believe it, broccoli !!!
We have created a website devoted to innovative technologies that are suitable for classrooms. These technologies like aquaponics could unlock the imagination and exploration that may someday translate to the next breakthrough in agriculture. Give the children the opportunity to explore and interact with plants and watch the GROW !!!
The website page that highlights our microgreen kit is full of more photos of this activity ... the website can be found at Urbaform Educational Technologies
