Home Microgreens Production

Your Free Home Microgreens Production Resource!

The Free Home Microgreens Production Course is meant for those of you who grow at home for personal consumption and don't need to bother with all the business aspects of production.

Many of the segments are filmed live so you can see some of the challenges in real time.

Home production is great for personal well being but also helps prepare you for commercial production - getting you familiar with crops and the production flow.

The course Includes a live link to my own home production stats including set up costs and equipment list for a full home system.

Also, I regularly add live-streamed videos to the course but you can also catch them live on my YouTube Microgreens Channel: www.youtube.com/garlicpatch

Chris Thoreau
Chris Thoreau

Chris Thoreau holds a BSc. (Hons.) in Agroecology from the University of British Columbia (UBC) where his focus was on soils, urban farming, and plant breeding. Currently working on expanding the viability of urban farming in Vancouver, he has worked on uniting these areas of study to help increase the sustainability of urban food production.

Chris is a founding owner-member at Vancouver Food Pedalers Cooperative, an urban farming business focused on growing sunflower shoots and other soil-grown microgreens for local markets, restaurants, and growers. Now in its 10th year, the business is a profitable and respected contributor to the local food chain. The Food Pedalers distribute all their food by bicycle. Chris left the Food Pedalers in 2017 to work on other projects but still checks in regularly!

Chris has focused on a number of key areas which have contributed his success as an urban farmer:

  • Systems: Chris takes a very systematic approach to his microgreens production system. Every step of the production process is broken down into a very specific system which makes the production process simple, efficient, and easy for training.
  • Attention to Detail: No detail is too small or insignificant to be overlooked in a production system with a seven to ten-day growing cycle. Even half-day of error can make the difference between a perfect and an unharvestable crop. Attention to detail is also required to maintain the integrity of your product from seed to sale. This includes meticulous hygiene, harvesting, packing, and distribution processes.
  • Execute, Follow Through, and Follow Up: Planning is one thing and execution is another. Planning without execution is the path to failure in an agricultural operation. Planning is a means to an end – not an end in itself. It must lead to action. And those actions must be executed fully and followed up on to ensure they are producing the desired results. Once gaps are identified they must be corrected promptly.
