The CERES Microgreens team harvest pea and wasabi microgreens, which are densely grown seedlings that are harvested young for their highly concentrated nutrients.

The CERES Microgreens are slightly more mature than sprouts, have an intense aromatic flavour and can be grown in small spaces not suitable for other crops.

Our Microgreens had been farming for 8 years out of a shipping container outside the Fair Food warehouse. In 2022 we fundraised from 580 people in the community as part of our Urban Farm Renewal to bring Microgreens to Brunswick East to join the rest of the farm family. We cut the ribbon on the new farm in July 2023, and now there is plenty of room to grow.


Where to buy

We sell our certified-organic Microgreens through CERES Fair Food and the CERES Grocery & Bakery as well as other retailers around Melbourne.


We run a workshop through the School of Nature and Climate, called Introduction to Growing Microgreens. It includes a tour of the farm and details the production process of growing microgreens at home and in a commercial setting. 


We host individual volunteers within our Microgreens farm. Come and learn about the wonderful world of vertical farming on site at Brunswick East. Be on the lookout for opportunities on our Volunteer at CERES page.


After we harvest, the leftover soil with peas and roots cannot be reused for growing Microgreens but makes a great compostable soil product. Most is composted on site for the CERES park, but there is always plenty more. We are always looking for people to come and re-use our compostable soil for their home gardens or farms. Please get in touch if you are interested at greens@ceres.org.au
