Currently located in Preston, in a pocket of car space at the Fair Food warehouse, the Microgreens team farm out of a shipping container growing pea and wasabi microgreens.
These microgreens are densely grown seedlings that are harvested young for their highly concentrated nutrients. They are slightly more mature than sprouts, have an intense aromatic flavour and can be grown in small spaces not suitable for other crops.
CERES Microgreens has been operating for 8 years out of this small space being an excellent example of small-scale urban farming. 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.
Where to buy
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.
