MicroThumbs Microgreen Farming Initiative

We are very excited to introduce our new school programs, geared towards teaching kids about urban farming and sustainability while generating an extra income for your school.

Our urban microgreens school farm is a great opportunity for your school to be at the forefront of emerging farming in urban spaces. We guarantee to buy all of your crops, so the school can focus on the growing part, which we will teach the individuals taking care of the crops. Your school will earn an extra income and you will be teaching your students valuable skills such as business, farming, sustainability, and food security.

If your school does not have an agriculture program, do not worry, the urban microgreens school farm can still generate an income for the school and look amazing at any school open day.
