You might have heard of the term “farm-to-table” the last time you dined out. A social movement that has continued to grow in popularity worldwide, farm-to-table cuisine isn’t just about tucking into a plate of organic food, it’s also about knowing where your produce comes from and how it is grown.
In turn, the trend has encouraged many people to get their hands dirty—literally—by starting their own indoor farms at home. Microgreens, which are edible young plants commonly used by chefs as garnish in dishes or to enhance their flavours, are a favourite because they're nutritious and easy to manage. They can be harvested shortly after the seeds sprout leaves, so you’ll be able to see the fruits of your harvest in no time.
In addition, microgreens can thrive in small spaces. This means you can recycle old plastic containers for planting pots. Other creative alternatives include mason jars, biscuit tins and even coffee mugs!
Keppel Land has just launched a three-part video series titled ‘The Apartment Gardener’ to show you just how easy it is to grow your own microgreens at home.
