This week, we sat down with Jake Williams and Brigid Reina of Superior Greens, a microgreens company in Ashland, Wisconsin. Microgreens contain up to 40-times the nutritional value of their mature counterparts which makes for concentrated deliciousness. They can be spicy or they can be sweet and buttery, and every flavor in between. On eggs or on cupcakes, microgreens are a healthy and decadent food source. Jake and Brigid shared a recipe for a microgreen dish, check it out below.
We talk with UMD Professor Randy Hanson about UMD's Sustainable Agriculture Project (SAP), a fifteen-acre "land lab" that utilizes sustainable farming practices.
