Gonino Center for Healing Microgreen Grow Kit
This microgreen grow kit is in collaboration with Dr. Gonino and the Gonino Center for Healing, and is designed for anyone who is interested in micros for their health benefits. The seeds included are easy to grow, have mild flavors, and are off the charts in terms of vitamins and nutrition! Incorporate these little plants into your smoothies, salads, or anywhere you can. Micros are easily digested, making their nutrition readily available, and then cut fresh, they also have active enzymes to help with overall gut health. The kit includes everything you need to easily grow microgreens in the comfort of your own home. Microgreens offer nearly instant gratification, as they grow in as little as 7 days from seed to harvest. Always grown indoors, no special lights are required, just indirect bright natural light is adequate for these mini superfood plants. This kit includes (12) "crops" worth of seeds and soil, and extra trays, so you can cycle your greens to always have them on hand and ready to eat!
Note from the Gonino Center for Healing:
Our goal is to empower our patients to embrace true health: utilizing education, and natural modalities to support the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. Combining conventional medicine (to control symptoms) with natural therapies (to heal cellular level) to achieve optimum health.
Microgreens, with their nutrient dense profile, fit perfectly into our education outline for our patients. Research showing broccoli microgreens reducing symptoms of autism only furthers our philosophy that the body heals with nutrients, not drugs.
We love that our patients can grow these super foods in their homes, easily and effectively. Not only does it support their internal healing process, but the act of growing these greens connects our patients to being purposeful and mindful of what they are putting in their body. Our partnership with Urban Hydro Greens provides that resource for healthy living.
Here's what's included in the grow kit:
~ Laminated step-by-step instructions. You'll have an easy to follow guide and reference sheet to help you with your growing. The sheet also includes common terms and troubleshooting. You also have access to our website FAQ page and videos to ensure your success.
~ (4) 10" x 10" propagation trays. They're the perfect size to fit on a counter top or in a window sill. One tray serves as the bottom where your plants will grow, and the other serves as a humidity dome while your plants are germinating. Having more trays on hand allows you to grow crops simultaneously, or in cycles, insuring a constant supply of healthy greens.
~ (12) packs of pre-measured seed, with each pack producing one crop of microgreens. You'll receive some of the healthiest and easiest plants to grow: (3) packs each of broccoli, blue curled kale, purple kohlrabi, and red cabbage. All are mild flavored, and HIGH nutrition. **Contact us prior to purchase if you'd like to substitute any of the included seeds, we can customize your order!
~ (25) coco coir wafers, enough grow medium for all (12) crops worth of seeds. This grow medium is clean, sustainable, and easy to use; ideal and sanitary for indoor growing. Simply place two dry wafers in your grow tray, add water, and you're ready to seed.
~ Hand held spray bottle, for misting the seeds during the germination phase.
~ Simple microgreen nutritional sheet, and a few smoothie recipes to get you started.
