Growing Microgreens for Profit

Urban Farmer Curtis Stone talks about his three most profitable microgreens. Curtis has other videos on his microgreen operation in Canada, his soil mix, greenhouse construction, etc.

The second video demonstrates growing microgreens outdoors under mesh in tropical climates. The mesh keeps insects out, blocks the hot sun but still lets sufficient light and ventilation. It’s in Lao language but you can still see the basic idea. You can find many more microgreen/baby green videos online.

    Here’s another video on growing microgreens in a basement:
