Wanting to provide safe, healthy greens for her family, Angie Mee started growing microgreens in a spare room in her home. Delighted with the results, Angie decided to increase production of these tiny, but mighty “greens” to share with friends and members of the community. Soon, Ebenezer Greens, an indoor vertical farm was born. Located near historic Ebenezer in Rincon, Georgia, Ebenezer Greens produces several varieties of microgreens, including sunflower, kale, mustard, radish, basil, cabbage, broccoli, amaranth, and pea shoots. The microgreens are grown from seed in soil and harvested within 7-14 days, when the first true leaves appear.
Angie harvests the majority of her microgreens fresh at the Forsyth Farmer’s Market in Savannah and the Hilton Head Island Farmer’s Market at Honey Horn.
She hopes her microgreens will inspire more mindful eating. With their many colors and flavors, microgreens not only add beauty to every dish, but are a powerhouse of vitamins and antioxidants. Some varieties of microgreens contain up to 40X more nutrients than their mature counterparts.
You can add microgreens to most every meal: toss them on eggs in the morning, pile them on a sandwich or wrap for lunch, add them to a salad or taco for dinner. The possibilities are endless! Microgreens are a great way to add a boost of nutrition and variety to your diet.
Ebenezer Greens is committed to providing these “superfood” greens to the community!
