Where can I learn about growing microgreens?
We have videos online that show how we grow our microgreens including buckwheat greens, wheatgrass, sunflower greens ("sunnies"), and pea greens. You can click on the image below or visit our YouTube channel directly. These videos are especially great for volunteers who want to help take care of the microgreens.
Do you have trays of wheatgrass available to the community?
Yes, trays of wheatgrass are available at a suggested donation of $10, plus $2 refundable deposit for the plastic tray itself. Please be mindful of taking only the black trays. The green trays (Perma-Nest trays) are meant to stay at Turtle Lake Refuge.
Where did you get the green trays you use?
We order the trays online. They are called Perma-Nest trays.
When can I come and pick-up some microgreens?
You are welcome to come during normal business hours Monday to Friday. Feel free to visit us downtown and pick out what you'd like. It's probably best to call in advance to make sure we have what you want in stock. Our microgreens are also available at places like Durango Natural Foods and Nature's Oasis. For example, we deliver trays of wheatgrass to Nature's Oasis which they use to make shots of wheatgrass for their customers.
When do you do deliveries to local businesses?
We generally deliver Monday and Thursday afternoons. If you're interested in having microgreens delivered, it is best to place a standing order which we can count on delivering once or twice a week, however, we are also available for on-call orders. Please call 970.247.8395 to place an order.
