We Grow Microgreens in Roslindale, MA
Some of what we grow is available year-round.
We Grow Microgreens, LLC founded and operated by urban growers Lisa Evans and Tim Smith, specializes in growing highly nutritious microgreens and edible flowers using sustainable growing practices. As an urban farm, their sunshine grown microgreens can be available to consumers within hours of harvest. As former Boston Public School teachers, the couple is committed to working with local youth and providing job training skills.
Plants like people love natural sunlight. Our microgreens are grown in rich soil with the power of sun and thus are tastier and have more intense flavors. It is the couple’s belief that sunshine grown microgreens are happier plants thus passing that positive energy onto the consumer. Plants that have had to struggle to reach the sun are also hardier and last longer after harvest.
We Grow Microgreens, LLC expanded in March of 2019 to almost an acre of land in Boston conveyed by deed by the City. They successfully changed the mindset of the City on how land could be used. They demonstrated that having a commercial urban farm would be a valuable and viable use of land. The Massachusetts Department of Agriculture, the United States Department of Agriculture and the City of Boston all supported the construction of the farm through grants. The couple built an aesthetically beautiful, water conserving and energy efficient glass greenhouse that melds into the fabric of a residential neighborhood. The high-quality glass greenhouse enables neighbors to be able to see the lovely microgreens and flowers during the year. The greenhouse has translucent solar panels on part of the roof so that the business can have a greater capacity of sustainable growing practices resulting in increased yield and conservation of resources. The couple is committed to the local food movement and is dedicated to being a vibrant part of the Boston Community.
