Micro greens and the beyond-organic-ness of indoor farming

When it comes to eating healthy foods, it’s easy to talk the talk, but when it comes to walking that walk, it can be hard. Work, kids, activities, working out, watering the plants, anything and everything will get the in the way of making time to be healthy. And with reason; life is simply busy.  But your health should never be sacrificed.

 

Eating Sustainable Foods

The importance of eating sustainably is imperative for the planet, but it is for us as humans too. A clean and healthy planet means clean and healthy people. A polluted and dying planet means, well, you know the rest. Eating sustainable foods is a huge step forward in protecting the planet, your health, and plants' and animals' health too. Eating healthy and sustainably prevents more fossil fuels from entering our environment and allows us to avoid eating any of the harsh chemicals and pesticides that conventional crops may contain. Eating healthy and sustainable also means supporting urban farms, organic farms, and indoor farms. Even better yet, supporting the indoor and urban farmers behind the indoor farms. 

 

Indoor Farming

Ensuring you’re eating beyond organic means knowing exactly where you’re buying your food and veggies from. Having your veggies from indoor farming gives transparency in what was used and done to grow them. Indoor farming grows veggies from inside a building that mimics the outside, minus all the natural factors that slow them from growing or being eaten by pests- just how you would when growing indoor plants. BAMBOX uses soil, lighting, water and care, guaranteeing you fresh produce. Indoor farming allows the close monitoring of microgreens too, which we should be eating a lot more of.

 

Eating Microgreens from Indoor Farmers

Microgreens are veggies that haven’t matured. The first leaves that have grown from seedlings such as arugula or Rambo radish leaves, are microgreens. It’s a fact that microgreens contain way more nutrients than a fully-grown vegetable like fully grown arugula or radishes because of the high concentration of antioxidants.  Eating them indoor farmed microgreens ensures you’re eating (extremely) healthy and eating fresh produce as well being a part of something bigger; contributing to lessening your footprint on Earth, eating sustainable and supporting local farms who grow your veggies/salads indoor.
