As urban farmers located in Burke, VA, Green Planet Farms LLC is a business focused on the health and wellness of all of our customers by growing and distributing microgreens, a healthier and more efficient alternative to full vegetables. We also sell fresh, hydroponic vegetables and herbs.
Microgreens are seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs, that are concentrated with nutrients. Although small in size, microgreens contain up to 40-50x the vitamin and nutrient levels of their full grown vegetable and herb counterparts.
Green Planet wants to serve the public with a fresh and locally grown source of nutriment, which can help people become and stay healthy. Sustaining sufficient nutrition levels help maintain a healthy immune system. Staying healthy is especially important during these times, and we want to help in the only way we know how. Try microgreens today!
I grew up in the farmlands of Western New York. I have always been interested in the outdoors and nature, which probably led me down the path of my biology education.
I took an interest in farming and gardening when I took my first ecology class in college and I realized how synergistic and multifaceted nature truly is.
As an entrepreneur, I want to expand Green Planet Farms into the farm of the future, introducing indoor hydroponic and aquaponic growing techniques to the DMV area for full vegetable production that can be accomplished anywhere.
Serving the public with tasty and nutritious food fills me with joy, and the innovative ideas I have for the future fills me with wonder of what's to come!
Dave and I started growing microgreens and wheatgrass for health benefits just before Covid hit. During the lockdown, I learned the art of growing micgrogreens pretty quickly and I love doing it! It's such a peaceful practice and the health benefits that micogreens provide to our customers are astronomical. It feels good offering such a great product with many benefits to the public. At this time, Dave and I are actively seeking our next step for Green Planet and are excited for what's to come. Stay tuned!
