About the Grower

IMG 9526During the back to the earth movement of the 1960s - remembered by some as the Scott and Helen Nearing period - we moved to Maine and began what was to become one of many adventures growing organic, pesticide-free vegetables.

As a master gardener I joined with others to develop a demonstration garden at Morris Farm in Wiscasset to show families how easy it was to grow fresh vegetables at home; later growing numerous tomato seedlings as a fundraiser for the farm. I have grown tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings for a local CSA.

IMG 9552In the summer of 2009, my passion for growing seedlings escalated during a visit with my sister, Gail, a grower in PEI, Canada, where I was introduced to micro greens - these tiny tender and tasty seedlings you are about to eat - thus, with the support and advice from family and friends, emerged MicroMainea.
