Our Student Forum

One of the perks of the Sprouts & Microgreens Course is being able to have a platform to celebrate your sprouting successes! The forum is also a place to ask questions and get support from our team. 

You can buy sprouts & microgreens at the grocery store. But they often come wrapped in mounds of plastic, are grossly overpriced, and have already lost much of their nutritional value. The Sprouts & Microgreens course empowers you to easily grow your own food and access the absolute freshest greens year-round in your own home.

A proper introduction is long overdue. 

Hi, I’m Christelle!

Environmentalist • Forager • Sprout Lover

“I’m a Swiss environmental expert with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and an M.A. in Natural Resources, with 10 years of experience in botany. I’ve been a sprouts fanatic and raw foods enthusiast since 2009 when I spent 3 weeks on a fully raw, plant-based, 80% sprouts diet. During that period, I experienced changes in my physical health, specifically in terms of renewed vitality, my skin clearing up, and better digestion. I also experienced breakthroughs in my mental health in terms of finally feeling at peace with food, and a restored sense of serenity in my life. These physical and mental health changes convinced me to continue incorporating a high volume of raw foods, sprouts, and microgreens into my meals well over a decade later. I’m excited to share about these powerful baby plants bursting with nutrients in our Sprouts & Microgreens course.”

“I enjoyed the sprouting course and I would whole-heartedly recommend it. Cristina and Christelle did a great job educating us about different sprouting techniques while also sharing their own tips. They certainly have a strong understanding of these topics and I felt like I learned a lot without feeling that I am studying—the atmosphere was very friendly and fun. I also felt that the course was planned out well and they shared the materials of the course that we can use later if we forget something. Overall, I loved the course!” – Olga K.

“Really enjoyed this class. I’ve just started sprouting and also want to get into microgreens, so it was helpful that this covers both. I also really appreciated the sprouting schedule as that is something that I don’t quite have a handle on.” – Rebecca L.

Eco-Citizen School

“Permacrafters is an incredible organization; Christelle and Cristina are such fun and engaging teachers, and really encouraged me to learn new skills and new ways of looking at the world! Thank you for providing such an informative and eco-friendly platform!” – Karishma M.

Eco-Citizen School

“I took the Sprouts & Microgreens workshop out of curiosity – I had heard about the amazing benefits of eating sprouted grains/seeds but knew very little beyond that and so I was very excited when I heard about this workshop that not only teaches us about why sprouts/microgreens are so great but actually teaches us how to grow them! I also lack a green thumb and was worried that growing them myself would be too difficult or time-consuming, but Cristina and Christelle took us step-by-step through their tried-and-tested methods which was so much more doable than I expected! You can really tell they live what they teach – they showed us multiple ways to grow them depending on how much we wanted to invest and taught us lots of great hacks they have discovered in growing their own. These gals have really mastered bringing permaculture to the average person – they’ve made it accessible and easy for newcomers like me! I love growing sprouts and microgreens and adding them into my daily meals. I would absolutely recommend this workshop (and Permacrafters more generally!) to anyone looking to learn more about ways to live more sustainably and eat healthier!” – kendal S.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course for?

How does FOREVER sound? It’s yours to keep as long as the internet exists!

How much should I budget for materials?

We encourage you to recycle items you already have at home to make sprouting jars, growing containers, and drip trays. For sprouting, you will need to purchase seeds (about $7-$10 per ¼ lb) and a sprouting lid (as cheap as $6 for 4 lids) or cheesecloth (around $3 per pack). For growing microgreens, you will need to purchase seeds (about $7-$10 per ¼ lb) and soil (around $8 for 8qt). Sprouting and growing microgreens at home is much cheaper than buying sprouts and microgreens from the grocery store.

Do you offer refunds or exchanges?

All sales are final (unless you accidentally purchased the course multiple times). We are a mission-based business that offers accessible pricing, therefore our profit margins are low. In the digital content world, where courses are immediately downloadable, there’s unfortunately a high prominence of content theft through illegitimate refund requests. Our two-person team can’t allocate the time required to keep up with this regrettable trend. 

However, we want to assure you that if there are any updates you wish to see to the course, we will immediately seek to make these improvements. Do not hesitate to ask, because we create new content every week and are constantly updating our courses and adding new video lessons.

To give you further peace of mind, we offer exchanges. We are so confident that you will love the Sprouts & Microgreens Course, that if by day 7 you aren’t delighted, you can exchange the course for any of our other eco-classes of equal value (Secondhand Living, Zero Waste Menstruation, Environmental Activism, Composting, Conscious Cleaning, Intro to Zero Waste Living). These courses have received hundreds of glowing reviews. 

Are the food recipes plant based?

Yup, no animal products.

2 + 4 =

You have what it takes to grow your own food indoors. 

You just need some straightforward guidance to move past hesitation and get into a good routine.

By this time next week, you could be eating grocery-store lettuce wilting in its plastic bag.
