A little bit about Jay Taylor: Jay Taylor is a musician, sound healer, and urban farmer. He first began growing food while teaching at Carlos Fuentes Elementary in Avondale. The home/school experiment began with growing leafy greens in jars, then tomatoes in buckets, and finally an automated tower system. The limitations of these methods in terms of production and electricity consumption became obvious over time so Jay began looking into alternatives. The answer he found was microgreens. They were cheap to produce, easy to grow, took less than two weeks from seed to harvest, were high yielding, superbly nutritious, and undeniably delicious. It was empowering for Jay to produce his own food at such a high level and deeply disturbing to watch children eat highly processed food in the cafeteria each day. Microgreens 101 was born out of Jay's desire to support others in tapping into their own power and taking control of what they put into their body.
