Over the past month or so, we’ve all heard a great deal about the effect that climate change is likely to have on our planet, our lives and those of future generations. Everyone like to think that they can play their part, no matter how small – so here’s a great and also tasty way of doing your bit . . .

Incorporating home-grown or locally grown microgreens into your regular diet is a great way to lower your carbon footprint and live more sustainably – that’s because growing microgreens requires way fewer resources than traditionally farmed food. Founded by business entrepreneur Linden Stone, Wessex Microgreens is a farm based at Mere, in the south of Wiltshire, which while specialising in growing microherbs, focuses on sustainability, and encourages those interested in microfarming to seek a way forward in reducing their carbon footprint. Each member of the company’s staff has a passion for food, and works tirelessly to achieve the goals of Wessex Microgreens. Each and every variety is grown with organic seeds and organic/peat free soil. The company is growing constantly, and is now looking to set up in additional premises in the Trowbridge area.
