Microgreens

Registration for this class is now closed. We hope to see you for another Horticulture & Gardening class soon!

Looking for an easy and fast-growing crop you can grow in your own kitchen? Look no further than this introduction to microgreens, which are often ready to harvest in less than two weeks! You will discover the benefits and important details of properly caring for these tasty treats from seed to harvest. After an in-depth preview of what to expect day-to-day from your first at-home crop, you will sample several tasty varieties, then prepare a batch of your favorite to take home.

After class, explore the Gardens at your leisure; registration includes Garden admission for the day.

Instructor: Mauricio Rico has always had a love for plants, and houseplants and terrariums are a special passion. He finds spreading the knowledge and love of plants to be rewarding. Mauricio’s professional journey began with an elective horticulture class at Tarrant County College. This motivated him to pursue Horticulture Science at Tarleton State University. At Tarleton, Mauricio’s interests shifted from landscaping plants to tropical house plants. As part of a senior project, he created a horticulture business that specialized in terrariums. Mauricio’s project was so popular among his classmates, he realized it could be a successful small business. In 2019, Mauricio graduated with a BS in Horticultural Science and established Rico’s Terrariums. You can find Rico’s Terrariums—in small and large containers—at local farmers markets or by custom ordering from Mauricio. Connect with Mauricio on Facebook “Rico’s Terrariums” and on Instagram @ricosterrariums.
