From the founder

I'm Alice, the creative, owner & founder of Teeny Greeny and I believe that anyone can grow their own fresh, tasty superfood in any space they have, with what-ever time they can spare - honestly, If I can, then you can too!!

As one to disrupt the narrative both on a personal level, and when it comes to the sustainable growth of a Micro-business (pun intended) Vs the BIG boys in the business world, I truly feel that small independent businesses’s can make huge impact when they build a community of like-minded folk, who all envision changes in the world that will benefit our planet, our people and our animals.  

If you really want the nitty gritty on how I landed in the Green Space then read more here. (A personal Blog that led me to creating a business with a soul that appeared to have nothing to do with Microgreens!)  

Why I want to do better...... 

With a background in urban farming, choosing organic and biodynamic practices over conventional, I started pondering......"how could I share my own knowledge and passions with anyone else wanting to start their own micro-adventure - growing their own food at home, as simply as possible, with everything included, plus have access to my own experience as a grower and connect with other like-minded growers?" And.......just like that, (well maybe not just, but you get the drift!) the Microfarm™ Grow Kit was created! 

This didn’t happen overnight, no product is, and it’s not been without trial and error along the way but with grit, determination and leading with my core values this has led me to build a fantastic teeny tribe, I hope you along with everyone here, shares these values. 

I am a believer in total transparency and am the first to answer any questions you may have over why and how I do what I do, I’ll tell you first off – I work only with suppliers that encompass only the best ingredients, sourced as locally as possible, traded and created fairly to make sure the Teeny Greeny Microfarm Kits are as ethical as possible. 

The Microfarms....

Teeny Greeny Microgreen Grow Kits are designed, tested and then created by me and a teeny team in small batches, meaning there is no waste and that any resources are unnecessarily stripped to meet mass demand for a nominal cost. 

I prefer to offer value over cost and that is what works for me. Sell less but do better is my approach.

Teeny Greeny then ship these out to our community members and we check in regularly, offering support to get our community growing! Then 1% of our turnover (that’s turnover not profit) goes to 1% for the planet, a further 2% each season go to other causes. (see more on this below).

From January I will be creating seasonal bundles alongside creating limited edition products each and every season, so if you have just started growing using one of our current Microfarm kits or are interested in a particular seed or kit – let me know what you’d love to see stay! 

Our seasonal bundles and kits will go live in December, after we close our orders for Christmas (which will open on 31st October)
