Central Wellington store is a place where a local start-up company set up a food growing stand, complete with watering system and LED lighting. The setup offers vegetables in small sizes, often referred to as microgreens. Although the whole concept looks a bit futuristic, customers have already been accepting this novel idea. Microgreens are much richer in nutrients than regular size plants, a fact long ago recognized by bartenders and chefs. When it comes to growing food locally, this concept is as close you can get, while It brings innovation and a new mindset to the local community.
- The newest thing in grocery markets could very well be an in-house growing stand.
- Equiped with state-of-the-art hydration technology and LED lighting the stands add a brand new dimension to the supermarket experience.
- These stands used to grow micro-greens have already found use in restaurants needing a handy way to keep fresh garnishes at the ready.
“Customers were as intrigued as anyone else at the multicoloured lights and the return-your-tray system.”
