Mi Oh My Hydroponic Farms, a worker-owned cooperative specializing in sustainable agriculture, is offering a Home Hydroponics Master Program that will teach students the art of cultivating microgreens and mushrooms in the comfort of their own home, regardless of income or experience level. The four-week course will be offered virtually as well as in person in the Bronx from 2 to 4 p.m. on October 8, 15, 22 and 29, 2023.

“Secure your spot today and take a step closer to self-reliance, sustainability and the joy of homegrown produce,” says Carla Gajardo, co-farm director.

During the first two weeks, students will learn how to grow nutrient-packed microgreens in even the tiniest urban spaces; gain practical skills for setting up their own microgreens cultivation system; and will take home a basic microgreens growing kit. Week three and four will be dedicated to mushrooms. Students will unlock the secrets of cultivating delicious and healthy mushrooms at home; learn how to maximize their space for mushroom growth in urban apartments; and receive a basic mushroom growing kit.
