Greens of Haligonia is a small but thriving urban sprout farm located in the North End of Halifax Nova Scotia. Our first time sprouting was in a small kitchen window while living in Toronto, Ontario. Sprouting changed our lives: we found that no leafy greens could compare to the crunch and taste of fresh sprouts grown right on our window sill.
Soon enough, word spread and our sprouts began to build a reputation for themselves. First one store would inquire, then a restaurant, and before we knew it our little business had taken off. You can currently find our sprouts at Local Source Market, Pete’s Halifax, Pete’s Bedford, Noggins at Alderny Market, Fruition at the Seaport Market, Organic Earth Market, and Home Grown Organics. We also provide sprouts to many restaurants on the Halifax Peninsula and in Dartmouth. We only use organic certified seeds from Mumm’s Sprouting Seeds - we think they are the best sprouting seeds in the country! (sprouting.com).
We want people to know that growing your own food is easy - whether it’s herbs on your windowsill, rhubarb in your backyard, or tomatoes in your local community garden. All it takes is a little effort, and the results are delicious! Your belly, your community and the planet will all thank you. :)
