Making your Organic Kitchen.
We have found up to 25 organic plants that can be regrown – yes, kitchen scraps that would have previously gone into the trash or out to the composting bin now have a chance to start again. You’ll be thrilled to learn that using the base of unused bok choi, romaine lettuce, cabbage, and celery; the top of a carrot; an avocado seed; a potato eye; the root base of leeks, scallions, spring onions, lemongrass or fennel; you can regrow your organic produce and benefit from maximum produce yields. You’ll have an instant indoor micro-garden that you can relocate to your patio! You’ll be amazed to see what can grow in a short period of time.
Now you can use this authentic personal farm-to-table process: growing organic vegetables using your organic food scraps in water (hydroponically)!

To support your community find a local farmer’s market or grocery store that carries local and organic produce.
- Take the leftover roots and place them in a container with a small amount of water
- The roots should be wet but not submerged
- Place the container in or near a sunny window
- Within 3-5 days you’ll begin to see new growth
