We believe …
We believe microgreens farmers produce vegetables that are essential to building health, wellness, and social change. Therefore we are motivated beyond our own self-interest–we are committed to the success of our community farmers and motivated by impact. We are invested in promoting education to consumers about these crops.
41 percent of small growers turn a profit each year, but the majority fail to break even. For this reason, 64 percent of small growers also work another job.
IMGA Florida’s vision is to be the most responsive, sustainable, and viable microgreens organization by providing micro-opportunities for members to influence macro-change in agriculture and their communities.
