We believe …

We believe that microgreen farmers play a crucial role in producing vegetables that are not only vital for nourishing our bodies but also instrumental in fostering health, wellness, and social change. As advocates of this incredible farming practice, we are driven by a purpose that extends far beyond our own self-interest. Our unwavering commitment lies in the success and growth of our community farmers, as we recognize the transformative impact they have on individuals, communities, and the environment.

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.
