Compass Group Team Bonding with Super Farmers

This pandemic has caused a huge change in our lives and it has been a stressful period for many of us, fighting against COVID-19, managing our work from home, and continuously providing our services for our client without any disruptions.

Recently at Compass Group, we partner with “Super Farmers” –  a wellness company focused on helping you eat and live better through food and lifestyle education. Our team has come together and attended this wellness engagement program, which was conducted via Microsoft teams, with many our management staff participating and learning how to grow their own vegetable microgreens with this charming Urban Farming Kit.

What you will find inside each earth-friendly paper pot: 

-A bag of organic soil (350g)

-2 simple-to-grow Seed Sticks

-A growing guide

This is also perfect gifting ideas and for people who are;

  1. Passion for urban farming
  2. Lives in a small space
  3. Would like to grow their own food but want to start small
  4. Boost your mental wellness and lift your emotions by watching something grow

Look at how our people have successfully planted the watching the microgreens sprout. It may look tiny but it has powerfully nutritious and you are able to start eating them at 7-10 days old, before they grow to their full-sized versions. Intense flavours await! Try it!

There’s no better way to perpetuate the eating local, sustainable foods trend than by growing your own fruits, vegetables, herbs and beans—either in your own yard, at a community garden or even in your own home. It is just like cooking from scratch at home, maintaining a fruitful, sustainable home garden provides a sense of empowerment because you’re in complete control of what you’ll consume. Not only do you know exactly where your food comes from, but you also control how it’s grown (100 percent organic, without pesticides, for example).

Here’s the recipe for you to create when you grow your own microgreens:

PEACH SALAD

Ingredients:

-Ripe peaches/nectarines (2 to 3, sliced)

-Microgreens at approx. 14 days-old (a handful, cut above the soil level)
-Feta/goat cheese (just enough to give a contrast, not too much)
-Shallots (1 small bulb, minced)
-Apple Cider Vinegar (1 tbsp)
-1/2 orange (zest and juice)-Salt & Pepper (to taste)
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil (2 tbsp)

Directions:
-Arrange sliced peaches on a plate
-Crumble cheese all over
-Make the dressing by mixing the shallots, vinegar, orange juice and zest, salt & pepper and EVOO together
-Drizzle dressing
-Garnish with microgreens (Kang Kong & Chye Sim microgreens will go well with this salad)

Note: Chinese Kale microgreens, which has a bitter-sweet profile, will go really well with savoury foods like smoked salmon or ham/bacon.

Today’s demanding world means busy urban warriors are overloaded with responsibilities and left with little or no time to take care of their emotional and physical health needs. Take some time off your mind and start growing your own microgreens today!
