Before certain edible plants mature, they sprout nutritious, flavor-packed leaves known culinarily as microgreens. Learn from expert Judah Sworney, owner of Greens by Grass, about the health benefits and tips for growing these tiny greens, and sample two light appetizers crafted by Chef Jesse Sherwood from The Hill restaurant located at Serenbe. This class takes place in our Edible Garden Outdoor Kitchen. 

Judah Sworney has been the owner and head grower of Greens by Grass since May 2020. He began growing microgreens as a way to provide nutritious and flavorful greens to the community and chefs alike. Their growing techniques allow control over the growing environment and are organic and herbicide/pesticide free.

Chef Jesse Sherwood is Chef de Cuisine at The Hill, the wellness community located just outside Atlanta. Jesse has been with The Hill for the last 3 years, and is the artist behind the delicious food that can be found there.

Our partnership proves that microgreens and talented chefs make for a fantastic combination!
