Growing organic sprouts is as local and cheap as food production gets.
Sprouts are a great way to start your path to health and independence. Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton discuss how simple it is to produce your own food on a kitchen countertop. Keep the trays rotated for daily harvests.
The majority of sprouting supplies are cheap and incredibly easy to use. The BPA-free Victorio 4-tray sprouter, shown in the video, distributes water evenly and collects used water at the bottom. Organic and ready for long-term storage, broccoli sprout seeds and many other varieties grow in 3-4 days and have been found in studies to contain high levels of sulforophane, believed to have immense anti-cancer and anti-microbial properties. In short, this is a great way to start your self-sufficiency and prepare for emergency food storage as well.
