How is Little Green Sprouts different from Little Green Thumbs?

A Little Green Sprouts garden is smaller than a Little Green Thumbs garden, and is best suited to growing micro-greens, lettuce and a small assortment of herbs. The timeframe needed for growing Little Green Sprouts crops is much less than a Little Green Thumbs garden, which requires months to produce from seed to vegetable. The program is best suited to Kindergarten to Grade 2 students, while Little Green Thumbs is best suited to Grade 3 to 6 classrooms. The Little Green Thumbs program offers increased support and training over the Little Green Sprouts program, as well as greater access to learning and growing resources appropriate to higher grades.
