Newcastle Greens: Local microgreens pack a punch

Victory Gardens follows an array of farmers and growers on Instagram and there was one we have been super keen to catch up with and feature on our blog. Newcastle Greens (@newcastlegreens) packs a whole heap of greenie goodness into every Instagram post!

Newcastle Greens delivers a unique range of microgreens, wheatgrass, edible flowers and baby leaf to restaurants and cafes around the Greater Newcastle area. Owner and grower Elle Brown was kind enough to share her journey which began with the extended family pitching in to help build a greenhouse in the backyard of her Waratah West home.

As a mother to a toddler and a teenager, Elle started her home-grown business just over a year ago. She is still waiting to catch her breath. The business has taken off and she’s loving it.
