Slegers Greens is a family owned greenhouse operation located at the edge of Strathroy, 20 minutes west of London, ON. This close proximity to Anna’s Flowers, coupled with the fact that the greens are ‘living’ ensures unparalleled quality and freshness every time!
Slegers Greens have been doing what they do best since 1987. In 2004 they became organically certified after many years of interest in organics and several growing trials to find organic techniques that were effective and compatible with their growing systems. The organics that they grow are not only healthy for us to eat, but the manner in which they are produced is also good for the environment. Talk about a win-win!
What are ‘Living’ Greens?
Living greens are greens (lettuce, herbs, micros) that are packaged living in their own soil. All you need to do is snip and serve them!
What are the benefits of ‘Living’ Greens?
- They last longer this way…
- They taste better this way…
- They are better for you this way…
Living organic greens not only provide a high level of vitamins and minerals but they also provide a very high level of enzymes that promote healthy digestion. By eating them shortly after cutting them you get the full benefit of the living enzymes. Cooking destroys enzymes in food so it is best to eat them raw in order to receive their full benefit. Storing your greens varies depending on the type, click here for various recommendations from the pros themselves!
If you haven’t sampled these living beauties, then we would highly suggest you do! Living greens are perfect for those who do not have a garden or for enjoying optimal freshness during these colder months when gardening isn’t possible in our region.
