The UPAG Mission
UPAG is committed to helping people eat healthier by growing the most nutritious foods a person can have access to; Microgreens and Fresh Produce Grown from Your Own Home. Our growing systems are not expensive and fancy, they are affordable and practical. If every family implemented the simple, easy to grow microgreens into their diets, obesity would become a thing of the past. Chronic illness and disease caused by obesity can be reversed, not treated with pills that make pharmaceutical companies wealthy, an industry that thrives off the sick, not the healthy.
Microgreens are 4 to 40 times more nutritious than their full-grown, mature counterparts. This is because you harvest microgreens at 2 to 4 inches before their true leaves show, about 12 days after planting. When plants grow beyond the true leave stage the plant begin to lose its concentrated nutritional value.
There is a wide variety of microgreen seeds to satisfy anyone’s taste preference. Microgreens are fresh, crunchy and super tasty. Grocery stores only carry 2 or 3 selections of microgreens and you will pay anywhere from $3 to $6 per oz. You may be able to find a larger variety at Farmers Markets, but you will still spend upwards of $3 to $6 per oz. or $64 to $70 per pound. People cannot afford this high cost food which creates a barrier to nutrition.
You can grow your own microgreens using the UPAG Microgreens System for .72 cents to $1.24 per oz. or $11.52 to $19.84 per pound, depending on your kit selection. It is our goal to make our microgreens and produce affordable and available to everyone.
Our grow systems are hydroponic and do not require soil, our plants are grown indoors, in your climate controlled environment using NON-GMO, pathogen free seeds. There is no need for pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers because there is no dirt, and you are growing indoors. You will feed your plants organic nutrients during their tiny short growth stage.
By investing in your health, and supporting our project, you are on the road to a healthier you. You are helping us make a difference in the lives of people globally become healthier and live longer, active and productive lives.
