Image for Regrow Your Food Scraps

Don’t compost your kitchen scraps just yet. One of the easiest (and most fun!) ways to reduce food waste is to use your food scraps to regrow vegetables and herbs.

You’ll want to start with healthy, organic vegetables or herbs and glass jars. Not everything will sprout; you may need to observe for a week and start over if no growth appears. Once growth begins, you can keep it in water and enjoy the trimmings or transplant into soil in a pot or in your garden. You’ll want to change the water every 1-2 days to keep your scraps fresh. This can also be an interactive science experiment for kids!
