“Everyone needs a man cave and I have one”

Ross Lewis has an indoor farm where he grows a dozen varieties of microgreens. His 2000 square foot man cave is the headquarters of Rain City Greens. 

“The greens are more nutritious when they're in their smaller form,” he says, “because it's right when it starts to grow that it's most nutritious. That seed is giving it everything it's got.” Microgreens are popular as garnish at high-end restaurants, something Lewis knows because he works at one. He is an executive sous chef at Trace Market where Team Evening recently hosted a show.

Lewis’s boss, Steven Ariel, started an urban microgreen farm in 2007. “There were no producers in the area really,” says Ariel, “and we were ordering it from either California or Chicago.” Lewis inherited the farm and has taken it to a new level. “It's all automated,” says Ariel, who is visibly impressed. “Timers. Humidity controls. Temperature controls. Yeah, it’s a pretty well-designed space.”
