US (KS): Grant-winning microgreens business to open in September

Grant-winning Tiny Greens and Herbs, LLC, is a new microgreens business based in Bourbon County that will open its doors in September.

Tiny Greens and Herbs will provide Bourbon County families and community members with convenient, year-round access to locally grown, nutrient-packed greens and herbs, according to owner Cherri Walrod. As a part of a series featuring the grant recipients of the Healthy Bourbon County Action Team’s Center For Economic Growth in their latest grant cycle.

“This start-up business produces sustainably-grown microgreens, which are tiny, immature vegetable and herb plants that are packed with up to 40 times more nutrients than their full-grown counterparts,” she said.

Phytonutrients, also called phytochemicals or antioxidants, are compounds produced by plants that provide health benefits to the body. Along with phytonutrients (antioxidants), microgreens are loaded with vitamins and minerals, flavorful, easy to prepare and
fun to eat, according to Walrod.

During this grant cycle, they awarded grants to nine area businesses.
The Heathly Bourbon County Action Team Grant Program is funded by the Patterson Family Foundation and is a collaborative effort through partnerships with the Kansas Small Business Development Center at Pittsburg State and the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce. Cherri can be contacted at
