We will be sharing the most easiest ways to grow your own superfood, let it be your garden or your balcony, your roof top or just a small window spot, you can grow almost anything with little care and lot of love!
Take hand full of wheat grains, organic wheat is always better!
Before we talk about the next steps. Please understand that this is our simple method and approach to grow 'wheat grass', if you have a better experience and know easier way to grow our own superfood, please feel free to share it with us and we will make sure to share it on our website.
Take a empty pot, take some soil,compost, dry grass, dry leaves, little kitchen waste, old news paper. What ever you can find around you. You will eat the food grown in this pot so make sure not to add anything toxic or plastic.
Now mix all this in a wider container or on a old news paper before adding the mix in the pot. The idea is to have our soil soft and spongy to allow air circulation and water penetration. Make sure to put some small stones or pebbles at the bottom of the pot to allow the access water to flow out of the holes which are in the bottom of the pot, this holes are there because of a reason.
Yes, it sounds funny to talk to our seeds, but they will love it when you tell them to be stronger and healthier and how much you care about them and love them, after all.... that love is going to come back to you in 2 weeks with a multiplied effect :)
Now fill up your empty pot with all the soil mix you have made, water the pot till it over flows. After a while the access water will run out and you are ready to let your seed babies play in the playground.
Take out two hand full of the soil mix and keep it aside in another container, then sprinkle a hand full of seeds on the main pot and pamper them with some love, tell them they look cute playing in the soil. Now sprinkle the soil mix over this seeds like covering them with a blanket of soft soil. This will keep them moist and happy. It will look like they are just pipping out a little but are still hiding under the care of their mum.
Sprinkle some water over it, and let them enjoy for the day!
Too much sun is not good so keep the pot in a place where it can get the morning or evening soft sunlight but not the harsh noon sun. Sprinkle water once a day, too much water is no good for them!
Its always good to pluck them by hands without using any tools, they love it that way.
Wash them well, and enjoy them! They will bring you so much of nutrition.
You can make juice out of it, use as a garnish on salad or curries, just eat them as they are, do what ever it feels like!
But make sure to share it with your family and friends!
So what are you waiting for? This is the real green revolution!
Share your wheat grass affairs with us, tell the world that you are growing your own 'Superfood'
We would like to thank Susmitha to share her affair with wheat grass, all this amazing photos are taken by her. And we are waiting for her story in her own words to share it with the world!
Check it out! Why we call it super food.
40 Points about Wheat grass & its Nutritional Values
1 Wheatgrass Juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available.
2 Chlorophyll is the first product of light and, therefore, contains more light energy than any other element.
3 Wheatgrass juice is a crude chlorophyll and can be taken orally and as a colon implant without toxic side effects.
4 Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life.
5 Wheatgrass is high in oxygen like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. The brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly-oxygenated environment.
6 Chlorophyll is anti-bacterial and can be used inside and outside the body as a healer.
7 Nutrition experts say that it only takes minutes to digest wheatgrass juice and uses up very little body energy.
8 Science has proven that chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.
9 Chlorophyll (wheatgrass) rebuilds the bloodstream. Studies of various animals have shown chlorophyll to be free of any toxic reaction. The red cell count was returned to normal within 4 to 5 days of the administration of chlorophyll, even in those animals which were known to be extremely anemic or low in red cell count.
10 Farmers in the Midwest who have sterile cows and bulls put them on wheatgrass to restore fertility. (The high magnesium content in chlorophyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hormones.)
11 Chlorophyll can be extracted from many plants, but wheatgrass is superior because it has been found to have over 100 elements needed by man. If grown in organic soil, it absorbs 92 of the known 102 minerals from the soil.
12 Wheatgrass has what is called the grass-juice factor, which has been shown to keep herbivorous animals alive indefinitely.
13 Some institutes based on wheatgrass research has been helping people get well from chronic disorders for 30 years using wheatgrass.
14 Liquid chlorophyll gets into the tissues, refines them and makes them over.
15 Wheatgrass Juice is a superior detoxification agent compared to carrot juice and other fruits and vegetables. Experts says that 15 pounds of Wheatgrass is the equivalent of 350 pounds of carrot, lettuce, celery, and so forth.
16 Liquid chlorophyll washes drug deposits from the body.
17 Chlorophyll neutralizes toxins in the body.
18 Chlorophyll helps purify the liver.
19 Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems.
20 In the American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Gruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits. The article suggests the following clinical uses for chlorophyll: to clear up foul smelling odors, neutralize Strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, overcome chronic inner-ear inflammation and infection, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever, and cure advanced pyorrhea in many cases.
21 Wheatgrass Juice cures acne and even help to remove scars after it has been ingested for seven to eight months. The diet must be improved at the same time.
22 Wheatgrass juice acts as a detergent in the body and is used as a body deodorant.
23 A small amount of wheatgrass juice in the human diet helps prevents tooth decay.
24 Wheatgrass juice held in the mouth for 5 minutes will help eliminate toothaches. It pulls poisons from the gums.
25 Gargle Wheat grass Juice for a sore throat.
26 Drink Wheatgrass Juice for skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis.

33 Wheatgrass implants (enemas) are great for healing and detoxifying the colon walls. The implants also heal and cleanse the internal organs. After an enema, wait 20 minutes, then implant 4 ounces of wheatgrass juice. Retain for 20 minutes.
34 Wheatgrass juice is great for constipation and keeping the bowels open. It is high in magnesium.
35 Dr. Birscher, a research scientist, called chlorophyll "concentrated sun power." He said, "chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and the lungs."
36 According to Dr. Birscher, nature uses chlorophyll (wheatgrass) as a body cleanser, rebuilder, and neutralizer of toxins.
37 Wheat grass juice can dissolve the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses. The effect of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production.
38 Wheatgrass Juice reduces high blood pressure and enhances the capillaries.
39 Wheat grass Juice can remove heavy metals from the body.
40 Wheatgrass juice is great for blood disorders of all kinds

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.
A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.
One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.
People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.
People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.
People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.
People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.
With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.
PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to be involved in permaculture aid work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture aid worker experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.
The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to do paid permaculture design consultancy work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture consultancy experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.
