A business owner from Stanmore has decided to host an online workshop to help encourage residents to go green, reuse and recycle.
Megha Shah who owns Siyana London, a sustainable accessories business, will be hosting an online workshop on Saturday, October 24, to teach people how to grow microgreens at home.
This is part of Megha’s love for all things ethically and sustainably made, as she hopes the workshop will encourage more people to grow produce in their garden.
She said: “Working with artists from India, I have always loved hand woven scarfs and accessories.
“All our products are ethically made and mainly organic cotton and then we have different textured materials and even make bags out of reef plastic.”
Megha said that during the pandemic she started researching microgreens and wanted to do something to move her business online during these unprecedented times.
She said: “I want to encourage children and parents to use reusable boxes which would otherwise be thrown into landfill.
“These boxes can be converted into flowerpots which then can be used to grow microgreens at home.”
Megha said that by growing microgreens at home, she has cut down on buying greens from the supermarket.
She said: “We have stopped buying salads and started growing everything at home because it is all organic.
“Kids love it. My daughter keeps watching me in the garden every day.
“I wanted to do something that kids could take part in and parents can encourage them to take part from home.”
