Gordon College Cook Grows Greens in Winter
- by Guest
A line cook at Gordon College in Wenham, MA, by day, David Mather is the CEO of Simply Green during his off-hours.
His passion project for almost three years, Simply Green offers a fresh take on microgreens — using them as a garnish is simply one of many ways to prepare them and enjoy the health benefits. David’s indoor farm is composed of multiple vertical growing systems, which optimizes plant growth for increased yield. David sells the microgreens to local high-end restaurants.
On a wintry day, David brought in baskets of his microgreens for the Bon Appétit team to try. Since then David has conducted two demos and shared his products in the café. Students especially enjoy his grape, honeydew, and almond milk smoothies blended with greens.
