Climate Quick Tip: Grow a Scrappy Supply

Create an at-home harvest. 

  • Cut used green onion stalks to about an inch long, keeping roots and bulbs intact. Plant these in a small pot that gets at least six hours of sunlight, water regularly, and watch them grow. 
  • Cut off the bottom inch of celery stalks, set it in a small bowl with just enough water to cover the bottom, and place in sunlight. Once roots sprout, replant into a larger pot.
  • Untangle the roots of living herbs and replant them in a larger pot.

A single purchase of green onion, celery, and living herbs from your local grocery store can kickstart an abundant supply of home-grown food when you replant them, ensuring you never have to rebuy easy-to-grow produce again.
