At Chicago’s Indoor Garden, we carefully and lovingly raise USDA Organic Certified wheatgrass on rich, worm-composted soil. Within 7-10 days these wheat sprouts grow into 6-7 inch blades of sweet juice grass. Juicing the grass, freshly cut, yields an unparalleled “green drink” which, when used in conjunction with a well-balanced high-fiber diet, can be an ideal component of your wellness program.
