A 1 to 4-litre jar (1-quart to 1-gallon), depending on how many people you plan on feeding
The right size and weight bowl for propping up the jar
A bit of netting or screen, nylon tulle bought from a fabric store or a grey screen made of fibreglass bought from a hardware store,
either will work just fine.
Fresh clean water
Preferably organically grown seeds with good germination. Avoid buying garden seeds unless they have not been treated. You can find the
usual sprouting seeds in most natural or organic food stores. If you have any doubt, just ask if the seeds are organic. Buy in bulk if you
happen to know a farmer that doesn't use chemicals and grows the kind of seeds you want. You can keep most seeds for an entire year if
they're stored in a cool dry place.
A home sprouting device can also be used. The brands we recommend are EasyFarm or SproutMaster. Simply follow the directions provided
with the device.
