FGF Microgreens with John Hass

FGF Microgreens started in October of 2020. Disappointed in the produce that was present at the onset of the pandemic at the grocery store, John Hass began his search for growing nutritious produce for himself. He found microgreens and found that they were actually more nutrition stored in a small package than the full grown counterpart, that was also quicker and easier to grow.

John discovered an opportunity through the circumstances he found himself in during the pandemic.  He encourages everyone to discover what you are passionate about, find something others can’t live without, research everything you can about it and share it with the world!

Annabelle loves swimming, reading and making bracelets. She started her bracelet business, Be Happy Beads, after getting a bracelet making kit for her birthday.

Annabelle reminds new entrepreneurs that you may get many “no’s” but then there will be a “yes”. Work towards the yes! Believe in yourself and you can make anything happen.
