Nutrigreens is a social enterprise that aims to tackle issues of malnutrition in Uganda through the provision of microgreens. Microgreens are harvested after two weeks of growing, containing up to 40 times more nutrients than a typical fully-grown vegetable and require approximately 150 times less water to produce. Thus, microgreens are a sustainable and efficient way of combatting malnutrition due to their small size and volume of resources needed to grow them. Nutrigreens aim to provide education on nutrition and the environment to school children and introduce microgreens to the African market to combat issues of malnutrition that arise from the mainly cereal-based diet.

We found 1/3rd of food goes to waste and this contributes 10% of global greenhouse gasses. It is a specific problem in Nottingham because the council does not provide alternative disposable methods for food that diverts waste away from landfill.

In the long term we would like to market bokashi classes to local youth groups and raise awareness.

As your role you would be required to consult with team members and be flexible to take charge of new developing roles such as marketing. If you are passionate sustainability and maximising the impact of our project, then this is the role for you.
