Mighty & Tiny: Microgreens from Green Girl Produce

Green Girl Produce was founded in 2012 by Emma Self Treadwell, and she continues to be the President, CEO, and
micro-wizard in the company. She saw a need for locally-produced microgreens, and she began growing “micros”
in the parking lot of Sweet Grass/Next Door, with the support and encouragement from Chef Ryan Trimm
(member of Across the Board Restaurant Group) where she was working at the time. She moved the operation
to a corner office in the Emerge Memphis building while she perfected her system and experimented with the
tiny plants. With the move inside, Green Girl became Tennessee’s first vertical indoor vertical farm. Today, the
company has expanded by adding more staff and moving into a larger (and spotlessly clean) warehouse space,
owned by the other members within the Across The Board restaurant group, Craig Blondis and Roger Sapp.
Jennifer Payne joined her last year, and together they are working to grow the company along with microgreens.
“I am the ‘how,’” Jennifer said, “and Emma is the ‘wow!’”
