Editorial Reviews

New York Post - Susan Rogers Giddins
"Mrs. Courter, who has become a sort of pied piper of sprouting, devised a portable system for a friend going camping on the Appalachian trail."
The Pittsburgh Press - Sylvia Sach
"Beansprouting has everything going for it. It's simple, fast, pro-ecology, pro-nutrition, pro-gourmet. What more could you ask?"
