Amazing Salad Mix from Three Sisters Farm

Enjoy this photograph taken by Sarah Golden of 25 different greens that are growing right now at Three Sisters Farm in the Bioshelter! Hmm, maybe some of these green are growing outside? Sarah recently spent two weeks volunteering at Three Sisters Farm. One evening when Darrell was mixing the greens to prepare them for sale, Sarah asked him how many different types of greens were in the mix. They decided to count. Darrell started handing leaves to Sarah and rattling off their names. The greens list is below the photo.
Darrell Frey, author of Bioshelter Market Garden: A Permaculture Farm, built his bioshelter many years ago. He teaches the Permaculture Design Course at Phipps Conservatory and at his Farm with Elizabeth Lynch, Juliette Jones and others. He is truly one of the original permaculturists. We are so honored that he and Liz are working with us on our project at 1317 East Carson Street! One day soon, when we open the space, we will sell delicious Three Sisters Farm Amazing Salad Mix! Stay tuned, and please follow this blog and LIKE us on the Schwartz Market Facebook page! Thanks so much Sarah Golden for sharing this photo with us!
