A takeout salad sold by various “natural” vendors around town may seem like the healthiest lunch option. However, have you considered growing your own?
While it may seem like an intimidating task, studies have shown that you will receive the most nutrients from seasonal and fresh produce, grown in your own backyard.
Besides, even if you don’t have a green thumb, our “Grow Fresh Salad” kits make it foolproof for you to start your first garden.
It's easy because we can deliver to you all the components you need to succeed at growing and making your own salads. We can even setup your instant container garden, if you live in the Mid-Atlantic, or ship the components to you if you don't.
It's inexpensive because you don't need a large garden and heavy equipment to make it happen -- just setup your own containers with our growing mix (or buy some containers from the store or from us) and plant our starter salad plants, using only your fingers. All you add is water. The only equipment you need is a pair of scissors to cut the outer leaves of the plants.
It's fun because you get outdoors and get to watch your garden grow, and enjoy the experience with your family, neighbors and friends. And you can enjoy making a salad every day, adding other ingredients in your fridge to take your salad from being a sideshow to the center of your meal. We help schools setup salad gardens, and the students love seeing how it grows and harvesting and eating their greens!
It's convenient because it takes only a few minutes to harvest leaves each day, and your garden provides super-fresh, organic greens that are succulent and crisp harvested at the peak of freshness. You can't find greens like these in the store, where greens are either so mature they are tough and old, or so young they are baby leaves and don't have the right crisp texture.
It's going to support your health because your new salad greens will contain a wide variety of nutrients including minerals from our special rock powder mixture, which is why your greens will taste so fresh and crisp.
We offer an array of seasonal starter plants, focused on salad making. We emphasize lettuce, kale, chard and mustard greens. And then we provide more exotic greens and vegetables that you may want to add for extra nutrition and to add new and interesting flavors. Enjoy!
