Permaculture at it's best! By: Kristin Smith (Nov 15, 2010)
I had first ran into Susana's Organics at the Berea FMKT and filled my sack full of garlic, potatoes, blackberries and even tried her Chamomile tea. The blackberries never quite made it into a cobbler from being so scrumptious! All of her food was so fresh and full of flavor! I was so interested in how they packed that flavor...soo
I decided to go find out! I took a group of Master Gardeners to Salamander Springs Farm this past summer and was astonished at the amount of produce they were harvesting on a hillside! Susana and her gang were extremely welcoming to our group and gave us a fabulous tour and demonstration of permaculture. I had never seen such tall corn in my life! Many of us in the group had been traditional farmers of tilling and synthetic sprays but after seeing her methods we were all sold!
