March 2020, Week 3

March 2020, Week 3

This summer, we're looking forward to connecting you even more deeply with the work we do on the land. While some of that work is food, it runs much deeper than that. It's about the spirit of place, and about understanding - the way that we understand ourselves and each other. The way that we understand how we fit into the broader systems at play. The way all the pieces fit together, from the smallest micro-organisms that make the soil hospitable to the largest trees that live in and on top of it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We're all part of it. We're all fitting pieces together, one at a time. One day at a time. One place at a time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just that.⠀

Beet greens can be eaten raw and are great for juicing. They can also be added to smoothies just like you would add spinach or kale. Beet greens can be sauteed, steamed or braised in oil with garlic, onion, and spices and served as a side dish. They also make a great addition to soups and stews.
