Description

Locally grown in Hendon Regenerative Culture Garden in Sunderland.

The bag contains a mixture of salad varieties that may include Grenoble red, Ruffled Soul, Mustard, Little Gem Lettuce, Spinach and other varieties. Your leaves will be wet as Allan uses a specific method to keep the salad as fresh as possible. This salad may well keep longer than regular salad due to the close proximity of the garden. Local food at its best!

No sprays or chemicals have been used. The HRCG follows the principles of Permaculture and uses organic methods, although it has not been certified as such.

Be aware, this comes in a plastic bag. Please reuse.

Wash before eating.

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.
