We’ve got a special offer for all newsletter subscribers this week at the market. The SIU Sustainable Farm has grown 14-16 different varieties of Asian greens as a trial for an Illinois Specialty Crop grant program. SIU Sustainable Farm hopes that this grant will help these Asian greens become more common at farmers markets and for customers to become more comfortable with incorporating them into their everyday cooking. They plan to have several of these greens available throughout the growing season. For more information about Asian Greens or this study, please contact April Vigardt firstname.lastname@example.org.
