Salamander Springs Farm


| 5/14/2014 9:14:00 AM



Nestled above an overgrown ridge-top meadow in the Appalachian Mountains, Salamander Springs Farm is run by proud farmer Susana Lein: it is a permaculture farm, homestead and “food forest” where living, healthy soil is considered the most important resource.

Working closely with her local farmers’ markets, town stores, and CSA members, Susana grows a variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, mushrooms and nut trees. All food is grown organically, in the traditional sense, using permaculture and biodynamic practices.

Susana is a vital part of Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms, USA, a non-profit organization dedicated to linking host farmers across the United States to those with an interest in organic farming and gardening.

WWOOF-USA currently has over 1,900 organic farmers across the country who, like Susana, welcome members (more commonly referred to as WWOOFers) onto their land to learn about farming by getting their hands in the dirt. It is an educational and cultural exchange that surpasses what can be learned in any textbook.



Susana’s WWOOFers and apprentices, who often stay for an entire growing season, learn extensively about cycling local resources and energy, homesteading from the ground up, and practicing permaculture principles to achieve sustainable housing, food production and local economic systems.
