Sophie and Ida are volunteer patchwork farmers up in the grounds of The Castle in Stoke Newington.  They grow salad for the Growing Communities veg box scheme, providing a flavoursome, fragrant bag of leaves that throws ordinary supermarket salad into the tasteless, soggy shade.

This is part of a personal project I am undertaking about food growing in Hackney.  If you know of any great urban food growing projects in Hackney that wouldn’t mind a punchy photograph taken of it, drop me a line.
