To say the gardens at Sage Mind Homestead are impressive would be an understatement. This garden is just 30’ by 60’, a total of 1800 square feet, and grows 1200 plants! Herbs grown include parsley and mint. Vegetables and leafy greens such as chard, arugula, and squash are grown in the garden as well. Take note of the two irrigation tubes running along the top of the towers. One delivers nutrient rich solution to each tower, which irrigates plant roots and is returned to a holding tank for re-use. The other has misting heads installed in the tube to mist foliage on hot days in the Texas heat.
