Salt Sisters founder Colleen Francke harvesting one of the first kelp crops ever grown in Casco Bay, Maine.
Salt sisters is the life blood of summit point seafood...
"Sea Farming" has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl playing on the sandbars of Cape Cod. It wasn't until 2016 when I made the decision to enter into recovery, that my dreams became reality.
I began building the Summit Point Farm on paper, searching for a perfect location in Casco Bay, and working on pages of lease requirements for the State of Maine. I was moving forward. I was making my dreams come true... Something wasn't right... The project felt selfish, empty, and shallow.
That's when I realized the project's true purpose. SALT SISTERS was my chance to give back to the women in recovery who had given so freely to me. After all, none of this was possible without them.
The farm was to be a place for women in recovery to play, work, and heal! It was to be a place to get your hands dirty, plant something, watch it grow, and grow alongside what was planted. It was the only thing that made sense.
SALT SISTERS Kelp Farm is a project to help women in recovery connect with themselves and their inner strength through a connection with nature. Please like, share, and donate to this campaign. Because these women are worth way more than their salt!
