Place the shredded kale in a bowl, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, some of the tahini dressing, and a pinch of salt, and toss to coat.
Use a small knife to score the pomegranate skin around the middle, without cutting into the seeds. Gently tear in half. Hold each half over a medium bowl and tap with a wooden spoon to release the seeds. Discard the skin and white pith and set the seeds aside. Pick a handful of mint leaves and toss the stems.
In a frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the farro and stir to warm through, about 3 minutes. Transfer the farro to bowls and set aside and keep warm.
Return the pan to the heat, and add another 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the winter squash and stir until warmed through and crispy, 3 minutes. Add the winter squash to the bowls.
To finish the grain bowls, top with a pile of the dressed kale, and sprinkle with the feta, toasted seeds, and pomegranate seeds. Scatter with the mint leaves and serve warm.
