Week of January 17th

If you didn’t have a chance to pick up your share last week at the farm you can be sure it was donated to Veggie Rescue and given to those who need it most. I’ve raided our hard squash stores and given as much as possible to the Food Shelter. Helping our community in times like these is extremely important to me.
I’m very happy to be stuffing these CSA boxes with tomatoes in January. A little ray of sunshine in the share. While we don’t have access to any of our usual produce south of Santa Barbara, we are snacking on the local tangerines like crazy.
We are planning on delivering to all of our drop off spots this week. Enjoy! With the 101 closed, our local produce is more important than ever. And supporting our local farms will ensure that we can continue making it available for our community.

Week of January 10th

We had a successful drop at the food bank last Wednesday. We were able to donate over 30 boxes full of fresh produce to be distributed throughout the community. And we aren’t stopping there. This week we are taking another 500 lbs of butternut squash and making sure that no one in the community goes hungry. Thanks a million for supporting our cause. It’s through our CSA program that’s made most of this possible. Hoorah!
As we start off a New Year with new resolutions, I like to think our CSA program fills a few of them in my book. Live as healthy and vibrant as possible (aka eat more vegetables) and treat the earth with the utmost respect. Our CSA program strives to use as little plastic as possible and with our reusable boxes, we are reducing waste to a minimum. Consider making a compost pile or get a few chickens to eat your food scraps (if you have enough room), or find a composting program near you. Food scraps thrown away in America contribute to an astounding amount to our landfills. What are your New Years resolutions?
Do you know someone who is trying to connect with better food? We offer gift certificates starting at as little as 2 weeks. And with every 6 week subscription we will give you a free box of vegetables too! Contact me for more information.
