In celebration of our beautiful Earth, let’s talk about the important people that use the Earth’s bounty to nourish us all, our local farmers! Now a days you can get the most bang for your buck by participating in CSA’s or Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA box is a share of crops provided by you local farmer. Here are some of the top reasons to join in your local CSA program.
Support a local farmer who is part of the regional economy.
Have access to fresh, local food that has been grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.
Support farms that are growing food sustainably.
Get more in touch with seasonality of produce and to make a connection to food and the land.
Have access to a variety of vegetables that they may not be able to find in the neighborhood stores.
I love the variety of produce my local CSA provides. It is like a little surprise each month. I have also been extremely pleased with Specialty Produce‘s farmer market bags. Their bags contain produce from sustainable california farms that they have developed close and long standing relationships with. They specifically support farms that grow responsibly and are environmentally aware.
So today, as we celebrate our beautiful Earth, go out and join your local CSA. Nothing is better than fresh and healthy produce grown locally and responsibly. It’s good for your body and good for the planet, what more could you ask for?
In health and love,
