Wasatch Front locals only: I think it’s very exciting that http://www.bellorganic.com/csa.php is now offering shares in its Community Supported Agriculture co-op! HURRY, because they’ll be selling only through May 15, and I think they have only about a dozen shares left. What a CSA co-op is: you buy a share and pick up once a week, whatever their harvest is. You end up getting tons of organic produce for a small fraction of what you’d pay in the store, AND you’re supporting local, organic growers (minimal use of fossil fuels, very “green”). The West coast has enjoyed tons of CSAs for years.
If you want to post as a reply to this blog looking for people who want to share driving reponsibilities, go ahead. I suggest you have four people with a 1/2 share or 1 share each, driving to Draper or Salt Lake once a week.
Beans, beets, broccoli raab, cabbage, carrots, celery, radicchio, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, arugula, asian greens, mache, mustard greens, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, garlic, shallots, onions, heirloom tomatoes, lettuce, melons, peas, peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, radishes, spinach, summer squash, winter squash, swiss chard, apples, peaches, plums.
