Chris' Corner: Harvest Food Share Program

Harvest Food Share Program

Don't grow your own fruits and vegetables?

Would you like the opportunity to buy locally grown food, produced using environmentally friendly methods by socially responsible farmers?

Are you concerned about reducing your "carbon footprint" by eliminating the long distances your food has to be transported?

Do you prefer food rich in nutrition and picked ripe?

We participate in a CSA program in our area.  Every week we get a fresh box of seasonal veggies and once a month we pick up a mixed organic meat box at our local year round farmers market.

Good morning, Chris. I grow my own tomatoes, squash and summer veggies. The rest I purchase from the local farmer's markets...

Cindy, I have not done this before, but it seems like a great idea.  We are investigating it.

Michael, I am going to grow vegetables and some fruit this year, and try to buy the rest from local farmer's markets, taking another page from your book =)

We never knew this Chris, and we drive by there a lot! ;)

That sounds like the next best thing to being able to grow your own vegetables Chris. I like the idea of supporting local businesses that are concerned with the environment.
