Communities / by Karie Luidens


Not only have my neighbors next door lent me the beauty of their sunflowers, my neighbors across town have blessed the whole community with a summer’s worth of fresh produce. Earlier this year I signed up to participate in a local farm’s Community Supported Agriculture program, or CSA. From now till the last harvest this fall, the two young farmers who run the place will gather a fresh supply of fruits and vegetables for participants from the community to pick up every Tuesday. This marks the fourth week that I’ve stopped in and loaded up, and so far we’ve feasted on apricots, beets, carrots, onions, garlic, lettuce, kale, chard, sweet peas, radishes, beets, turnips, and more. We’ll see what tomorrow brings!
