In recent years, the Community Supported Agriculture Program has been introducing its members to some of SLO Countyâ€™s finest fruits and vegetables and the small county farms that produce them. As a member, you will savor a bounty not found in the local markets. Fresh fruit and vegetable lovers can sign up to receive a weekly full share harvest box, enough vegetables for four to five people, or a half share harvest box that feeds two to three people. Each week, produce in the box varies, depending on the current harvest. Locally grown crops are fresher than those found on grocery store shelves, and buying directly from SLO County farmers benefits the local economy. The 22-to-30 week season begins in April. Members also receive a monthly newsletter with recipes and farm related information. For more info call Sales and Marketing Supervisor Elaine Genasci at 756-6130.
