The Ecology Center has announced that registration for the 2019 Farm Share program is now available for the Winter/Spring season. Farm Share is The Ecology Center’s new community supported agriculture (CSA) program, and begins on January 8, 2019 and runs for 16 weeks.
The purchase of a Farm Share offers eight curated boxes of nutritious, locally-grown, organic produce to nourish your family. Farm boxes are prepared bi-weekly in two size options tailored to meet your family’s needs. Farm Share is available for pick up at The Ecology Center Farm Stand or at select drop off locations. Each box is filled with ingredients harvested on-site and foraged within 250 miles of San Juan Capistrano from the Center’s network of organic farmers. Shareholders will also receive recipes from regional chefs, stories from the non-profit’s network of farms and farmers, updates on the organization’s farm expansion, and updates from around the community.
The focus with the Farm Share program is on access and distribution of local, organic ingredients. The Center’s Farm Share is a hub, aggregating the best local, organic produce for members of the community at a fair price for their family and for the farmers whose product brings us closer to an ecological food future. When we support local food grown by local farmers, we make the important connection of valuing our agrarian community. Together, we help build a more connected food community.
