With the UFI FarmShare you will experience new foods and cooking ideas and methods. You will also meet new people with like-minded beliefs. Let’s not forget a multiple Urban Farming Institute volunteers.
Yes, there’s also the opportunity for you to be more involved, like organizing a group potluck, local market festivals. These are unique advantages if you’re interested in being more active in a good food cause, and you’ll get to chat with your neighbors and meet many of them during pick-up times.
Do you delight in coming across heirloom produce that you never even knew existed? Do you want to brag about your garlic scapes, flowering spring greens, and other exotica that you can’t really find in conventional grocery stores?
Then joining a CSA and siding with a small, unique farm that typically serves them is just right for you! You won’t always know what foods the season will bring you, and that’s exciting, especially when something that you might never have been compelled to buy before becomes a new favorite in your kitchen. It happens all the time.
Most importantly, your help, participation, and proceeds thur the UFI FarmShare CSA is used to advance the educational outreach of your institute.
