Each spring, at Riverside Park’s Urban Ecology Center there’s an opportunity to meet local farmers who grow food sustainably and to learn how to buy directly from them.
The annual Local Food and Farmer Open House event has grown since it was first organized ten years ago to help the community connect with local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), farmers. Now over 1,000 people attend each year, the number of CSA farmers attending is over 20. During the rest of the year, community members can visit the Urban Ecology Center and their web site to learn more about CSAs and where to find local farms.
Annie will be making a return presentation on “How to Cook from Your CSA Box.” Come out and learn why this option for buying local food may be good for you and your family.
