…Come Grow With Us!

Supporting Monroe Park Grocery Co-op

Flush with green… lettuce that is!

Sometimes the farm is just so good to us that we have more than we need.  On days like these we sell our fresh organic produce at a  discount to the Monroe Park Grocery Co-op.  We are proud to be able to support their mission to provide healthy food in local  food desert areas.

This past week, for example, lettuce grew nearly as fast as we could pick it!  About 20 pounds of lettuce, 10 pounds of strawberries, 5 pounds of snap peas, and some Swiss chard went to the Co-op to feed Monroe co-op members.  We feel blessed that we are able to help, and we are so thankful for those who support us because it allows all of this to happen.

I got the chance to visit the Co-op for a drop off this week.  Here are a couple pictures I took there.
