In today's show, Laura Masterson from 47th Ave Farm and I talk about soil health, how CSA programs connect community members, and the wonderful possibilities of winter vegetable farming in Portland. 47th Ave Farm feeds over 400 families / year with their summer and winter vegetable CSA programs.
What does Laura think is the ONE thing you can do to improve your eating or food purchasing habits to benefit their health, the environment, and our community? It may be an easy one to guess :) Join your local CSA. She loves hearing stories of CSA members whose kids learn to like vegetables, who need to switch up from a half share to a full share, and all sorts of other ways these programs change members' health and connection to food.
You can find the 47th Ave Farm CSA program registration here - they offer pickups in the Woodstock neighborhood in SE Portland and in Lake Oswego. They are also on Facebook and Instagram. Laura graciously asked me to share this for folks who can't make it to these pickup sites: the Portland CSA Coalition is a resource to find all the CSA programs with pickups near you.
