I’ve got a lovely bunch of bunches! White carrots, cauliflower and celery were just a few of the good things at CSA this week.
The scallions, spinach, kale, broccoli rabe and mixed greens contributed their own shades of green to the mix, along with tangelos, tangerines and blood oranges.
The carrot rainbow of orange, purple, red and now white carrots over the past several weeks has been a delight. The mushrooms and beets from weeks prior have been some of the most flavorful I have ever had.
Over the past 3 months I have been volunteering for CSA California, running a pickup location in North Hollywood. It has been a fantastic experience. Perhaps the best part has been sharing the fruit and veggies with others and having them get excited and be eager to participate in helping out at CSA too. Of course, it’s a joy to see people excited for the new assortment when they come to pick up and curious about new fruits and veggies.
CSA (Community Sustainable Agriculture) California operates throughout Los Angeles and offers pickup locations throughout the city as well as delivery options. Find out more and sign up at CSACalifornia.org.
