“People think it’s possible and are talking more about local
food. The grocery store has approached us for certain produce,
and there are people with a bit of time on their hands,
they’re wanting to grow food for us.
Restaurants are shifting their menus
to reflect seasonal availability. It’s
picking up momentum. I think we’ll see
more growers in this valley pretty soon.
Community-Supported Agriculture Program
Coordinator, Corine
The program’s rising
popularity means
farmers can increase
their yields knowing
there is a pre-paid
market for them.
The program is even
attracting new farmers
to the valley and
inspiring local hobby
farmers to get growing.
