Spaces are available now for new shareholders to sign up for round 5 of CSA pick-ups in Silver Lake. Round 5 just started on Friday August 6. It is not too late to sign up.

There are three local farmers involved: John Sweredoski grows all sorts of vegetables and greens, which he is famous for, in Bell Gardens. You might know him from the Echo Park Farmers' Market. He is pesticide-free. John also supplies fruit - mostly citrus and avocados.
Craig Underwood in Moorpark: We just started with Underwood and so far they've produced some amazing melons, heirloom tomatoes and radishes (see previous blog posts for the full list)
Silver Lake Farms: I supply the CSA with micro-greens grown by Rachel Klein and Bruce Chan, who happens to be a shareholder also.
All the produce is freshly picked for CSA pick-ups on Fridays.
Fresh local bread is also available, baked by a local artisanal baker on Friday mornings. Please contact me for more details. It's a separate program.
Shoot me an email at email@example.com if you have any questions and would like to sign up.
Thank you !!
