Live Earth Farm’s regular season starts April

Ever since reading both of Michael Pollan’s books, The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food, I’ve been trying to look for ways to eat healthier. One of the steps I took last year was to support Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and signed up for Live Earth Farm’s regular season.

Live Earth Farm is small, family-own farm that is located in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

As a member, I’ll be picking up vegetables and fruits grown organically and locally on a weekly basis as of April this year. I am looking forward to the variety in produce and the challenges I am sure I will face figuring out recipes and ways to inject even more vegetables into our diet.

According to the schedule posted on Live Earth Farm’s website, for the month of April, I should be expecting strawberries, citrus, arugula, beets, bok choi, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, garlic, leeks, spinach, turnips…and much more.

The cost is $29/week for the small share. This season I did not choose any of the options such as extra fruit, eggs or bread as I wanted to try the basic program to see how I like it.

It will be an exciting adventure and I’ll keep you updated on my experience.
