...April's greenVALENTINE challenge (OOPS THIS IS A LITTLE LATE)!

April's greenVALENTINE Challenge:

Consider shopping LOCAL for produce and so much more at your neighborhood farmers markets and/or join a CSA program!

The food is fresh, local, often organic, uses less resources to produce and to transport....I could go on and on! We were part of a CSA membership program in Fresno for a while and we loved it.  Every week it was like a treasure hunt discovering what local & seasonal items we would be getting.  Each box would evoke smells and flavors of that season and taste incredibly fresh...yum! There are dozens of reasons to shop local farmers markets & CSA's but don't just take my word for it.

Why Everyone Should Shop Farmer's Markets

By the way, in case you were wondering...CSA stands for Community Supported AgricultureBasically you pay a regular fee and pick up a box of their freshest produce weekly or monthly...it is fun & easy way to stay healthy while supporting local farmers!  I found this definition from thefreedictionary.com: A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farming operation where the growers and consumers share the risks and benefits of food production. They usually consist of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables and fruit, in a vegetable box scheme, and sometimes includes dairy products and meat. 

One more thing...I've been so busy that blogging has been impossible...but as soon as i can make it more of a priority i will.
Peace out for now...xoxo
