This Week’s Oppenheimer Harvest

Because a portion of the cost of each CSA share is earmarked for Oppenheimer Community Kitchen harvests, we like to keep y’all updated on what their share looks like.

Here’s this week’s harvest, featuring beautiful Copia tomatoes, Red Ace beets, Chesnok Red garlic, Redbor kale and sweet Sierra Blanca onions. These veggies will help make a beautiful, nutritious soup!

Thanks to all of our shareholders for helping make this harvest possible

Nutrients and Happiness in the Community

Imagine this:

The nutrients and energy captured in these beautiful plants are about to be distributed throughout the community by the hands of skillful chefs and eager mouths, making each one who shares the meal just a little bit healthier and happier. But these aren’t the only beneficiaries in this network. The growers were enriched by witnessing the soil, water, air and sunlight interact with a seed, a seedling, a little plant and the mature flora. The neighbourhood in which the plants grew also took part in the experience, watching the transformation from lawn to harvest, with anticipation and fascination.

Oppenheimer Community Kitchen + Veggie Updates

We are continuing our relationship this season with the fine folks at Oppenheimer Park Community Kitchen (one of the Downtown Eastside Community Kitchens). They make a delicious batch of soup each week with our veggies.

Good use of vertical space
