Fresh Green Delivered

Did you know the average grocery produce item travels over 1500 miles to get to the store? Often that means it gets picked before it is ripened, losing out on nutrients it would get those last weeks on the vine or plant. There is a better way...the CSA. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, a group of people who support local famers by buying their produce directly or through a local network. My family gets a weekly bin of organic vegetables from a CSA called Fresh Harvest. The variety of veggies in the bin comes primarily from organic farms nearby. This benefits us by providing fresh organic produce, but also reduces food-transit emissions and supports the local economy and local farmers. In this video, Philip Knight of Fresh Harvest discusses the purpose and the heart of their company.
