Tanaka Farms Tour April 4

Iris' school participates in the Tanaka Farms CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. You can make reservations for a farm tour most times of the year, but
CSA day will take place on April 4, 2009. Don’t miss out on this great day. We will have two times. 10am or 1pm.

RSVP to Tanakafarmscsa@aol.com.

Let us know how many people in your family will be attending.
There is no charge to attend for those families that are participating in the CSA program.
We really enjoyed our first CSA box. It held two large containers of organic strawberries, picked that morning. Iris polished off half of them in the first two nights. Breathing Treatment dipped them in chocolate. We ate them plain.

Iris actually ate lettuce! We found that the spinach, lettuce and radishes lacked the bitterness of supermarket produce. We don't know why, but we are happy about that.

We look forward to our second box this afternoon. See me if you want a form to sign up for April deliveries.

I wrote about this CSA program with site-specific info in CSA & Schools. Tanaka Farms' website has information about the CSA program and CSA newsletters with info about the farm and recipes.
