monday morning is farm gossip time: when i was placing my order with full belly this morning, i asked them if they've seen a significant increase in their csa program since mp's book new book came out.

they said that they can barely keep up with the requests to join.

hello, people? when he said to support local food networks, he didn't mean the only one out there is his...

om organics has a list of fabulous csa programs in the bay area. i used to have one from riverdoggy, but working in a restaurant, with the late nights and of all the on-the-job eating, i never managed to finish one box before the next one came.

csa boxes are a really economical way to get the right kinds of foods into your diet, and support local organic agriculture. (and krikri, there are a lot of really great ones available in new york, too. look here.)


  1. Never read the book, but I joined Full Belly because they deliver to my work place!!

    I am minutes away from my fresh produce...

  2. There seem to be a lack of CSA programs operating within Orange County. I used the link you had (that extends past the bay area) as well as google search and not much turned up. One was ridiculously expensive and the others didn't seem operational.

    I think I found a guy who from up north who delivers out of his mom's driveway in Costa Mesa(so, no deliveries, you have to pick up on your own). Perhaps this is a good business venture for me to get involved in...try to get a program running to drop off at all the rich people's houses in Newport Coast after they read Pollan's book... :)
