This past January California saw its third consecutive year of drought-its worst on record. The snow pack in the mountains is just 15 percent of normal for Feburary. Bad news for the farmers and ranchers on the West Coast may also mean bad news for the rest of the country, as Californians grow nearly half of all U.S. farmed fruits, vegetable and nuts. Prices are expected to increase as we may need to import this produce from other countries.
The good news is our food co-op is on the east coast, and local, while St. Rose’s garden is as local as it gets, right on campus. Our CSA members don’t need to tighten their wallets or compromise a healthy meal.
Want fresh, local, organic produce for a fraction of what it costs at Whole Foods?
