Something new is coming to Campbell and we're not talking about a restaurant.
Boxes of locally grown produce will be delivered to the every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon throughout September as part of a new pilot program by the Community-Supported Agriculture farms and the city of Campbell.
The program is funded through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is called “Orchard City Organics.”
Employees and residents who purchase a “share” or membership fee, ranging between $72 and $104, in the harvest of the CSA Farm will receive a box of fresh fruits and vegetables, (along with delicious recipes and nutrition tips), delivered to the community center each week.
“The City of Campbell is thrilled to be able to offer this CSA pilot program for our community,” says Recreation and Community Services Director Cynthia Bojorquez. “Not only is it a great way to promote health and wellness by improving access to fresh, locally grown produce, but it also pays tribute to Campbell’s strong agricultural history and our continued efforts to be good stewards of our environmental resources.”
Deliveries will be made in the community center parking lot next to the skate park on the following days and times:
- From High Ground Organics: 3:00-6:00 p.m. on September 5, 12, 19 and 26
- From TIMptations: 4:00-7:00 p.m. on September 6, 13, 20 and 27
