Another delicious reason to do Community Supported Agriculture / Farm Shares

on October 10, 2017 in Nature

I realized another delicious reason to join a CSA, which stands for Community Supported Agriculture, which means a deal where you pay a farm a flat annual fee in return for a delivery each week of that week’s produce. I’ve written about the structure before and my CSA’s farm, Stoneledge Farm. Visiting it is one of my summers’ highlights. The benefit The farm succeeds when more people want to subscribe.[…] Keep reading →

Farm fresh vegetables

on June 17, 2016 in Fitness, Nature, Visualization

I meant to post about the vegetables I got each week from my farm share deal (called Community Supported Agriculture or CSA). The farm drops off its vegetables to a place a few blocks away and everyone picks up their share within a three-hour time slot. The summer/fall one I do delivers food twenty-four weeks. The winter/spring one delivers less often. This year’s started last week, so the fresh vegetables[…] Keep reading →

The farm where most of my food this summer came from

on September 14, 2015 in Entrepreneurship, Fitness, Nature

Almost anyone who talked to me over the summer heard about how much I love the vegetables I’ve been getting through what they call Community Supported Agriculture. You pay a farm at the beginning of the season, then when the plants start growing, each week they deliver what’s ready that week. I go to a drop-off location a few blocks from my home and pick up my share. Once a[…] Keep reading →

A path to happiness

on September 25, 2017 in Awareness, Nature, Tips

Get some fresh fruits, vegetable, and other ingredients. Make a delicious meal. Invite some friends over to enjoy it with you. Try to be unhappy then. It’s hard. If you prepare well, impossible. Creating that environment makes you happy. You might say, it’s only for the moment, or not true happiness. I suggest instead of evaluating it, figuring out how to extend it to the rest of your life. That’s[…] Keep reading →

Eating healthy is not more expensive. Not knowing how to cook is expensive.

on September 22, 2017 in Fitness, Nature

Search online which is more expensive between healthy and unhealthy food and you’ll find many posts in both directions. In my experience, buying fresh produce in season is cheaper than any buying practice I’ve had. Same with buying dried legumes like beans, lentils, and split peas. In-season produce tastes the most delicious, which is my most important measure of food. Fruits and vegetables are most plentiful in season, so farmers[…] Keep reading →

Food comes from dirt, not plastic bags, boxes, and bottles.

on September 4, 2017 in Nature

In my 20s and 30s, in Manhattan, I went to the latest gallery openings and clubs. I even showed my art there and hung out with world-famous DJs. I considered what I did sophisticated and valuable. Maybe because I’m older, maybe because I’m wiser, a main highlight of me summer these days is visiting the farm where my farm-share food comes from. I ate tons of tomatilloes and cherry tomatoes[…] Keep reading →

Avoiding food packaging

on August 23, 2017 in

In the fall of 2014, I noticed a lot of my garbage came from food packaging. I don’t like when people pollute my world, so I try to avoid polluting theirs. I thought of an experiment: to try to go one week without buying any food where I’d have to throw away food packaging. For six months I planned and thought about doing it until one day I realized all[…] Keep reading →
