Équiterre- Organic food basket season is coming

Community Supported Agriculture is an excellent way to get to know your food both in the context of receiving tasty food baskets as well as being able to help out on the farm itself or stopping in to hang out and dig in the soil.

With roughly 77 farms that sell their organic veggies and meats to consumers, roughly 7,500 applications for weekly food baskets resulting in over 20,000 happy fully bellies here in Quebec.

    Did you get a chance to check out the Expo Manger Santé?

    This is the second year that I’ve gone to it, and it’s interesting to see what locals are trying to do with organic products in the marketplace.

    I keep thinking I’m going to sign up for one of these food baskets, but I’m worried that as a single person I’m going to end up wasting too much.

    Split if with a friend, but be prepared for weeks were you’ll have what seems like 18 pounds of radishes and 3 kilos of leeks… right around the time you’re getting sick of the both. Don’t get me wrong, these things are really nice mid-season, but take some getting used to around the beginning and end (and that “getting used” to can be a good thing).
