Activity 7: Join a local CSA

 Taking advantage of living in sunny California, I joined a CSA. A CSA stands for: Community Supported Agriculture. CSAs make it possible to purchase local, organic, seasonal fruits food directly from the farmer.

I have the advantage of living near several different CSA's. Most of them consist of a mixture of fruits and vegetables. However the CSA I joined is geared for kids and only sells fruit; a large variety of delicious fruit. We also get to try fruits that we have never eaten before. For example, the grapes in the picture above are not your ordinary green grapes. When you bite into the grape, it tastes exactly like you are drinking apple cider. My boys and I loved them and are looking forward to what surprises we will find in next week's box.
