Here’s a message from Full Belly Farm. They are working on building up membership for a CSA/veggie box pickup on Precita near Mission. This would be a great way to even further increase our neighborhood’s access to fresh, local, organic produce.
**Fresh, nutritious, organic fruits & vegetables in the Precita Park area of Bernal Heights, San Francisco **
Full Belly Farm is proposing to open a new pick up site in the Precita Park area of Bernal Heights, San Francisco. The boxes would be delivered every Wednesday and contain a selection of organic vegetables and fruits that change seasonally. In order for this program to start, a sufficient number of people need to commit to becoming members in order to satisfy a 30 box per week minimum. We would like to reach this minimum as soon as possible.
The boxes cost $18 each and payments must be made in advance for a minimum of four boxes, total $72.00. You are welcome to skip boxes due to vacations, as long as you notify us 5 days in advance.
We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity for your family to eat some of the best fruits and vegetables in the San Francisco area, to establish a special relationship with the place where your food is grown, to keep your food dollars in the local economy, to reduce your trips to the grocery store and to help protect the environment.

I wonder if we could approach the parks dept and ask them if we could string colored lights on the lamp posts lining Precita Park?
