Whoever said you had to eat all your fruits and veggies
didn't know how much fun ~ and productive ~ it can be
to play with your food instead!

Add a twist to recipes shared with CSA members and newsletters subscribers
by adding arts & crafts and skin care recipes so unused produce doesn't have to be thrown out.
Because some people leave CSA's because their weekly shares are too much ~ this just might be
a value-added turning point to keep customers coming back to you for more.

Please add your own cool ideas!
