It’s not too late to sign up for fresh organic produce delivered to L&C!
May 22, 2012
This week, Lewis & Clark received its first installment of boxed organic produce from Grow Portland, an organization dedicated to expanding urban gardening and agriculture in the vicinity. Specifically, the box includes a variety of red leaf lettuce, spinach, radishes, green onions, leaks, and turnips, that are fresh from Grow Portland’s community gardens. Harvest vegetables will vary each month as new crops come in.
A basic package for 14 weeks is a total of $325, or roughly 23 dollars a week.

Grow Portland is part of the Portland Growers Alliance which works with local farmers in the Portland area, who offer a certain number of “shares” of their produce during each growing season. Consumers then purchase a share, and in return, receive a fresh box of vegetables, fruit, or other farm products. The transaction is mutually beneficial. Farmers are given time to advertise early before their long days in the field begin, and consumers receive fresh produce, rich in vitamins and flavor.
