I'll be sending out the Market News every week throughout the season. You will learn about and get to know the variety of factors that affect how, when and how much of a certain vegetable we grow. From weather patterns and insect migrations, to seed availability and our local youth programs, the factors are many and are often interconnected. For now, we'll start with a little FAQ and answers...


FAQ

Is the produce organic?

The Food Project is not certified organic. We use organic practices and work toward sustainable agriculture, trying to focus on soil health and using only organically approved fertilizers and pesticides. We choose not to certify for many reasons: The cost and paper work entailed with USDA organic certification would take up staff time and resources that can go to our other programs. Our members and customers have direct relationships with us and don’t need a label to tell them what they can learn by asking us in person about our farming methods. Please ask one of your farmers if you’d like to further discuss our growing methods.

Is the produce washed?

We dunk our vegetables in tubs of cool well water to hydrate them and remove grit from the field so that they can stay fresh until you retrieve them. They may require more careful washing when you return home.
