I love Radical Root!
By: Emma Tai (Sep 4, 2012)
This is my third year with the Radical Root CSA and I've been really happy with the experience.
My partner and I split the box with another couple and it is just enough veggies to get us through the week. Alex and Alison are extremely friendly, helpful and accessible and do a great job of putting together community events for CSA subscribers (like an annual harvest potluck), weekly emails with suggested recipes and updates from the farm, and ongoing volunteer opportunities. That extra effort really makes us feel like we are a part of the farm community--even though we almost exclusively just eat the fruits of their labor :)
The vegetables themselves are delicious and come in great and exciting varieties. I've learned how to prepare lots of new vegetables and Alex and Alison are very receptive to feedback from year to year (and even mid-season) about what they should grow more or less of.
Being a CSA member also gets you a great discount on the produce at their stand, which is terrific for buying starts for your own garden in the spring and extra tomatoes in the late summer.
