I am an exuberant member of The Growing Experience in Long Beach, California.
I am so happy to have a *local* CSA where I get my fruits and vegetables! I know that my food has a tiny carbon footprint, as compared to the produce that people buy in supermarkets.... [more]
We love the Growing Experience. First of all, a fully functioning farm with chickens and a fish farm in the middle of a housing project??? Come one people, this is the future, and it's so cool:-) Jimmy and his small staff do an amazing job bringing us incredibly fresh and delicous produce all year long.... [more]
