ForageSF has developed a new kind of CSA, offering local and wild foods to San Francisco residents.
This week, we are bringing you the latest urban agriculture related news mixed with lots of good-to-know information and unique projects that are happening across the United States. Feel free to share your thoughts and links to your favorite urban agriculture resources, and don't forget to tell us about the urban farming projects in your town!
Currently on a mini-hiatus from New York, I’m enjoying a few beautiful weeks in San Francisco. Just in time for Urban Ag Week, I've been inspired by the thriving urban agriculture movement working it’s way through the Bay Area.
The brainchild of Iso Rabins, ForageSF began in 2008 with the goal to connect Bay Area residents with the bounty of wild food growing just outside their doors.
ForageSF sustainably harvests all their goods and directly pays all foragers 50% of the cost for the products they pick and deliver. Food is delivered on a monthly basis, and includes a variety of products, from wild mushrooms to acorn flour. ForageSF’s philosophy maintains a commitment to the environment and the local community by providing fresh foods and viable income for individuals motivated to forage.
If you live in the Bay Area and want to learn how to forage, check out one of ForageSF’s Wild Food Walks.
