Farm Fresh to You

Farm Fresh

Farm Fresh

I recently join Farm Fresh to You a Davis, CA based CSA. On Fridays they deliver, right to my door here in Forestville, a mixed box of fruits and vegetables for just over $30. It’s a great value considering the quantity and the quality has been consistently high.

As people are becoming increasingly interested about where their food comes from and how it was grown, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is becoming a popular alternative for getting high quality food from a trusted local farm.

By joining Farm Fresh To You, families are connecting directly to the Capay Organic farm, and are receiving regular deliveries of nutrient rich, mouth watering, organic produce delivered directly to their home or office.

Farm Fresh now has a referral program so you can save $10 off your first order (I get $25 in food credit). There’s no obligation to order again, but you’ll want to.

Green the Sporting Green

San Francisco Giants - Greening MLB

San Francisco Giants - Greening MLBThere’s a lot of energy and (typically) waste at college and professional sporting events, but a new trend in professional sports is to be more environmentally conscious. Just like other business sectors it’s becoming obvious in sports that the benefits are robust, from saving thousands of dollars on energy, waste, and water bills to creating new sponsorship opportunities and enhancing brand value with corporate social responsibility in addition to the feel good environmental benefits for fans, employees and shareholders.

According the NRDC website,

They’ve (professional sports) teamed up with NRDC to examine everything ranging from their purchasing decisions to transportation choices, energy use, and waste management policies, looking for ways to reduce their environmental impact. And they’re encouraging fans to do the same online and in their stadiums and arenas.

NCAA Sports are getting behind green events and the NRDC is also participating in the Green Sports Alliance, a forward looking alliance of Professional Sports Franchises committed to improving their environmental performance.
