This will be my last Sustainable Saturday post. Starting next Saturday, I will change this feature to "Local Saturday" so I can expand the theme to include anything of local interest, either where I live in upstate New York, or anywhere I happen to be visiting. I hope you enjoy the changes.
From time to time, the "locavore" store I frequent, Old Barn Hollow in Binghamton, New York, has featured greens grown by Finger Lakes Fresh.
This is not your ordinary grower.
Challenge Workforce Solutions, a non-profit whose mission is to provide opportunities for people with challenges - mental, physical, and developmental. Because I have a brother in law with a developmental disability called autism, I always have an interest in these types of products.
Unlike some non profits who serve people with disabilities, Challenge Workforce Solution also works with people who have addictions.
But guess what? We can't patronize non profits "just because". Their product has to be good.
What's my verdict?
Finger Lakes Fresh produce is competitively priced, and it is good! We've had their Boston lettuce...
and their Baby Pak Choy.
Do you have a local grower, or industry, that benefits people with disabilities?
