Event Details

Let's eat healthy and well! UCPath Center is bringing local farmers Old Grove Orange to present "UCPath Farmshare": you can get locally grown, virtually all organic, truly fresh fruits and veggies direct from our neighborhood farmers with convenient pickup right at work on Thursdays

What is a farmshare? It's when you join a farm and each week receive a selection of fresh local fruits and vegetables.  BYOB - Bring your own bag - preferably reusable.  Eat well, save our local open space, keep farmers in our neighborhoods, stay healthy!  This Fall we'll be experience our local hot-to-cool season bounty: beets, carrots, colorful peppers, apples, baby crab apples, winter squash, fuyu persimmons... Yummy!

When Does It Start?  Join us to taste how this works for a ten-week season, starting October 13th th when our first baskets will be delivered right to UCPath Center and finishing up on Dec 15th.  Convenient!  You can sign up and pay right here.

What Do I Get?  There are two options: Full shares (good for a family of four) and Medium shares (good for singles and couples).  Full shares generally have each week five different kinds of fruits, five different kinds of veggies, and an herb.  Medium shares will have half counts on the fruits, and half counts on four of the veggies.   Want to see what's in our shares?  Visit our facebook site where you can look back on our weekly postings (and meet our farmers): https://www.facebook.com/oldgrovefarmshare

How Much Does It Cost? The full-share costs $28/wk, while the medium share costs $18/wk.  To make it easier on cash flow, you can join five weeks at a time instead of for the whole ten weeks in one block.  Just sign up now for the first five, and we'll remind you when it's time to renew.

Use It Or Lose It! Unlike the summer season, no skip weeks this time around...  So if you can't make it to pick up, send a substitute in your place.  If this just can't be arranged, don't worry, unclaimed shares don't go to waste - any leftovers go to the needy.  No need to feel guilty - that share is going to a good place!

Pickups are weekly starting on October 13th!

Organizer

Old Grove Farmshare

Old Grove Farmshare is a small group of LA Basin farmers dedicated to rebuilding a values-driven local food system by collaborating with our community's like-minded eaters.  We believe our food should be:

  • Delicious - let's focus on taste and variety, not durability or plastic appearance
  • Healthy - Let's eat organic as much as we can, and encourage more local farmers to grow organic
  • Local - By eating local, lets create jobs in our communities, preserve our open green space, continue our rich agricultural heritage, and keep people who know how to grow food in our community
  • Fair - Let's grow food for all our community, not just for the elite, and let's give our farmworkers a living wage, stable jobs, and a fair workplace
  • Humane - Let's grow sustainably, making our soil richer year after year instead of despoiling it

We can take our food future into our own hands!  Join us and let's eat together in abundance and health!
