Want fresh vegetables?  Now you can pick up garden-fresh produce in El Cajon or City Heights—or have it delivered directly to your home, all while helping local refugees from war-torn nations.

To get started, just join the International Rescue Committee’s community supported agriculture (CSA) program for this summer season.  Participants will receive a colorful share of farm-fresh and local vegetables grown by refugee farmers participating in IRC’s sustainable agriculture program.

Cost per week is only $16 (half share) or $21.50 (full share). Expect around 8 or 12 items each week, including terrific tomatoes, excellent eggplant, scrumptious summer squash, juicy watermelons and cantaloupe, beautiful beets, and much more.

The harvest starts June 20. A minimum of six participants is needed for home delivery.

For all the details and to sign up, please visit and contact Ralph Achenbach with any questions at 619-461-7510 ext. 278.
