:: SEASONAL BUYING GUIDES ::
Monthly Seasonal Buying Guides are designed to provide inspiration for sourcing seasonally. It will help keep your costs down, support local economies + give money directly to our local farmers!
I want seasonal guides to be in the hands of every chef + food business owner in SoCal (and beyond very soon!), so this product is is offered as “Pay What You’d Like” . During checkout you choose how much you’d like to contribute for the information you’re receiving and 50% of your payment will be donated to a food-based charity in support of
our mission to get good food to those who need it most.
:: YOUR purchase THIS MONTH WILL SUPPORT GROW GOOD FARM ::
Grow Good is an inspired urban farm providing fresh food, a transitional employment program, life skills classes + culinary training to members of the The Salvation Army’s Bell CA Shelter. Learn more on their website.
Each seasonal guide is divided into seven ingredient categories and is full of detailed information about what will be abundant that month.
