|Javier, Bri, Colton and Armand display their table of goodies at the Terra Madre Day event.|
The CSC Youth Garden crew members helped spread some holiday cheer by selling and handing out samples of hand-grown and hand-made, giftable items like jellies, preserves, barbeque sauce, salsa, dill relish and dried beans at their booth - all popular sellers. Luckily for those that couldn't make it to Terra Madre Day, some items are still available.
If you would like to stock your pantry or stuff your stockings with some delicious food grown and made by our hard-working CSC Youth Garden team, stop by the office (536 SW 2nd Street in Corvallis) or call 541-758-2776.
The CSC Youth Garden is a program of the Workforce and Education Department of Community Services Consortium (CSC), a community action agency serving Linn, Benton and Lincoln Counties. The CSC Youth Garden charges 4-10 youth per season with the responsibility of caring for 40 raised beds without the use of herbicides or pesticides. Herbs and veggies are sold at our spring, summer and fall farmers' market stands, and a portion is donated to the Linn Benton Food Share.
