Program offers

locally grown produce

The eighth annual That's My Farmer celebration will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at First United Methodist Church, 13th Avenue and Olive Street.

The event is a chance to meet local farmers and learn more about participating in the Community Supported Agriculture program. In the program, customers buy a weekly box of fresh fruits and vegetables from May through the fall. Customers pay for the produce in the spring to help farmers begin the planting season.

Farmers will be available at 6:30 p.m., and will give presentations beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The event is free but donations are accepted to help make local organic produce available to low-income families.
