The Arc Mercer Horticulture Program at Fernbrook … A Fruitful Harvest

August 24th, 2017


By Joanne May

This year, we are celebrating The Arc Mercer’s second season of partnership with Fernbrook Farms CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Our consumers, along with their teacher Ross and farmer Jeff and his crew, are learning about where our food comes from. They are taking part in the planting, farming, picking, packing and delivering of various types of vegetables and berries. Our participants are getting a farm-to-table experience.

The Arc Mercer has a share at the farm that we work and deliver to our Touch of Taste Café, which then can provide organic vegetables in many of its dishes. This has been–and continues to be–a fruitful learning experience!
