KCC IS CANCELED FOR 6-4-11!
The farmer, family and friends at the Otsuji farm want to wish you all the best in 2011.
Ed Otsuji has been farming at his Hawaii Kai farm for the past 40 years (459 Pakala St)...but it has only been one year that we have been selling directly from our farm to you. We want to thank you for all of your support, your kindness, your friendship, your suggestions, your snacks and your unused plastic bag! The farmer enjoys meeting directly with the consumer. The volunteers love meeting and helping new people.
Remember, one of the reasons that we have our "box of veggies" is to give you enough veggies to share with your friends, family and friends. So we encourage you to use your veggies as instruments of peace and friendship. We have already sold +50 gift certificates this week. We can also make special gift boxes of veggies for your special friends, family or clients.
Our hope/goal is to encourage everyone to:
1. Support the local farmers. We're trying to grow better and more types of veggies.
2. Start a garden in their yard. If you need help, we can send someone to your home.
3. Build up your food pantry for the "rainy day". If you need ideas...let us know
Let us know the next time you want a box of veggies...otherwise, just come down to look at the fresh veggies.
You can get your veggies from us on:
1. Tuesday evenings (4 - 6) on the Kaiser High School campus farmer's market.
2. Thursday evening (4 - 7) in Kailua at the farmers market by Long's Drugs.
3. Satuday morning (8 - 11) at the farm at 459 Pakala St.
4. Saturday morning (9 - 11) at Kaiser High School campus farmers market.
5. Saturday morning (7:30 - 11) at Kapiolani Community College on the slopes of Diamond Head. We only have a limited selection of veggies here. No boxes are sold here.
