Review for Kavana, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have enjoyed many activities with the Kavana Cooperative over the past three years including community (often Shabbat) dinners, cooking classes, and in 2009 weekly participation in the Kavana Tuv Ha'Aretz CSA. I'm finding the benefits of the CSA (community supported agriculture) go beyond buying local produce direct from a farm, an excellent end in itself. Through our CSA we have developed a personal relationship with our farmer, and enriched our community with weekly activities that raise our awareness of local and sustainable food practices, and are just plain fun!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The CSA: Buying direct from a local farm is an excellent end in itself. We have developed a personal relationship with our farmer and enriched our community with weekly activities that are fun and raise awareness of local and sustainable food practices.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Energetic, progressive, and very thoughtful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Buy a lot of local, healthy and nutritious produce for food banks, and make eating fruits and veggies fun for kids. It's really amazing to see how much Kavana's kids (like 2, 3 and 4 year olds) love eating fruits and vegetables.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
