I first stumbled upon the Sustainable Student Farm stand on Thursday afternoon on my way to class. I was almost overwhelmed with the variety of produce being sold. I started at it and bought a bag of spinach, mini peppers, green onion and an acorn squash because it just looked so cool. While checking out I chatted with Matt Turino. He was also a big fan of the fresh produce that the stand offered and as a volunteer there are more opportunities for obtaining fresh produce. With fads of today dealing with eating more organically, I have been curious to hop on the bandwagon and start eating right. But SSF has a view on sustainability that goes beyond what most people think.
Summer seems to have come and gone with a blink of an eye, but we can be thankful for the continuation of fresh local produce growing in abundance at the Sustainable Student Farm in Champaign-Urbana.
