Question About Fairview Gardens
updated: Feb 03, 2010, 1:53 PM

Submitted as response to question

The Farm Stand has been closed for renovations and recently re-opeded. There are some significant changes you will notice when you stop by. We are only able to sell Fairview Grown produce and we encourage our loyal supporters to head to the Isla Vista Food Co-op for other local produce and grocery items. The Farm Stand is now honor system based. There are price lists available and cash or check is dropped into the barrel at the counter. We hope to have volunteers at the stand to answer questions and hope that the community will embrace and respect this alternative method of selling produce.

One of the many reasons for this change is that currently, the farm stand is located in the City of Goleta’s easement to the West and Southern California Edison’s easement to the North. After much discussion, considering, and consulting, we have decided that it is more efficient and cost effective to sell only Fairview grown produce on a honor system, self-serve basis, leaving a simpler set up that will allow continuation of the CSA and a place of greeting for those visiting the farm.

Once we are able to develop a plan that complies with the rules determined by the Environmental Health Services, we plan to again sell produce grown on other farms and grocery items. Your continued support is needed more than ever during these changes and we look forward to providing you with local organic produce through a modified farm stand and our CSA as we have always done.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me directly at farmstand@fairviewgardens.org

Thank you for your concern and support, Jen Corey Marketing Manager Fairview Gardens

good luck with not having it staffed, being that they're so close to the jr. high
