In June, we visited the “Community Supported Gardens

at LaVista” near Grafton, located above the bluffs

along the Great River Road.

It was hot enough to issue a heat advisory,

but farmers still farm…

And crops are still harvested…

The Community Supported Gardens at LaVista is a

CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).  Buying

crop shares is a way to share in the risk and reward

of farming…

Crop shares are now being delivered on Saturday

mornings at Garden Heights Nursery in Richmond Heights.

Here’s the link for more information:


Here is Maurice Lange, one of the original founders,

and our tour guide, talking to teenagers…

And here’s the cute video we made of our field trip:
