Cedar Knoll and Kara Cifizzari pick mixed greens at Red Dog Farm in Chimacum. Part of the farm’s operations are aided by locals who provide financial support in the beginning of spring, when farms need it to buy seeds and supplies. In exchange, Red Dog gives these members a box of healthy produce each week throughout the season. Kara says the work that goes into organic farming is hard, but rewarding. “When I sit around a table of delicious, nutritious, gorgeous food with a fine group of folk there’s not a single more satisfying desire I could ever conjure, even before putting the spoon to my mouth. And to know that I worked so hard – with much love and dedication provided by those who surround me – makes every muscle ache, thistle sting, finger slice, and sun burn worth all the while.”
