What's In My CSA Box 001

Denverites, if you haven't heard of Growhaus, you're definitely missing out! The non-profit does amazing work to bring fresh and affordable food to the residents of Elyria-Swansea and Globeville (the most polluted area in the United States). Among other things, Growhaus offers weekly CSA food boxes. Check out the goodies I got this week!
