Yard sale to benefit Roots CSA


People who would like to support Kootenai Environmental Alliance’s Roots Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) garden can head out to the annual yard sale fundraiser Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For a fee, the Roots CSA program provides a box of sustainably grown food throughout the growing season and is unique in that a large portion of the shares are accessible to low-income families. The garden project, which has a waiting list of 50 families, is working to secure more land to expand.

The yard sale will be held at the garden site, at 6039 Davenport Street in Dalton Gardens. For more information, contact Korrine Kreilkamp at (208) 659-0287.
