La Luz Center and Benziger Winery have joined forces this summer to bring locally grown produce to the community, while raising funds to support community health programs related to nutrition. The goal of this pilot program is that it will grow to a “Mercadito” or community market in 2018.

Skilled Benziger vineyard workers created a terraced garden plot on the Imagery Winery property where a variety of summer vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers for the Mercadito project are being raised. La Luz volunteers will assemble the weekly bounty for Wednesday pick up at La Luz Center, 9:30 to 11:30 am.

Subscriptions are $350 for 12 weeks, available now, with a limit of 30 subscriptions.

Traveling this summer? There’s also an option to sponsor a La Luz family with a subscription, or you may designate a friend or family to pick up your allocation when you are away.
