Does the institution host a farmers' market for the community?:

A brief description of the farmers’ market:

Underwood Family Farms is located 5 miles from the CSU Channel Islands campus in Somis, California. Underwood Family Farms offers a paid subscription to a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. By becoming a member of the Underwood Family Farms CSUCI CSA program, members will receive a weekly shipment of seasonal fruits and vegetables, grown at the Underwood farm. This produce is all grown locally and is harvested one day before members are able to pick up their boxes at El Dorado Hall on the CSUCI campus. All active CSUCI CSA members receive free admission to the farm and access to the recipe blog on the Underwood Family Farms website for the length of their membership.
