We love a good deal on pretty things – and these flowers at the new Cookbook are definitely one of those!

New bouquets come to Cookbook every Wednesday from a garden slash farm run by North Hollywood High. They are organically grown and arranged by high school students, and they are just $5 a bouquet!

Sales benefit the high school garden/farm, a seven-acre lot with a vineyard, dahlias (which you can see in the bouquets in the photo above), and even farm animals like chickens. Produce from the garden/farm also go toward “green” restaurants and farmers’ markets throughout Los Angeles.

Get your bouquets at Cookbook, open daily from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm, and is located at 1549 Echo Park Avenue

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is coming to Echo Park starting next week! With a $25.00 per week subscription (or every other week, your choice), CSA will drop off locally grown produce for you to pack up in your own bag (and don’t forget to bring your own bag!).

Included in “this week’s bag” according to the CSA website are: Plums, nectarines, peaches, red leaf or romaine lettuce, broccoli, bell pepper, celery, green beans, cabbage, tomatoes, kale. Next week might be different, but it doesn’t sound like you’ll lose out.

If you’re interested, make sure you sign up right away – policies require you pay 48 hours in advance or you’ll have to wait until the following week.

CSA comes to Echo Park every Tuesday starting Tuesday, August 17 from 3-5:00 pm at Mooi Restaurant (1700 W. Sunset Blvd.) Click here to pay for your bag of locally grown produce on the CSA website.

Now if you don’t want to subscribe to CSA, there’s always the Echo Park Farmers’ Market on Fridays, which has locally grown produce, and later this summer Cookbook grocery store will open.
