Take the Kids Strawberry Picking
CISA Announces: Strawberry Season has Started!
Those delicious red berries are waiting for you. The sweet juicy taste of a locally grown, fresh-picked strawberry beats those well-traveled California berries anytime. You can pick your own at a number of Local Hero farms or pick some up at a local retailer. Just ask someone in the produce section where to find the locally grown strawberries or look for the green and yellow Local Hero logo.
