Healthy Tijuana: Community Supported Agriculture in urban Tijuana

RanchoBajamosalRancho Bajamosal is located out in the rural area between Tijuana and Rosarito.   Owner Adriana Whizar delivers baskets of organics to her growing base of customers every two weeks. And fresh, community grown fair trade coffee from local family farms in Veracruz comes from her friend Cynthia Ramirez Comparán who works with the Centro Agroecologico del Cafe en Veracruz, a non-profit organizing the production and distribution of coffee on family farms in 35 municipalities in Veracruz.

Adriana and Cynthia are excellent representatives of a new community supported agriculture movement here in Tijuana of organic small farmers, producing and promoting health and well-being through good nutrition and healthy, organic vegetables, fruits and other foods.
