The 10-week program began Jan. 14, but UCR faculty, staff and students can participate for the final five weeks if they register by Feb. 18.

A full share, good for a family of four (or a couple of hungry vegetarians) includes five types of seasonal fruits, five types of seasonal vegetables and one herb. It costs $28 a week — about $140 for the final five weeks. Medium shares cost $18 a week, and include half counts on the fruits, and half counts on four of the veggies. Participants can pick up their produce every Thursday, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. or 4 to 6 p.m. at the Market at Glen Mor.
