Cody Curtis and Lucy O’Dea – both graduates of Nevada Union High School – made a full circle by delivering 122 pounds of delicious red globe grapes to Nevada County students for October’s Harvest of the Month! They grew these delicious grapes at Flying V Farm, where Cody & Lucy produce fresh, organic produce in a way that nourishes our community, stewards the land and empowers workers. Cody and Lucy participated in Sierra Harvest’s Land Match program to find the land to start a business, and we are thrilled they can now supply Harvest of the Month tastings for our community!
