The mission of Sustainable Solano’s Local Food initiative is to create an environmentally sustainable, economically viable and socially just local food system in Solano County. You can help us build a local food system. Find out how below!
Seasonal Spotlight: Radishes
Why Eat Radishes?
Radishes are available year-round in Solano County and range from the Cherry Belle to the large daikon. They are a good source of Vitamin C, folate and riboflavin, potassium and calcium.
How to Prepare Them
Eat them crunchy and raw in a salad or sautee. Roast, braise or grill radishes to mellow the flavor. And don’t forget that the greens can be prepared like other winter greens!
Join us for upcoming cooking classes featuring radishes!
Where to Find It?
- at your local farm stands and open farmers markets
- in your Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box from local farms
- in some of this year’s Bounty of the County recipes!

Sustainable Solano has had a vision for a while now: To have an office space that serves as a place of education around the many things we teach about, such as sustainable landscaping, water capture and reuse; cooking with seasonal, sustainable local food; and building community resilience.
A medically tailored meals program has yet to be fully established in the county, but initiatives are already underway. A diverse group of stakeholders from various sectors have rallied together, all driven by a shared vision.
