COMMMUNITY GARDEN PLOTS
NATURAL SCIENCE SEMINAR RESEARCH PAPER
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is an arrangement where members buy into the farm at the start of the growing season and in exchange receive a share of the farms harvest. Shares are distributed each week throughout the season.
Diversity is our specialty. Each season we grow a variety of different vegetables such as brazing mix, salad mix, bok choi, spinach, onions, garlic, squash, raspberries, blueberries, culinary herbs, peas, green beans, a variety of tomatoes, radishes as well as cut flowers. A selection of these vegetables are prepared in a box for the CSA member once a week to be picked up at the garden shed. Often there is a description of the vegetables and recipes available for each member. Generally the share consists of 7lb of vegetables per week, but fluctuates depending on the time of season.
• Fresh locally grown vegetables. Our careful variety selection and organic growing practices bring out the very best in flavor!
• Competing with environmentally detrimental industrial food producers from distant regions.
• We follow the USDA organic guidelines.
• You become part of a community that is committed to healthy food and a cleaner environment!
Members pay 200$ in the beginning of the season and recieve a box once a week from May to December. If interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to high demand, the CSA is only offered to Warren Wilson College members.
