We are opening several spaces for the fall session of our 2011 CSA program. Read below for the details, and email us for the application.

Our fall program includes weekly shares of seasonal vegetables for ten weeks beginning September 7th. We provide a weekly e-newsletter that includes description of the vegetables along with recipes. When available, we will also introduce you to some locally, naturally grown fruits and vegetables produced by local farmers we know and trust.

In the fall season you can expect to receive a variety of fall and summer vegetables. The following vegetables will be grown for the fall season: radishes, carrots, turnips, beets, lettuce, salad mix, arugula, spinach, kale, mustards, bok choi, broccoli, cabbage, fennel, parsley and dill, swiss chard, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, winter squash, green beans, okra, melons, corn, basil, peppers, eggplant and more. We will also include naturally grown apples from a local farmer.

Each weekly bag will include a minimum of five different vegetables or fruits and have an average value of $25. The cost is $25 per week for 10 weeks for a total cost of $250. A down payment of $150 is due with application by August 24th.
