Have you heard of Community Supported agriculture (CSA)? Encourage local agriculture by having your own family farmer who will provide you with a wide selection of fresh vegetables every week.
CSA is a direct exchange between producers and consumers. The consumer buys a share into the farm at the beginning of the season, thus becoming a partner in the endeavour. In exchange, the farm commits to providing quality produce, usually harvested the day before, or even the same day.
Example of seasonal vegetables:
Beginning of the season:
- Swiss chard
- Sunflower sprouts
- Cipollini (early fresh onions)
- Chinese cabbage
- Garlic scapes
- Fresh garlic
- Snap peas
- Red and yellow beets
- Ground cherries
- Carrots and greens
- Green beans
End of season:
- Butternut squash
- Red bell pepper
- Baby salad mix
- Brussel sprouts
- Cherry tomatoes
Each basket contains between 9 and 12 vegetables, depending on what’s available in the garden. It’s a surprise every week!
Dates: Mid-June to the end of October
-weekly for 20 deliveries, 575$ for the season
