What is the CSA?

Global Growers' CSA Program: Community supported agriculture is more than a shopping relationship - a give and take of produce for cash. Under the CSA model, the people who invest in "shares" of the farm pay in advance for the produce that they will receive, providing farmers with the capital they need to begin the season. CSA shareholders agree to receive weekly shares of the produce that is harvested, and our farmers work hard to provide a diversified, balanced selection of produce that's in season. CSA shareholders also share the risk that farmers take in planting, tending and harvesting their crops, and understand that, unlike the produce section of a grocery store, the harvest reflects both the skills of the farmer and the realities of the local climate and growing seasons.

This year it will be two 15 week subscriptions with both full and half shares available. Please go online to get more information, and sign up.

Appalachia Service Project Bake Sales have returned!! Bake sales will be held after the 11am services on April 13, April 27, and May 11. The money raised goes directly to reducing the cost of attending ASP for all participants. IF YOU CAN'T BAKE, PLEASE COME BUY SOMETHING AT THE BAKE SALES!
