Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA) is back!

Human Resources and the Sustainability Committee have again joined forces to bring the CSA back to campus for 2014 for the enjoyment of the staff and students.

Here are the highlights:

  • The cost is $450 per share (sign up before March 1st and receive a $25 discount)
  • Our season is from June to November
  • Delivery directly to campus each week for the entire growing season
  • Each share includes approximately 6-8 varieties of freshly harvested vegetables (12-14 lbs), enough to feed an family of 4!
  • Deadline to sign up is April 4th

New in 2014:

  • If you do not like all the vegetables that are included, there will be alternative items available for swapping. Members can swap out up to 2 items each week.
  • Each member will fill their own reusable bags. The items will be in separate crates and you will be able to "pick" your items.
  • We are going to try to have a pick up in Newburgh. If you are on the Newburgh campus, please remember to select the Newburgh campus when registering. We need 10 shares from Newburgh to make this CSA location.

We do not offer half shares, but you can split shares between members. Anyone can be your CSA buddy. You can ask your friends, co-workers, or family members to split a full share.

Enroll today in the CSA.
