Wednesday, May 8th
Noon - 1:15pm
Facilitator: Phillip Anderson
What is community supported agriculture or CSA? It is a program in which members buy a "share" of the year's harvest before the season begins. This arrangement provides unique advantages for the grower and the consumer. The growers are assured a degree of certainty in marketing their produce, and consumers have a direct source for their fresh vegetable needs, all while contributing to the local economy and sound land management principles.
Come and meet Philip Anderson. Hear the wonderful story of his family and how the Anderson Organics farm grew to be what it is today. Learn about organic farming techniques, the new greenhouses and microgreens! Phil will also talk about the vegetables they are growing for this season and how to get INVOLVED. How to purchase a “Share” for the 2019 season. Anderson Organics is located in Caledonia, right in our own backyard.
Advance registration is appreciated. Walk-ins welcome.
