CSA

Our student driven CSA starts soon!  This is a collaborative CSA between Flagstaff EcoRanch, Tree A’Lolly Farms, and WIC.  Here are a few photos of some of the veggies growing and awaiting your dinner plates!  We are selling ten shares and donating five to WIC.  Please send us an email if you are interested.  We do have a waiting list, but as the season progresses we are hoping to determine whether we can offer more shares at a reduced cost.  If so, we can get in touch if you are interested.  Shares run $250 for a twenty week period. This will be slightly experimental for us as we have never run a CSA before so we will be checking in with our members for feedback.  Shares will have about three to four pounds of produce each week and towards the beginning of the season, may be supplemented with eggs, dried herbs, or teas as we wait for everything to grow.  One of the biggest challenges in Flagstaff is working with the weather (like 2 inches of snow last week) and making sure everything doesn’t freeze.  Interns and capstone students will be getting involved and using this CSA as a learning tool.  They will be collecting harvest data, consumer feedback, learning about marketing and sales, working with finances, and strengthening community partnerships. We hope that through this CSA we can continue to “grow food to grow the local food network.”
