Introducing Starlight Gardens CSA for 2012 !

Posted 2/9/2012 10:31am by David Zemelsky.
Dear Star Light Gardens Fans,

This season we are starting our first CSA!  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, here is a brief explaination:

Imagine that you are given the opportunity to receive weekly fresh, organically grown produce at  your favorite farm.  And while you are there,have an equally interesting opportunity to meet other people  who believe that locally and sustainably  grown, fresh  food is extremely important for both your mental and physical health.  Am I drawing a clear enough picture?  

CSA members, in a very real sense become an intregal part of the life on the farm.  Shareholders (that's what you really are!) own a real share of the harvest.  You can benefit from the kind of growing season we have by receiving bonus amounts of food during bountiful times.  Of course, a poor season will also affect the amount of food that one receives.

The CSA model  gives you the ability to experiment with the very best food that is available at the time that you receive your share.  Each week shareholders come to Star Light Gardens between 2PM-7PM on either a Wednesday or a Thursday.  Upon arrival, you'll immediately be able to see what your share for the week looks like.  There will be bins of delicious produce spread around our Distribution Shed with signs indicating how many lbs(or pieces) of each item would be your share.  Additionaly,, we'll be blogging on a regular basis : sharing the events that shaped our growing week on the farm. Giving you great recipes will help you to cook amazing dishes.  There really is no good substitute for fresh vegetables that are grown by someone you know and trust.  There aren't any good words to describe how amazing well grown food tastes.  

And that exactly is our main wish:  to grow for you the very best and nutritious food that you can find anywhere on the planet.
