Join the DIG CSA this summer!
Thursday, Mar 5, 2015
DIG is launching our pilot CSA program this year and you can be a part of it!
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture; it is a way for you to invest in the success of our farm while ensuring your access to fresh, sustainably grown food.
The way a CSA works is that you pay for a your share of veggie at the beginning of the growing season, and for 20 week from May to November you will come pick up a box from our garden with a wide variety of vegetables. Each Saturday you will come to SEEDS and pick up from your box of at least 6 different kinds of vegetables, with a value of $25+ per box, enough for a family of four.
In order to ensure that we are addressing the issue of food access in our community, we are offering two kinds of CSA shares: a Cultivator Share and a Community Share, for families with limited access to fresh organic veggies.
The Cultivator Share is $700, a bit more than a typical CSA share in the Triangle, but that’s because a portion of the cost goes to subsidize the price cut we are offering with our Community Shares. This means that for the cost of a cup of coffee a week, a family can get an affordable CSA share.
The Community Share is $300, which comes to about $15 a week for $25 worth of fresh veggies. This option is intended for folks who could use some financial support in order to provide their families with fresh, sustainably grown produce.
