Save 25 percent on fresh produce deliveries, meet the farmers Feb. 26

Sign up to get fresh, locally grown produce delivered to you at the Public Service Center. You’ll save 25 percent when you register with a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm in the City employee program between Feb. 26 and March 11. CSAs deliver locally grown produce to their members regularly during the growing season.

The local CSA farms in the City employee program are:

The Hmong American Farmers Association and Shared Ground Farmers' Cooperative have agreed to deliveries Wednesdays every week or every other week. The Women’s Environmental Initiative agreed to deliveries Tuesdays every week or every other week. All three will drop off CSA boxes at the Public Service Center, 250 S. Fourth St. No need to pay for parking to pick your delivery up — just pull into the lot off of Fourth Street and grab your box of produce from right inside the back door.

Meet the farmers

Mark your calendar to meet these farmers between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 26, in the Rotunda at City Hall. You’ll have a chance to talk to the farmers, ask questions and get information on their produce, pricing and delivery schedules.

CSA members pay for the entire season of produce up front or in installments, which helps the farmers cover their growing costs. The cost varies by farm, but the options range from $275-$595 for the season depending on the number of deliveries and the amount of produce delivered.
