Save on local produce deliveries during Public Health Week; employee discount ends April 9

You’ll save 25 percent when you register for a farm share in the City’s community supported agriculture (CSA) employee program during Public Health Week, which ends April 9. Sign up to get fresh, locally grown produce delivered to you at the Public Service Center or one of the CSA’s other Twin Cities drop-off sites.

CSAs deliver locally grown produce to their members regularly during the growing season. The local farms in the City’s employee CSA program are:

The Hmong American Farmers Association and Shared Ground Farmers’ Cooperative will deliver Wednesdays every week or every other week at the Public Service Center in addition to their other regular drop-off sites. (HAFA drop-off sites and Shared Ground drop-off sites). The Women’s Environmental Initiative will deliver Tuesdays every week or every other week at the Public Service Center in addition to the regular drop-off sites listed on their website. There’s no need to pay for parking if you choose to pick your delivery up at the Public Service Center — just pull into the lot off of Fourth Street and grab your box of produce from right inside the back door.

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.
