GROWN IN DETROIT CSA PROGRAM
For decades, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs have supported small-scale farmers and strengthened local food systems by encouraging consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from farmers. Interested consumers purchase a share and in return, receive seasonal produce throughout the specified season. The 2016 Grown in Detroit Thanksgiving Shares will supply shareholders and their families with seasonal vegetables and herbs from Grown in Detroit growers on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (November 22nd). A printable brochure and enrollment form is available here.
Spring CSA shares are also available between early May and the end of June. One share will generally supply a family of four with all the early season vegetables they can eat for a week. Spring vegetables include salad mix, arugula, kale, chard, collards, fresh herbs, radishes, beets, carrots, sugar snap peas, and more! Members are responsible for picking up their weekly share at the Plum Street Market Garden on Wednesday evenings 4-6 pm. Check back later for enrollment info for spring 2017 shares.
