Announcing the VVS Farm CSA!April 3, 2017
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) reconnects people with the farms that produce their food, improving personal health, community vitality, and environmental stewardship. By registering as a Verde Valley School Farm CSA member you become a steward of the local farmland while investing in our school’s guiding principles of environmental stewardship, the value of physical labor, and service to others.
Customers support our farm through becoming members and buying a share of the year’s harvest in advance. Throughout the season, CSA members will receive a bounty of delicious, flavorful, local farm food with a monthly newsletter about the farm with special seasonal recipes. Enjoy the bounty of our farm’s crops with your family!
Vegetable Box Shares
Members receive a “Farmer’s Pick” assortment of seasonal, fresh vegetables and herbs weekly from the Verde Valley School Farm for 20 weeks from June 5 – October 23.
Every week the vegetable selection changes based on the season and weather conditions. On average, a vegetable box includes enough veggies and herbs to supplement weekly meals for two adults. All of our vegetables are grown without the use of synthetic chemicals and grown using organic methods (though not certified).
What is in a vegetable box share?
Example 1: Late Spring (May)- snap peas, mixed greens, radishes, beets
Example 2: Mid Summer (July)- tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, squash
Example 3: Mid Fall (August)- tomatoes, peppers, beans, watermelon
Our prices are based on $20/week of vegetable produce equalling $400 in value! A deposit of $200 is due upon registration with full payment due by July 15th. For the time being we are only accepting check or cash payments. Please make checks payable to Verde Valley School.
Due to a busy farm schedule, vegetable shares may only be picked up on Monday between 4-6 pm at the Verde Valley School Farm.
