Hatchbrook Gardens at Applecheek Farm Vegetable CSA for 2011 season
As two young farmers, we’re excited to partner with Applecheek Farm for the 2011 growing season. We will be organically cultivating two acres of diverse vegetables, herbs, and flowers for the CSA shares using compost-based fertility and a minimum of fossil fuel-derived inputs. Members will pick up their produce shares weekly at the farm in Hyde Park beginning in mid-June and ending in late-October.
Our shareholders will be a part of:
• Free-Choice: Take which vegetables you want, and however much you think you and your family will need for the week
• Food Preservation: Members will have access to produce for their own preserving, an essential part of eating wholesome, local food in our climate year-round
• Intimate, Small-Scale Agriculture: By keeping this food project small, we will be able to know and learn from each other through group gardening/preserving workshops, potlucks, and work parties throughout the season
• Participatory Food Production: We welcome members to help us in the gardens, so that they may learn more about the many tasks involved in independent food production
One Adult (18 & older) - $300
Two Adults - $500
Teens (12-17) - $100 per teen
Children (11 & under) – eat for free
We believe that everyone should have access to wholesome food. Ask us about alternative payment options if needed.
