The first year of our vegetable CSA has been a success so far. We faced some big challenges with the prolonged drought in the middle of the season, but we are happy to say we pulled through it and kept most of the plants alive! We are grateful to our members for signing up for the first year, also our first time growing vegetables for anyone other than ourselves.
The challenges of this year have been very instructive, and we are confident that with the experience we’ve gained we will be able to meet our members’ needs ever more readily. We already have big plans for next year, including offering more CSA shares, planting berries and an apple orchard, and installing an irrigation system.
We are enjoying our CSA program so far and we are encouraged to hear that many of our members are as well. We are also looking forward to spending the winter looking through seed catalogues and making plans!
We encourage anyone new who is interested in signing up for next year to join our newsletter mailing list or contact us directly. We will be sending out an email in the winter to invite new members to sign up, and space will be limited.
