You might be tired of reading about it, but I’m not tired of writing about it! That’s right. It is CSA update time! To date we have 12 families registered. And we hope there are a lot more to come. Hooray!
Last night at the social action committee meeting we discussed further marketing strategies and learned about what is happening on THE FARM. Some of the beds have been planted and there are the beginning springs of life. This April has been fairly dry meaning that things on the farm are a bit ahead of schedule. In the ground are salad greens, swiss chard, kale, radishes, onions and some other veggies that I can’t remember this second. Before we know it, June 1 will be upon us and those involved will get our first opportunity to use our CSA. I’m getting excited.
There was also a really great story in JTA about a CSA in Israel that is joining two Israeli and Palestinian communities.
Last night I asked the social action committee to introduce themselves and also share one of their favorite vegetables. It was a difficult thing for most people to choose! Responses included: eggplant, squash, sweet potato, cucumber, swiss chard, celery, and asparagus. My choice was brussels sprouts in case the picture wasn’t entirely clear. I also like a lot of other vegetables, too and I’m excited to try some new things this summer with the CSA.
Enough about delicious and nutritious vegetables. If you have questions about Pri Adamah, feel free to send them along.
