Last summer’s CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program at St. Paul’s was a big success and we’re ready to do it again. SaJe Dar, from Burma, will return again this year as our farmer. She is a graduate of the New Roots for Refugees program and is starting out on her own this year.
- The program runs 18 weeks, from Sunday May 13 – Sunday, September 9. Fresh vegetables are delivered to church each Sunday for pickup from 9:15-11:15.
- Sign up at the ConneXions Center by May 1st. Program is limited to the first 20 families who sign up. Payment of $246 due at sign up covers all 18 weeks of deliveries. Make check payable to the farmer, SaJe Dar, and place it in the collection box on the wall between the office and conference room.
- Concerned you won’t be able to use up your veggies? Arrange to “share a share” with a friend or neighbor! Contact Janean Grogan, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Volunteer! Help with set-up or cleanup one Sunday per month, be a back-up, or help with planning and organizing.
- Contact Janean Grogan, email@example.com, with questions and/or to volunteer.
