Grassroot Organics has again this year teamed up with the fine folks at Fresh Fuell and has a CSA (produce box) pick up spot in Lindsay!
WHO are we?
Grassroot Organics is small-scale, mixed agriculture, multi-generational, family farm in Woodville. We have been growing organically for over 15 years- we ain’t new to this! We also provide sustainable farm consulting and teach in the Sustainable Agriculture program at Fleming college. Up until this point we have been marketing direct into Toronto at the Brickworks Farmers’ Market and to fine dining restaurants such as Edulis, Buca, Cava, ‘KB’, Café Belong, Ascari, Burdock, Actinolite and many more.
WHAT to expect?
You will receive A $30 box of the FRESHEST organically grown produce every week. The produce will change from week to week as different veggies/fruits come into season. In 2017, we plan to grow over 50 varieties of vegetables – so there will be plenty of variety.
This 17 week CSA program is $510.
Check out our what’s in the box post to get a picture of what you expect in your weekly shares.
WHY a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. The eater (you!) pays for their produce in advance. This helps the farmer plan the season. In turn, the farmer provides ultra-fresh, high-quality produce each week. This arrangement fosters direct relationships between the farmer and the consumer, allowing you an opportunity to provide feedback, arrange for farm visits, and to get to know the farmer that grows the food that your family eats daily.
The season will be from June 12 to October 2 (17 weeks total). Pick ups are on Monday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Fresh Fuell- 146 Kent Street West Lindsay Ontario.
HOW do I get involved?
Sign up! The total cost for the CSA is $510 paid in one lump sum or 2 payments of $255 due on May 1st and June 1st (post dated cheques are preferred).
Feel free to pass the word around if you have any friends/ family that would be interested in our CSA. We look forward to hearing from you. Please email if you have any questions or concerns.
