We are now accepting shareholders (members/subscribers) for the 2014 CSA growing season! Call Candace Minster at 812-535-2933 today! She’ll have a few questions for you to get us all started off on the right foot together.
Shareholders receive enough variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables, and herbs each week to feed a small family or two veggie-loving adults.
Participants may look forward to onions, tomatoes, salad greens, spinach, potatoes, green beans, green onions, eggplant, cabbage, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, sweet peas, beets, mustard greens, asparagus, radishes, fresh herbs, carrots, peppers, and some surprises.
Choose from these pick-up locations
Shareholders pick up their share of produce every Wednesday (or every other week on Wednesday for half shares) beginning in May 2014 at:
- White Violet Center at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods: 3:30-5:30 p.m. (EST)
- Central Location at 113 S. 19th St. in Terre Haute: 4:30-6:30 p.m. (EST), or
- Regional Hospital on South 7th St. in Terre Haute: 4-5:30 p.m. (EST)
Reasons to support our Community Supported Agriculture program:
- Locally-grown foods are fresher and taste better
- Organic growing methods used in our garden are in the spirit of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, foundress of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods
- Establish a vital link between your food, the people who grew it and the land that nourished it
All shareholders are asked to commit to this statement:
I understand that by becoming a shareholder of the Community Supported Agriculture initiative, I will share both the rewards and the risks of the growing season along with the other shareholders and the growers. I recognize that there is no guarantee of the exact amount I will receive each week. I agree to comply with all safety measures posted in the distribution area while on the property.
Full shares are $475 for 20 weeks, late May-September. (This is the equivalent of less than $24 each week.)
We offer half shares for $275. Half shares are picked up every two weeks.
For the full share, anything donated above the cost of the share up to $650 is tax deductible and allows produce to go to food pantries and homeless shelters in the Terre Haute area.
For the half share, anything donated above the cost of the share up to $425 is tax deductible and allows produce to go to food pantries and homeless shelters in the Terre Haute area.
A discounted work share is offered for individuals who would like to participate in the CSA by volunteering a certain number of hours throughout the growing season.
Those interested in becoming shareholders must first contact Candace Minster, garden manager, at 812-535-2933 or firstname.lastname@example.org before registering. Candace will get a contract and guidelines to you and get your choice of pick-up location recorded.
