Fall shares are now available! Reserve your share at www.WhiteViolet.CSAsignup.com!
What’s in the bag?
Vegetable share members can expect a variety of clean, seasonal USDA Certified Organic vegetables and fruit. Also, jams, jellies, pickles and other goodies as they become available. A full share will feed a small family, or a couple of veggie-loving adults.
White Violet Center gardens are USDA Certified Organic. Our veggies proudly sport the green & white organic label!
We can’t predict what weather, pests, or disease will come our way, so keep in mind that these offerings may fluctuate. Our crop list is split into two groups: foundation crops — items we have in larger quantities for longer harvest periods, usually 4 weeks or more, and season-specific crops — items with a more limited harvest window and usually in lower quantities. These crops may make an appearance for 1-3 weeks at a time.
Crops planned for 2016:
Foundation crops: lettuce mix, head lettuce, kale, chard, beets, garlic, green beans, basil, dill, peppers, potatoes, summer squash, tomatoes, eggplant, and radishes.
Season-specific crops: peas, broccoli, onions, carrots, cucumber, sweet corn, spinach, arugula, cabbage, cilantro, parlsey, chives, Japanese turnips, winter squash, pumpkins, watermelon, and sweet potatoes.

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.
