Do you dream of spring on cold winter days? Do you look out at the white of the snow and imagine the colors of the rainbow? Do you eat food?
If you answered `yes’ to any of these questions, maybe it is time to start thinking about a CSA membership this season. Come out to the TinMountainConservationCenter6pmCommunitySchool‘s Kim Knollenberg and learn more about their organic CSA. to join the on Tuesday, March 29th at
Being a member of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) means sharing the sunshine on a gorgeous summer day; bringing home fresh seasonal colors (in the form of food, flowers and smiling family faces); access to a variety of high quality, locally grown, certified organic food and more! The Community School CSA offers both full and half share sizes. Typically – depending on the time of year and how hungry you are – a full share will feed a family of four and a half share is good for a family of two. They also offer shares for the full growing season (15 weeks from June 21-Oct 6), summer season only (8 weeks from July 5-Sept 1), and fall season only (5 weeks from Aug 30-Oct 6).
Kim Knollenberg is The Community School’s new garden manager. Kim began work for the new growing season in early February bringing with her lots of experience from two organic farms in upstate New York: Common Ground and Four Winds Farms. Trained as an architect, Kim’s commitment to create one of the basic human needs, shelter, has transformed itself into providing an even more fundamental element: food. Kim is enthusiastic about putting her experience with no-till agriculture into practice on TCS land. This summer’s gardens will showcase soil building, and Kim will incorporate the practices of heavy mulching, making and using compost, and avoiding tractor tilling.
If you have never been a part of a CSA, now is the time. If you have been a member in the past and are thinking about re-joining, now is the time. If you already have decided to join us this season, now is the time… to thank you!
