Community Supported Agriculture

Friday, October 10th, 2008

So today I have been working a little bit on our Community Supported Agriculture. Our goal is to have 20 members.  We have reached that goal in the past, especially since we have established a drop-off point over in Astoria. 

I have set a personal goal of getting 30 members this time around. So I have made a flyer to hang around to let everyone know that there is a CSA available here on the peninsula. Last night I went and pasted them all over this little town and when I came into work this morning I had already gotten calls from people who saw the flyers and wanted to JOIN! I’m so excited, I think CSA is really a great way for people to learn and understand where their food is coming from. You don’t know who grows those salad greens you by over in Safeway, or where those baby carrots came from. Purchasing produce from local farms lets people get to know the hands that feed them. 

So help support local farms and join a CSA around your area, or if you can visit our farm-store…come by and you can see where YOUR food is coming from. 

www.localharvest.com  will help you find a CSA in your area. 

 

Let me introduce myself and our farm.

Me!

Hi, my name is Samantha and I am the full time manager of Green Angel’s Organic Farm. I am turning 18 soon, and having this job has helped me look at our community and generally the world totally different. I am a locavore and really I think this is the best possible way to eat, because eating local produced food you for 1, get to know where your food comes from and even sometimes meet the person who grows it for you and also think about all the trucks that have to drive from all the different locations to bring the industrial stores their produce, and all the food coming from across seas. All the transportation is a waste of fuel, which is kinda a big deal right now, and is producing a whole bunch of Co2 that is going straight into our atmosphere. :( 

I am now planning on going to college and getting a degree in Agriculture/Horticulture to have a Organic farm of my own and to help teach others about growing thier own food and actually how fun and simple it can be!

I will be posting weekly, updating you on our farm, our chickens, just Green Angel Gardens in general. :)

Fridays, we have volunteer day. From 10 until noon, feel free to come and learn all about organic farming.

stay tuned for more updates. :)
