A new CSA is available in the Tarzana/Woodland Hills area. Info below:
In an effort to continue our venture in community building we are considering offering Calvert as a pick-up location for a CSA. After shopping around, "Join the Farm!", a five acre organicfarm located south of
What is a CSA? Community
What is a CSA box like? Weekly shares of fresh organic produce are enough to feed a family of four. (A half-share -- delivery every other week -- is also available if the full-share seems like too much.) In fall season (October - December) you can expect lettuces, greens, cucumbers, summer and winter squashes, onions, beans and more. Maybe even some tomatoes, corn and melons lingering from summer season. Each week members receive a newsletter with updates from the farm and a guide to what's in your box.
What if I don't eat that much produce? If you can't handle a full share, consider splitting one with a friend, neighbor, or teacher! or purchase a half share (receiving a box twice a month instead of each week).
How much does it cost? A "Fall Season Subscription" (11 weeks) costs $400 - $350 if you sign up by September 30! That's about $32/week. A half-share is $225 for the season. If the full cost of a box prohibits you from participating in the CSA, Join the Farm will do their best to help you find a solution. (Families who are interested in the half-share may want to consider teaming up on a full-share with another family to cut costs.)
Not only is a CSA share a good way to keep your family healthy - it is good for our local economy - and good for the earth! An all around good thing! And a portion comes back to Calvert. Good for everyone!
