Area program set for summer's bounty

Thursday, February 11, 2010

WEST TERRE HAUTE -- A Community Supported Agriculture program is returning to White Violet Center for Eco-Justice at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods for the upcoming growing season.

Community Supported Agriculture allows patrons to purchase shares of garden bounty for organic crops. Shareholders can expect a variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs each week, and honey as it becomes available. Each share size will feed a small family of four-six people, or two or three veggie-loving adults.

Benefits of purchasing a share in the CSA program are having an opportunity to enjoy locally grown foods that are fresher and taste better; establish a vital link between your food, the people who grew it and the land that nourished it; and to enjoy organic growing methods.

Shares for produce at White Violet Center for Eco-Justice are $450 for 18 weeks, running from June to September. This is the equivalent of $25 in produce each week.

Shareholders can pick up their basket of produce each Wednesday afternoon at White Violet Center for Eco-Justice. Only 20 shares will be available. Payment options will also be available.

Registration deadline is April 15. For further information, contact Candace Minster at cminster@spsmw.org or at 812-535-2935. To register, send your name, address, phone number and e-mail address to Candace.

White Violet Center for Eco-Justice is a ministry of the Sisters of Providence.
