Plenty still available in area agriculture program

Sunday, April 4, 2010

TERRE HAUTE -- A few shares remain available in the Community Supported Agriculture program for patrons who wish to enjoy fresh, organically grown strawberries, spinach, broccoli, potatoes, tomatoes, beets and many more garden treats from White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence.

A new pickup site has been added at 19th and Ohio streets in Terre Haute. Weekly shares can also be picked up at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.

Shareholders can expect to get a variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables, and herbs each week from June through September, and honey as it becomes available. Share size will feed a family of 4-6 people, or 2-3 veggie-loving adults.

The cost is $450 for 18 weeks -- the equivalent of $25 of produce each week. With the addition of White Violet Center's high tunnel, some cool-weather crops may be available for purchase in October depending on weather conditions.

Registration will be accepted until April 30. This program is a great way to establish a vital link between the food eaten, the people who grow it and the land that nourished it.

Contact Candace Minster to register, or to receive more information, at 812-535-2935 or by e-mail at cminster@spsmw.org.
