Shares available in area garden

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

WEST TERRE HAUTE -- Weekly and bi-weekly shares in the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods are still available for the 2012 garden season.

White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence, is once again offering the opportunity to Wabash Valley residents.

CSA shareholders will receive enough variety of organically grown seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs each week to feed a small family, or two veggie-loving adults.

Garden plans call for growing traditional favorites such as onions, tomatoes, salad greens, spinach, potatoes, green beans, green onions, eggplant, cabbage, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, sweet peas, beets, mustard greens, asparagus, radishes, fresh herbs, carrots, peppers and more.

White Violet Center plans to have up to 50 shares available for the 2012 season.

Cost of a full share is $450. Weekly baskets will be available from late May through September.

A half-share is offered for $250. Those who sign up for the option will get a basket every two weeks. Also, shareholders who agree to volunteer to work in the garden for a certain number of hours will receive a discount.

The CSA program will have three weekly pick-up sites, including one at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, one at 113 S. 19th St., Terre Haute, and another Caboodle Cupcakes, 3419 S. Seventh St., Terre Haute.

Checks should be made payable to White Violet Center for Eco-Justice and should be mailed to White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, 1 Sisters of Providence, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Ind., 47876.

For more information, contact Candace Minster, garden manager, at cminster@spsmw.org, or at 812-535-2933.
