If you've been wondering what is this week's JKT's favourite thing, here's the answer from Holly!
"My favourite thing is CSA share with Wheelbarrow Farm - You basically buy a share in the harvest. Every other week I get a beautiful box of freshly picked seasonal and locally grown vegetables. Check it out!"
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It's a system of growing and distributing organic produce that restores the link between farmers and the surrounding communities. Find out more about it here.
How does it work on Wheelbarrow Farm?
"By joining our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program you become a member and own a "share" of the year's harvest. CSA "shareholders" pay for their produce before the start of the growing season, which helps the farm with start-up funds to purchase seeds, and supplies. As a member of a CSA, you know get to know your farmer and exactly where and how your food has been grown!"
YOU CAN NOW SIGN UP FOR 2021 CSA TO RESERVE YOUR SHARE EARLY!
And you know how it goes... shop local, support local!
