You are in luck! Tufts is hosting a pilot CSA during the Spring semester.
General interest meeting on Monday, January 30th at 9pm in Eaton 209!
What’s a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. This means that you buy a share
in a farm at the beginning of a season (in our case, the beginning of a semester) and
you get produce delivered to you here. Shareholders pick up weekly distributions of
fresh vegetables and fruit in a convenient place on the campus.
Who’s the farm?
We’ve chosen to work with Enterprise Farm in Hadley for a variety of reasons.
They are a local farm with experience and have delivered to other academic
organizations. They are willing to work with us during the school year, beyond the
New England growing season because they partner with other organic farms along
the Atlantic seaboard when New England fields are asleep. They are flexible and
willing to work with our academic schedule. You can visit their web site at:
How much does it cost and how much do I get?
You will be signing up for the entire spring semester. When you look at these numbers, think about your weekly grocery bill and what you won’t have to buy at the store. For more information on how much food this is, visit:
