Community Supported Agriculture: All Your Organic Produce For $30 A Week!!!
This is the part I really like, if the member picks up their box at the farmer's market they can switch out produce from their box for different produce. Can't make the farmer's market on Saturday? No problem!!! JBG has pick up sites all around the city. This link has the pick up sites and schedule. http://www.jbgorganic.com/sites/ All of the produce is picked, packed and delivered to the locations on the same day. How often can we say that about what we eat! Talk about FRESH and packed with nutrients.
This program, Community Supported Agriculture, offers the farm a "consistent market" and provides the member with a discount. A four week minimum is required and cost $32 per week for a total of $128. There is an additional $2 per week discount for a 10 week commitment. That is just $30 a week for all your organic produce! I'm wondering if we need 2 boxes but I'll start with one and let you know. Free range eggs and organic fair-trade coffee are available for $10 more per week. I have found a better deal on eggs at the farmers market. Here is a link to join the farm. http://www.jbgorganic.com/join/ I just did!
