When you join a CSA, you join a community.
Without sounding too “mother earthy,” I’d like to say that I believe this community extends past the specific farm where your produce is grown to the broader community of CSA members everywhere. After all, aren’t we all like-minded souls who believe in eating locally, seasonally, organically? That’s why I’m helping spread the news about an event happening at Happy Heart Farm in Fort Collins.
This Saturday night they’re having a special fundraiser called “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and guests are invited to come in costume. Money raised will go toward Happy Heart’s Feeding the Families program, which provides local, seasonal, organic vegetable shares to low-income families in Fort Collins. The goal is to raise enough money to cover three additional families. Click here for more information on Happy Heart Farm’s Feeding the Families program. To RSVP, contact Claudia at 970-988-3464.
Incidentally, I’ve interviewed Bailey Stenson of Happy Heart Farm before and have always come away inspired. Her farm was the first CSA in Colorado and it continues to be a model for an organic, community-oriented way of living. A profile of her farm is available on my site; click here to be taken to it.
