Hello neighbors and friends,

Spring is almost here and the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program of CVC Urban Farms will be back in full swing shortly. We are busy now preparing the land for planting and will be selecting varieties of vegetable and fruit crops soon for the next season.

Please join us for a short gathering this Sunday to help make plans for the year. We would like input from our subscribers from last year, as well as those that would consider getting fresh, affordable locally grown food weekly this season. Items we will discuss include pricing, service hours, and the new Brown Middle School site.

New CSA subsciptions will be on sale at the meeting, with disctribution of food beginning April 12th, or earlier (depending on how fast the ground warms up). Feel free to forward this message and invite others to attend. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday. –
