Signed Up for My Share of Fresh Veggies

After a reminder by a story that Sun reporter Brynn Grimley wrote about the red-hot sale of Kitsap Community Supported Agriculture shares, I just sent off my check for this year’s share.

I participated in one last year with a Silverdale farm. I paid a set amount upfront and was able to pick up fresh veggies grown on the farm every week at my local farmer’s market. The one I joined that also had a plus side in that he regularly brought over fruit from Eastern Washington that I incorporated in my share. I had fresh fruit and veggies through the summer and into fall.

If you’re interested in learning mor about CSA’s and/or local farms, the Kitsap Agriculture Alliance has a web site, They will have a meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday March 10, at the Norm Dicks Center, Bremerton.
