Buy fresh produce through a local CSA

July 6, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Summer is the perfect time to create healthy, fresh eating habits! The university is working with local farms to offer Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs on or near campus. Get fresh, straight-from-the-farm produce by purchasing a “share” in a local farm, then pick up your fresh produce each week. A “share” typically consists of a box or basket of farm-fresh seasonal vegetables.
