CSA Week #19

Oh my Garlic! It’s Week 19!

That means there’s only one week left of CSA, and we can’t believe it!

It’s been a great summer with all of you. We’ve enjoyed meeting you at LUSH and at Amara Farm and sending you bins of veggies to Tahsis and Creekside Commons. It has been a wonderful summer of connecting with the people who eat what we grow. We actually think about you as we’re harvesting, and it feels great to know the people that we are doing this work for!

How ’bout an organic local chicken instead of a turkey this weekend?

IMG_6805This past weekend, my friend Katie roasted us up a chicken for dinner from the Birds & the Beans. Holy doodle, was it tasty!

They have an assortment of sizes, ranging from 2.5 to 6.5 lbs, and are now vacuum packed and frozen.

If you’d like some more chicken, please contact the Birds and the Beans to arrange a time for pick-up.  Wednesday evenings or Saturdays around 2:00pm work well them, but they can certainly be flexible!
