Student Gardens Offers Subscriptions

The Andrews University Student Gardens is gearing up for another season of their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. The program, which will run from early June through mid-October, allows community members to sign up for a weekly delivery of fresh local produce brought right to their door.

Each basket includes at least six types of fresh produce selected from more than 120 varieties, such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, broccoli, corn, kale, carrots, beans, onions and cucumbers. As add-on options, subscribers can also receive deliveries of fresh flowers and fruit, all grown in the Andrews University Student Gardens. The fruit basket includes blackberries, raspberries, apples, peaches and melons as seasonally available. Cut flowers or potted bouquets are offered as seasonally available. Herbs may also be included as they are available, such as basil, chives, mint, oregano, sage and more. Weekly newsletters accompany the baskets with fresh recipes and helpful information.

Delivery is free within a 20-mile radius of the Andrews University campus and will arrive on Thursdays. Those who prefer may pick up their share on Fridays at the local farm stand on Old U.S. 31 next to Neighbor to Neighbor.

Prices for participation in the CSA program for 18 weeks of delivery are as follows:

Full share of produce: $600
Medium share: $450
Solo share: $350
Flowers: Additional $60
Fruits: Additional $120
