From one of our members who receives a subsidy:
“Your vegetables have been the most crispy, fresh and better taste to eat than what I used to get from Super Markets. Whenever I got to eat vegetables from your garden, I feel more satisfying and happier because I know they are organic. I am overjoyed for this good news of continuing to be able to get the CSA vegetables with such affordable price. Million Thanks Meredith”
We believe all people deserve access to great food grown with highest respect for all of creation. Food is not a commodity. It’s sacred. When grown with care and respect for people and planet, it does cost more to produce than that which is produced in the industrial system. Some of our neighbors need our help to afford this food. In 2020/2021, we’re reserving 25 % of our shares for families who will receive subsidies. We take donations, Granite Springs contributes, and the families themselves pay about half the cost of their share. If you want to help our neighbors purchase a CSA share, please email Meredith at firstname.lastname@example.org telling the amount you’d like to contribute, and we’ll send you an invoice to pay online. Or, you can mail us a check in any amount. Thank you!
