SORRY - THE CSA IS SOLD OUT THIS YEAR.
Have you ever joined a CSA to get your food? If not, you need to try it! A Community Supported Agriculture program (or "CSA") is a way to invest in a local family farm by buying a share of the farm's crops in advance for the coming season. You then get a box full of fresh locally-grown produce each week throughout the season.
Consider all the ways being in a CSA will make you feel great:
★ Knowing exactly where your food comes from!
★ Supporting the local economy!
★ Minimizing waste and pollution!
★ Eating the freshest, most wholesome food possible, and the resulting health benefits!
★ Putting your money into a community-building food delivery model instead of the ultra-destructive centralized corporate food system!

Here's a little bit about Earthly Edibles and their CSA program:
"Hello and thanks for checking out our CSA. We're a certified organic farm located in Korbel, just across the river from Blue Lake. Our farm has been in operation for 11 years now, and this is year 5 of our CSA. Because we straddle that inland/coast microclimate, we're able to provide a steady flow of coastal crops: lettuce, broccoli, beans, etc, through the CSA season, and ending with both coastal and hot weather crops: dry farmed tomatoes, melons and corn, etc. We offer two CSA sized box's, both for 22 week seasons: half shares ($350.00) feed 1-2 people/week, full family shares ($550.00) 3-4 people/week.

P.S. - If you're saying to yourself, "Hey, what about the Luna Farm pick-ups?" we're sorry to report that we won't be able to host two CSAs as planned, due to logistical issues.
