CSA's at Clover

Sunday, February 19, 2012 | Posted by Alex
Exciting things happening at Clover Food Lab. Here's word from former Feast Mass organizer Lucia Jazayeri at Clover:

"CSA stands for community-supported agriculture. Basically, you fork over $ now, farmers use it to plant crops, and during the summer, you get a share of the harvest in the form of a box of vegetables. Problem is, CSAs are often really hard to find out about, inconvenient to pick up, and so are not nearly as accessible or as available as they should be. We think we can put CSAs front and center.

So we're trying a little experiment: for the month of February, we've turned the Clover restaurant in Inman Square (1075 Cambridge St) into a CSA information center. You can come to the restaurant, read about 5 different CSAs, and sign up for one you like (or that fits your schedule). You can even sign up to find a friend to split your share with.

Every weekday from June-October, a different farm will drop shares at Clover. We're offering the space for free, and we're excited that 5 of our favorite farms (Red Fire Farm, The Food Project, Lindentree Farm, Marshall's Farm, and Drumlin Farm*) are joining us for this experiment. A couple of these farms have never done CSA drop-offs before, a few are veterans at it. In the first 2 weeks, we've had about 60 people sign up, which means we could already be funneling over $30,000 towards these hard-working Mass farmers!

If you want to learn more, stop by Clover on Friday night. We're having a party with all 5 farmers. Come by, meet the farmers, ask questions about CSAs, and sign up for shares if you haven't already. It's supposed to be a snowy night – all the better to imagine future summer days filled w/vegetables.
