The CSA Has Begun! (With Links to MHOF and Dismas House)

I must admit.  The beginning of this year's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share has added a bit of spring to my step over the past day or so.  It has been a busy time.  School is ending.  Summer services are beginning.  There is other stuff to.  I look at my metaphorical plate these days and find it close to full.  I bet some of you are feeling the same way.

Last year the CSA buyer's group at the church was quite a bit larger.  Some folks split off to form another group.  Others just decided it wouldn't work for them.  That's OK.  I have to say, though, that it works for me!  It is amazing what a bag of local organic veggies can do for one's spirit. It elevates our minds and joins us to the ground. Last night we had a salad that didn't even know it was picked yet.   May there be more salads like that to come...

Here is a link to the Many Hands Organic Farm where our share comes from.  They do good work, both with their veggies and with Dismas House.   Here also is a link to the Many Hands Sustainability Center. When choosing a farm, we felt that this was the one where our money went farthest.  We are very, very happy with our choice!

Ya know...I believe there are a few slots left for the Framingham pick-up site.  You might want to check it out.  After all, every Burbanian should eat more vegetables...


  1. Not that CSA Scott... ;)

    ...but I should probably go back and spell it out...
