Sweetwater Organic Community Farm offers CSA memberships for 2011-2012 season beginning April 1st

"Through hands-on programs, visitors and members of all ages practice appropriate land stewardship and learn sustainable agriculture techniques. CSAs establish a direct partnership between farmers and consumers, allowing members to share the risks and rewards of farming," says Sweetwater's program director Andrea Harms.

CSA Memberships are $760 for a Full Membership (picking up a "share" every week for 30 weeks), and $425 for a Half Membership (picking up every other week.)

On Sundays (Nov.-May), Sweetwater holds a weekly Sunday market, offering their certified organic produce as well as unique products from green vendors and local artisans, and live local music acts.
