This year our emphasis in Community Supported Agriculture is on building community, You may recall me mentioning last fall that Ravensfield has need of more members in order to make the CSA effort worth doing. I welcome you to forward this page to friends and neighbours.

July-17-2013 mint, snow peas, potatoes, salad greensRavensfield provides Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Weekly Vegetable Boxes:
20 weeks of veggies from late June to end Oct.
Large shares-$600 per season, small shares $400.
Perth: Wednesday afternoons, delivered anywhere in Perth or on my route in to Perth
Kingston: Pickup at Kingston Market Saturday morning before noon

Imagine boxes full of delicious fresh organic veggies coming to your doorstep every week–it’s not that far away.

This year, our small boxes will have $20 worth of veggies (on average) and our large boxes  $30. We’ll go for the usual 20 weeks, starting sometime around mid-June. Leaf Lettuce, salad greens, garlic scapes, green onions. Mustard greens not shown.

Throughout the season we’ll have organic produce such as Beets, Carrots, Fiddleheads, Garlic, Herbs, Parsnips, Potatoes, Salad Greens, Tomatoes

I would like to send out an early bird box for May 22 or May 29 as well. That way you can enjoy fiddleheads and some of the early garden offerings which are  definitely passed by the time our main season starts   So there will be a total of 21 weeks times $20 or $30, plus a box deposit of $20 (refunded at end if all bins are returned):
