CSA aka Community Supported Agriculture

If you’re tired of grocery shopping, spending too much money, harming the environment, eating bland food… then Slow Food has the PERFECT solution for you!

We are SUPER lucky to have a CSA partnership with Ashley Howard and his family from Heaven’s Harvest Farm. Heaven’s Harvest is a local farm out in New Braintree (about 45 min outside of Boston) which provides farmshares to many communities in the Boston area. Northeastern students can sign up to have a weekly box of fresh produce delivered to your doorstep (well, to the SJRC which is close enough, okay??). All you do is pay for the season’s boxes and then pick them up every Wednesday at the Social Justice Resource Center.

The SJRC is in the downstairs of 106 St. Stephens Street and pickup is available from 1pm onward. 

The prices for the boxes are as follows:

Small box (for 2 very hungry or 3 less hungry people) – $35/week. Medium box (for 3 very hungry or 4 less hungry people) – $45/week. Large box (for 4 very hungry or 5 less hungry people) – $55/week

Yes, those seem like large numbers, but if you share with friends you will definitely be saving money over comparable grocery store veggies.

If you have any questions about CSA, please come to a Slow Food NU meeting or contact Francesca Brecha (brecha.f@husky.neu.edu), the CSA Coordinator. Happy eating!
