Augsburg CSA Drop Site

submitted by gehrken@augsburg.edu

This summer the Augsburg community will have the wonderful opportunity to purchase fresh produce that will be delivered to Augsburg College in the form of a CSA share beginning mid-June. The share will contain a variety of seasonally appropriate produce. One can expect to find treats such as basil, carrots, cilantro, sweet corn, potatoes, peppers and tomatoes at some point over the summer. Delivery begins mid-June and lasts for 18 weeks or through mid-October. The food is grown on a 140 acre farm near Plato, MN. Purchasing local produce helps to support the local economy. The farmers who grow this produce are devoted to using only natural botanical and biological methods to control pests. They use other sustainable farming practices such as biodiversity, crop rotation, cover cropping and natural fertilizers to deliver healthy and nutritious produce to the table. More information about the operation and where to order can be found at https://www.tangletowngardens.com/tangletown-gardens/csa/
or you can reach me, Nell, at gehrken@augsburg.edu.

Upon ordering, enter promo code AUGGIES to receive a gift card!
