PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center Teams Up For A 2nd Year With Whatcom County Farmers
St. Joseph Medical Center and 10 Whatcom County farms have teamed up for a second year to form a CSA subscription service to offer caregivers convenient access to locally grown fruits and vegetables.
What is it?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) creates a direct link between farmers and consumers. Households purchase a “share” of the farm’s harvest, and receive in exchange a weekly bounty of fresh picked produce as it becomes available throughout the growing season.
Contents vary from week to week, season to season, and include the very best of what can be grown at any given time of year. All the vegetables and berries are certified organic, or transitioning to organic. The tree fruit is grown with integrated pest management practices (IPM).
How it Works
- Weekly deliveries and convenient pick-up ath the hospital main campus and at PHMG/Cordata and South Campus.
- Cost per share is $25/week for 20 weeks, totaling $500
- Half is due on signup; remainder due by June 1. A special payment plan option is available on a limited basis. Contact Cheryl Thornton for details 360-815-4343.
- Begins the second week of June and goes through the third week of October.
Subscriptions are limited.
