Announcement: Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fair on March 8, 2014


Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fair
Saturday, March 8, 12:00-3:00 pm
at Boynton Middle School, 1601 North Cayuga Street, Ithaca

What is CSA? Learn about this partnership between consumers and farmers, and how it can benefit you! More than 20 CSA farmers serving Tompkins, Seneca, Cayuga, Tioga, Chenango, and Schuyler Counties will be on hand to talk with consumers about their farms and CSA programs. In addition to the traditional vegetable CSA, attendees will find fruits, berries, baked goods, meat, eggs, herbs and herbal products. All participants will be entered in a drawing for a variety of door prizes donated by the farms. Free admission, plus activities to keep the kids busy, and space to sit and review farm information. For more information, call Avi Miner at CCE-Tompkins, 607-272-2292 or email agm32@cornell.edu .
