Hey all,
Are you interested in receiving fresh, local veggies every week? Have 
you ever considered joining a CSA?  Do you want to support local 
agriculture?  The Intervale Center?s Food Hub CSA is piloting a student 
share that will be offered the fall semester of 2010 to off-campus and 
grad students.  This share will run for 13 weeks, following the 
semester?s schedule, starting the week of September 6th and running 
through the week of December 6th.  We are offering two different share 
choices to students this fall.

The Basic Student Share costs a total of $225 and will showcase the 
diverse Vermont harvest, offering a range of 7-10 vegetables along with 
a few delicious melons, apples and cider.  The share will easily feed 
one or two veggie-friendly students.

The Deluxe Student Share will cost a total of $300, an average of $23 
per week.  This plan is identical to the Basic Student Share but 
includes 1 dozen eggs from Jericho Settlers Farm?s pastured chickens 
every other week.  In addition, you will receive 1 half-litre of maple 
syrup from Dragonfly Sugarworks, 1 quart of sauerkraut from Arethusa 
Farm, and 1 six ounce tub of pesto from Bella Farm, each delivered once 
during the course of your share.
Students need to sign-up before May 31st in order to receive your share 
at the onset of the 2010 fall semester.

If you are interested and would like more information or if you would 
like to sign up for a share, please visit the Food Hub website:
