Adelante offers weekly produce shares
Adelante Mujeres is providing Community Supported Agriculture shares again this year through its Sustainable Agriculture Program.
Local residents can sign up and pay in advance for 18 weeks of fresh produce through Adelantes CSA. Customers receive local fruits and vegetables grown by Latino farmers in Adelante Agricultura each week from June to October.
Customers can support local farmers up front during the time of year when they incur the most expenses.
Full shares, which include produce to feed three to four people a week, are $540. Half shares, which are enough to feed one to two people per week, are $324.
Full shares with SNAP require a $40 deposit and $25 weekly payments. Half shares with SNAP require a $25 deposit with $15 weekly payments.
To become a member of the Adelante Mujeres CSA, visit adelantemujeres.org/agriculture or call 503-992-0078, Ext. 302. The deadline for CSA member subscription and payment is May 1.
