The farm "Henry Got Crops!" is run by Weavers Way staff working closely with students and teachers from Saul High School of Agriculture that not only brings food to the community, but also serves as an educational opportunity for students at Saul. The farm is located right on campus, and teachers and their classes are invited to learn about and partake in small scale, organic vegetable growing. This is one of the first high school-based CSAs in the country. There are many different opportunities for student involvement, ranging from hands-on work in the fields, to helping with community outreach, to doing applied research, budgeting, planning, and newsletter writing. As the busiest time of year for farming coincides with the high school's summer vacation, the farm also hires students for summer work opportunities, thereby providing job training experience and job placement right on school grounds. Our season is 24 weeks long, weather dependent. We offer a small ($400) and a large ($710) share. Pick ups are on site only. We offer staggered payments, working shares, and discounted shares. We also have you-pick available for shareholders. Often we partner with other local producers to offer additional products such as honey, flowers and meat.
