Isles' Urban Harvest CSA
(Trenton,NJ)We still have a few shares left, so subscriptions are on a pro-rated basis! Contact Jim for pricing. *********************************** What is Urban Harvest? Urban Harvest is an extension of the agriculture program at Isles YouthBuild Institute in Trenton, New Jersey. Supporting Urban Harvest with a donation helps fund internships for students in the training program while providing fresh produce to you as a token of our appreciation. You can feel good about supporting our youth and feel good about what you eat at the same time. Our History Beginning in 2009 with a quarter-acre garden adjacent to the school, students planted, tended and harvested produce for their families and staff, and donated to a local food pantry. Inspired by their success, we have decided to expand the training program by teaching the students practical business and marketing skills. How does it work? Contact us for registration information. Beginning in June and lasting through the end of November, your Urban Harvest share can be picked up weekly at the location, day, and time indicated on your confirmation. What can I expect? We will offer seasonal vegetables, herbs, and small fruits along with recipes and other helpful information about making the most of your share. Each week's share will supplement an average sized family's produce needs with a selection of different items. In keeping with Isles' mission and our desire to foster environmental stewardship in our students, we grow all of our crops using sustainable practices. This includes not using chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or insecticides.
