In 2007, RTI International proudly hosts the RTI-Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program within Durham's Research Triangle Park! This farm delivery program is one of the innovative ways that RTI employees are improving their quality of life and health.
In this program, the employees of Research Triangle Park (RTP) can individually sign up with six local farmers to receive fresh farm products delivered directly to RTP. We began as a CSA educational model in 2002 with help from our friends at NC Cooperative Extension and the Center for Environmental Farming Systems. Now RTI International has become the first major organization in the United States to develop a company-wide, volunteer effort to support local & organic CSA farmers! Please visit our webpage for more details.
Participating RTI-CSA farmers will have extra products (flowers, baked goods, bath & body products) for sale to RTP employees every Thursday, beginning in late April, from 4PM to 6PM. Please stop by and support these local sustainable farms!
Look for our 'FRESH PRODUCE TODAY' & 'CSA PICK UP' road signs at intersection of Cornwallis Road and East Institute Drive. Please Come Say Hello!
