The Global Gardens Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is offering a late summer farm share available now through Oct. 6 for weekly, on-campus pick up. BroncoFit’s partnership with Global Gardens offers the option to purchase shares in a local farm and pick up produce on campus once a week.
The Boise State community are served by Hadija and Mariamu’s Farm, run by sisters Mariamu and Hadija who are experts in growing a variety of vegetables including carrots, onions, tomatoes and several types of greens. Community members help support farms like Mariamu’s Family Farm by paying a certain amount for a share of its produce during the growing season.
Items delivered in August might include: cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, corn, peppers, eggplant, basil, tomatillos, onions, leeks, cabbage, kale, Swiss chard, green beans or potatoes.
Boxes in September and early October could contain: tomatoes, zucchini, tomatillos, cucumbers, corn, peppers, eggplant, melons, onions, leeks, winter squash, pumpkins, lettuce, spinach or kale.
Registration is open now until Aug. 27 for the late summer boxes. The number of shares is limited to 15 and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Full shares (8-12 items) are $30/week and half shares (4-5 items) are $20/week. Pickups will be on Wednesdays from 3:30-6 p.m. at the Chrisway Annex. For more information, visit the CSA FAQ.
