The aim of O'k CSA is to explore and have fun sharing connections between garden-farming and art education, and the practice of ecological design and thinking.
O'k CSA is focused on creatively and intelligently, designing ways to live wisely and well, and that means not just learning the "HOW-to's", but also what it takes and then the doing of it. The focus of our work and passion is teaching, learning, experiencing, making art, community garden-farming and ecological education.
Hello friends of O'k CSA Cooperative,
It's time to get our final numbers together for the 2017 Spring and Summer CSA shares! Cut off date for registration is coming up, February 28, 2017.
It's also time for me to come out of Gramma-land (for a minute) and Winter-Studio hibernation to pay rent for O'k CSA's headquarters on Second St., make final seed orders and get the ole' farm truck insurance paid.
BIG news is that this winter, I've been working to complete a whole BIG bunch of garden-farming work in my studio: a series of garden-farming and permaculture inspired story books and curriculum guides for little and big people. This work has been on my drawing board in one form or another for several years, and this winter w. my downstate travel to tend to my daughter, Allison's needs and my grand.babe, Josie, I was able to take it along and delve deeper into that work. I'm excited to share this w. you all as a part of the 2017 seasons' "art-share"! I'll keep you posted on the (cross my fingers) printing/publication dates!
Here’s the info on our share offerings for 2017:
