You’re invited to join a great group of Veg, Fruit and Folks at our Spring Open-House and learn more about our 2015  Summer O’k CSA Cooperative!

JOIN US at our Spring Open-House and 2015 Summer CSA kick-off and potluck:

Friday, May 29th, 6 to 8 pm, at our DIGs garden-farm site,

510 Second St., Traverse City, Michigan

Bring a dish to share and your own tableware, we’ll be dining picnic style in our backyard around a campfire, if weather permits!

O’k CSA believes that food is art and art is food.

In 2005, our idea of “sharing” what we grow began in the winter months by sharing artwork, with
a series of drawings, paintings and an annual “Year of…” calendar, featuring a Mid-Western version of the Chinese New Year calendar.

It’s now 10 years later and our unique Traverse City based, urban CSA continues to share local and regional Michigan artworks, alongside of good, healthy, pesticide & chemical-free produce. Each of our gardens are designed with permanent growing beds, and reflect a beautiful nature inspired, organizational structure following permaculture design practices.

As the summer season approaches, with just a few shifts and twists and turns, the O’k CSA Studio and garden-farm sites are gearing up for another great season, and we invite you to join this great, little, local community gathering of folks who care about the food they eat and act on the urge to be supportive of the arts!

SIGN-UP for a Summer Season of great company, good food and art. Check out info on our website where you can sign up online here:
