Join our O’k CSA Cooperative, Summer 2016 membership info

IMG_7510

Hello Very O’k friends and families,

Welcome to the 2016 O’k CSA growing season!

It’s that time of year again—the snow is no longer piled HIGH and we’ve begun celebrating the “Year of Monkey” according to the Chinese New Year. (More on monkey-biz below.) and it is, in fact, the beginning of our 2016 growing season.

In addition to breaking ground w. Levi and Brenda Meeuwenberg out at their Realeyes Homestead property for our newest garden-farm site, this year’s membership options have changed up a bit, as we suggested last fall that they may.

 

Here they are–NEW for 2016:

  • BECOME a O’k CSA Cooperative Member/Grower!  For folks who have been or interested in hosting a garden-farm site, have an option to take on their own garden-growing space if they so wish with a minimal input by myself and the O’k CSA garden-farm interns at the beginning of the season to get you off to a great start.   Member/Growers will tend, gather and deliver their weekly harvest to the Peace Patch garden site on Friday mornings, in exchange for a CSA share box from other member/growers.  Additionally, for Member/Growers, I would offer a consultation for a fee, which would familiarize you w. the garden-farm site’s beds already in production and/or cover a spring consultation and garden bed design plan, also offering an opportunity for you to order plant starts from our stash. Fee negotiable/cost of plant starts TBA.
  • BECOME or continue to be one of our O’k CSA Co–op Share-holders.  This year, we are offering Full shares @ $450 and Half-size shares @ $275 of fresh vegetables, herbs and flower bouquets,  beginning June 15th, through September, with pick-up on Friday’s at our Peace Patch Garden at the corner of 7th & Oak, in Traverse City, Michigan.
  • BECOME a O’k CSA Sponsor and help grow the “green-collar” jobs we offer to youth 18 years and older, by helping to provide an apprenticeship and mentoring relationship with educational opportunities for two positions in the 2016 growing season.

Please share our good news with others that you think may wish to join us as growers, members or sponsors of our community and neighborhood garden-farming CSA.

OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT OUR O’k CSA COOPERATIVE:

ALSO, you are warmly invited to attend a special evening of music, pie and permaculture sharing –on Sunday April 3rd in Traverse City–More info by clicking on here: Seth Bernard & Friends, Fundraiser for Permaculture Design Course.

That’s all for now. Adios, and see you real soon!
