[SDCPJ] CSA with Peace Garden produce!

Do you want *very* local fresh produce?
From a garden you can easily visit? 
And that "cultivates" social justice and youth skills?

The Peace Garden (if you hadn't heard) recently partnered with Second Chance - an organization that has a job training program for youth who have had some interaction with the juvenile justice/court system.

And it's now ready for a Summer CSA!!

See below for the full info and how to sign-up.
Join our pick-up at the Peace Campus! 
3850 Westgate Place, 92105 (listed as Church of the Brethren)

SECOND CHANCE SUMMER CSA
JULY 13TH – SEPT. 14TH


What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and it's a great way for people to buy farm fresh goods directly from their local farmer (or urban farmer in our case!). When you join our CSA, you'll get a box of fresh produce every week for 10 weeks, all grown by our youth!  You'll also receive a newsletter in your bag filled with youth and garden updates as well as delicious recipe ideas.

Who does the CSA benefit?

The Second Chance Youth Garden runs a six week job training program for youth that have had involvement with the juvenile justice system. In hands-on garden based training, youth learn to seed, cultivate, transplant and harvest the fruits of their labor. Upon completion of program, each youth receives individual case management to work toward high school graduation, paid internship opportunities, part/full time work, and higher education. Each CSA subscription helps us employ and pay our youth, as well as benefits our local community and the land!

How do I get my CSA bag?

We require a minimum of five customers to start any new drop off locations at office buildings/organizations. All of our summer bags will be delivered to the following locations – Jacobs Center, Qualcomm and the First Church of the Brethren.

How much does a share cost?

The cost of our CSA share is $300 or $30/week for the ten week season.  If you are a resident of City Heights or Southeast San Diego (the neighborhoods our youth program serves), the cost is $250 for the 10 weeks or $25/week.  You are welcome to split the cost (and the contents of your bag) with a friend or neighbor and give us two checks for the sum of $300 or $250 however we do not currently have ½ shares as an option. Each bag contains 8-10 items/week.

Ready to Sign Up??
