Meadowlark Community Farm and Gundersen St. Joseph's partner to expand access to community supported agriculture

Monday, January 29, 2018

Meadowlark Community Farm and Gundersen St. Joseph’s partner to expand access to community supported agriculture.
 

 

Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a produce subscription program through local farms which provides farm-fresh produce on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. It's a great way to get high-quality, healthy produce on a regular basis and help support our local farmers.

Meadowlark Community Farm

Meadowlark Community Farm of Wonewoc has partnered with several pickup locations in the region including Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital and Clinics. "Many of our staff joined the Meadowlark CSA program last year and really enjoyed it," says Cheryl Vulstek, director of quality and education at Gundersen St. Joseph's. "Through the healthy neighbors coalition, we worked with Meadowlark to see if we could have Gundersen St. Joseph's listed as a community pick up location and help expand awareness of this program and the health benefits of eating farm fresh organic produce." 

Lauren Kreutzer from Meadowlark Community Farm will be hosting sign-up events in the cafeteria of Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 5 and Friday, Feb. 9 and the community is invited to drop in at any time during the event to sign up for the 2018 CSA share. 

Check with your health insurance provider to see if they provide rebates and other incentives for taking part in a CSA program from a Fairshare Coalition member, such as Meadowlark Community Farm.
