Mount garden takes on a community focus

The community may share in produce from the Mount St.
Benedict Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Garden
this summer.

In a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) garden, the
public has the opportunity to buy memberships in the
garden. For a fee, paid in advance, members share in
the risks and rewards of farming contingent on weather
conditions and availability of produce. In return they
receive about 15 weekly deliveries of a bushel of
fresh organic garden produce over the course of the
season. The bushels include whatever vegetables are
ready at that time. All produce is harvested at just
the right time for maximum quality. It is, then,
carefully packed and kept cool until picked up by the
shareholder. Members are welcome to visit the garden
and, if possible, help with the gardening.

Michael Klawitter, an accomplished professional
organic farmer from Euclid, will be the master
gardener. UMC professor of horticulture, Dr. Melinda
McClusky, will be involved to a large degree with the
garden. She will research the production of the
produce by experimenting with tunnel gardening and
various mulches

If interested in this project and would like more
information, contact the CSA Garden at 281-3441.
