Looking for a convenient, affordable way to eat local, organic veggies all winter long while also supporting your local economy? This year, WellWorks is teaming up with Green Edge Organic Gardens to bring Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares to campus.
Through CSA, community members may purchase a "share" of a farm for the growing season in return for a weekly or bi-weekly portion of the harvest throughout the season.
It is an opportunity for community to help the local economy by receiving fresh organic produce, even through the cold winter months.
The Athens Hills Winter CSA not only includes nutritious organic vegetables, but local fruit, milk, bread and more.
Shares are available for pick-up at the following locations: Ohio University Human Resources, Athens Community Center, Green Edge Farm, Harmony Chiropractic or Hyacinth Bean Florist.
A limited number of CSA shares are still available. For more information, click here.
