Customizable CSA Pick-up in Villa Park
We’re excited to announce that we’ll hosting a CSA pick-up for Montalbano Farms at our Villa Park home, Thursdays June through November. Our friends Rob and Christina grow certified organic vegetables in nearby Sandwich, IL, and are offering fun twist to the CSA model: customizable shares. Check out this link for more details. In short, you purchase a share and have an amount of “produce dollars” to spend through the season. Place your order (define what goes in your box based on what’s available) on Thursday and the following week you pick up your customized share!
Kim to MC Farmer Talent Show
Kim will again MC the FUN CSA Farmer Talent Show at Chicago’s Hideout on March 15. Come on out for a good time!
Also check out the Good Food Festival on March 13–15. The line-up of speakers and schedule is up for your review (see this link). Thursday focuses on financing, Friday focuses on trade, school food and policy, and Saturday offers a wide range of themes for everyone! #GFFChi
We hope everyone is enjoying the snow (go sledding!) and feeling excitement for spring that will surely come!
Kim and Rachel
