The folks at Grow Portland (http://www.growportland.org) have announced a new way for Portlanders to order fresh produce from local growers. Read on for details:
The Growers Alliance (http://www.growportland.org/growers-alliance) is a grower-led marketing collective managed by Grow Portland. The Growers Alliance was created in 2010 to help immigrant, refugee, and beginning American farmers reach direct markets with their produce. We’re offering a new Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) pick-up spot at the Urban Farm Store on SE Belmont this summer.
To join our CSA, Portland residents sign-up and pay in advance of the season to receive a weekly box of freshly harvested, organically grown produce from our growers. Our season is 28 weeks long (May-November), and we offer different sized boxes of produce depending on the family size. These details can be found in our 2012 CSA brochure: http://www.growportland.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/2012_GP_CSA_Brochure.pdf.
