WEI provides a box of organically certified fruits, vegetables and herbs (about a full grocery bag’s worth, on average, per week) for 18 weeks to our CSA members from mid-June to mid-October. Member CSA shares are picked up at our farm in the North Branch, MN area or from one of our drop site partners located through out the Twin Cities and North Branch areas. Our members pay an annual subscription fee and share with us the harvest, joys, rewards and inherent risks that are all a part of farming.
As a MOSA Certified Organic Farm and Orchard, we submit to a rigorous third party verification process to ensure that we use no petrochemical insecticides, herbicides, fungicides or GMO/treated seeds. As the Minnesota Growing Power Regional Outreach Training Center, we have expanded our greenhouse capacity with the addition of several Growing Power, Inc.-style hoophouses, increasing our season extension capacity.
We always encourage our members to become part of the farm experience by visiting or volunteering at the Women’s Environmental Institute on Amador Hill. Please call (651) 583-0705 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to join us as a visitor or volunteer.
