The season is off to a fast a furious beginning… lucky with the weather and great and engaged students learning as we plan, prep and implement our small-farm production. This year we will be offering 15 half-CSA shares to Northeast WI Technical College- Green Bay’s staff and faculty. Last year we had great support from the staff. Some CSA members got involved because they wanted to support the Sustainable Food and Ag Systems program and internship. Others joined to have access to our great produce.
We are also building a mobile Farm Stand, to sell fresh harvested goods on-site and will be setting up a weekly farmers market inside NWTC’s Commons throughout the growing season. This opportunity gives our interns the chance to understand the logistics and marketing that are involved to run a successful market and CSA program.
Our blog gives a voice to the many to the students in our program and beginning farmer interns of Bounty Garden. Follow us throughout the 2017 season!
