CSA FARM SHARE DELIVERIES…Where is Your Food Grown? CSA Opportunity Right Here in Broadlands!
If you want the answer to be “right down the road”, then we have the connection to farmers for you. Every week from May through October we have food deliveries from three local farms. Deliveries include veggies, fruit, poultry, meat, eggs, milk, herbs, flowers, and fresh baked goods. We call it a whole diet community sponsored agriculture (or CSA). All you have to do is choose which farm(s) you want to use and pick up at a private residence in the community. It’s a unique service to our many residents looking for farm fresh, local, organic, and non-GMO food. So take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and select from the following farms to choose your weekly share deliveries:
FREE LITTLE LIBRARY…Available Now at the Nature Center: What is a Free Little Library? It is a small model of a building that looks similar to a fancy mailbox or bird house that is used for people in a community to share books with one another. Anyone can take a book, and anyone can leave a book. You do not need to officially check out the book or even to return the same book or the same number of books that you take. Because we are a Nature Center, our library will feature nature themed books and will be a Free Little Nature Library. Broadlands residents and other Broadlands Nature Center visitors will be able to stop by to donate nature themed books to the library or borrow books and return them or to keep them or pass them on. They will also be able to sign the library guest book. If you have any extra field guides or nature books you would like to donate to help us keep it stocked, you can leave them in the box outside the naturalist’s office in the Nature Center. You can learn more about the Little Free Library movement at littlefreelibrary.org/.
