Sustainability at Meredith College
CSA vegetable and flower baskets still available
Beausol Gardens has a few baskets still available.
We again offer the opportunity to participate in a season of community supported agriculture (CSA). Beausol Gardens delivers baskets of vegetables, herbs and flowers directly to campus throughout the growing season (May-September). This project is tied to the Greenprint goal of increasing availability of local and organic food choices on campus. Details follow.
Beausol Gardens is a farm in Pittsboro, NC run by Harry LeBlanc that grows its food using biodynamic and organic principles since 1997. CSA is, foremost, a community: People joining to support a local farmer in producing food for their tables. CSA brings community members and farmers together in relationships of mutual support based on an annual commitment to one another. This commitment helps ensure the survival of small farms, a local food supply, and of agricultural land. http://beausol.com/
