What: A CSA Farm Share Fair in Arlington! CSA farmers will be on hand to tell you how their CSA works, what they are growing this year and how you can get a share of their harvest.

When: Thursday, February 25, 6:00-7:30 PM

Where: 50 Paul Revere Road, Arlington, MA at the Park Avenue Congregational Church in Arlington Heights, the Parish Hall.

Who: Over twenty CSA farms have been invited to participate. Most of these farms distribute CSA shares in Arlington, Bedford, Belmont, Lexington, parts of Cambridge and Somerville, Medford, Watertown, Winchester, and other nearby towns. Several are community farms and provide educational programming for kids and adults during the growing season.

Why: If you haven’t lined up your CSA share yet, the Farm Share Fair is a great place to learn about what’s available. You will be able to sign up for summer and winter CSA shares at the Fair. For those of you who have already purchased your 2010 CSA share, this is a great opportunity to say hello to your farmer. We are also inviting farmers to bring and sell their produce to the Fair, so you may want to bring your shopping bags!

Want to help? The Farm Share Fair committee is looking for volunteers who want to help make this Fair a success. Contact GrettaAnderson [at] if you’d like to help in any way. A planning meeting is scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday, January 31.

Stay tuned. I will send out more information, including a list of the farms and organizations who will be attending, in the next week or so.
