Help A Farm

Some of us buy vegetables at supermarkets, some of go to farmers markets. But over the years, we’ve known quite a few Verona families who’ve bought vegetables directly from a farm, often as its shareholders through a concept known as community-supported agriculture.

Though the growing season is just about over, you can get a taste of what a CSA is like this Saturday, September 25, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Genesis Farm in Blairstown. The farm, and Slow Food Northern New Jersey are sponsoring “Break Ground & Break Bread”. The organizers hope to  bring a mob of people up to the farm to do everything from dig sweet potatoes to comb the fields for crops that can be donated to food pantries. If you want to attend, you need to get a $5 ticket, which basically covers lunch at the farm. There are more details here. You should wear work clothes, boots or sneakers, and bring gloves, sunscreen, and a water bottle.
