It’s spring at Persephone Farm, the peas are growing and the flowers are blooming bright and beautiful. Our CSA is still welcoming members for the coming season. In addition to a bounty of fresh vegetables and flowers, members save 10-15% when purchasing a share from Persephone.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a collaboration between grower and eater, rather than a mere exchange of dollars for vegetables. We aim to provide 10-15% more value over the season than the cost of similar produce at other local outlets. It is our way of thanking you for paying in advance, which helps the farm at the beginning of the season to defray the cost of seeds, tools and other inputs. To extend the season, subscribers also receive a 10% discount at our Bainbridge Island Farmer’s Market stand, open early April through late December.
Flowers are another special part of a Persephone CSA share. As ecological farmers we appreciate our flower beds and borders for not only their beauty, but also for their ability to attract precious pollinators and beneficial insects.
Flowers help us add diversity to our crop rotations, and are essential to our farm’s sustainability. Our CSA subscribers tell us that choosing their flower bouquet is a high point of their week, beautiful selection – and beneficial to the bees too!
