The 2017 Pfeiffer Center CSA
The Pfeiffer Center's 2017 CSA offers 24 weekly pickups of our own freshly harvested, biodynamically raised vegetables, herbs and flowers from June 12 through November 20. Pickup is conveniently located on the Threefold Educational Center campus from 3:30 to 6:00pm. At our market-style CSA, shareholders pack their own boxes, choosing from a generous selection from the harvest of the day; a gardener is always on hand to assist and answer questions.
Shares cost $720-$960 (sliding scale; $30-$40 per week). Interested in becoming a member? Click here to download a 2017 application.
Purchase a Share for a Family in Need
Shares purchased under this plan are allotted to families in need identified through our friends at Helping Hands. Your donation of at least $360 (one-half of the price of a share) will be matched by the Pfeiffer Center so that a family in need can enjoy a season of fresh biodynamic produce.
What Is a CSA?
Community-Supported Agriculture makes a farm’s customers into stakeholders by asking them to purchase the season’s crop long before it is harvested. Introduced to North America by Trauger Groh and other biodynamic farmers in the 1980s, the CSA movement works on the principle that economic activity should serve the needs of the community over the maximization of profit. By integrating farms and communities, CSAs help bring to life the biodynamic and anthroposophical goal of reuniting culture and agriculture. CSA members “meet their farmer” every week, closing the gulf between agricultural producers and consumers that Rudolf Steiner observed in his Agriculture lectures of 1924.
Every Thursday from spring through fall, you can find fresh-picked, biodynamically raised produce and herbs from the Pfeiffer Center Garden and Molina Field in our self-serve farm stand, located in the Pfeiffer Center garden. Also watch for Garden Gold biodynamic compost, our own herb salts and salves, and other special treats. The stand opens at 9:00am. We look forward to seeing you!
