New benefit at Luther for CSA's

Here is some information on the program from the Luther's site on this program:

"Luther will pay for half my vegetables?

Wellness and Sustainability are collaborating to offer Luther College faculty and staff a 50% reimbursement on their CSA vegetable share. To receive the reimbursement you will simply need to attend 2 summer book discussion and luncheon events and 2 local foods cooking classes. Very important to note: Reimbursements will not be made to individuals that do not meet the aforementioned requirements. September 1st is the date by which you can expect to be reimbursed, given that you meet all the requirements.

Find out how Luther will help you pay for your CSA and start enjoying your locally grown produce. Employees must enroll with a CSA program by May 1st. "


Lots of onions, leeks and shallots are growing in our heated greenhouse. Spring is here! Erik is nervously checking the forecasted low temps. for the next week. I am hoping we don't have to move too many flats into our living room because of frost.
