|A former member||
Hello, SVS members!
It was wonderful to meet many of you at the potluck last Sunday. Below are more details for our veganic veggie box program (CSA) at Animal Place. We are still working on getting the information and registration posted on the Animal Place website. In the meantime, you can direct friends to this page on SVS meetup:
Veganic CSA from Animal Place
If you'd like to distribute a flyer to friends or the public, please email me for the file to print. Thanks in advance of your support of our animal sanctuary and veganic farm.
Animal Place’s Veggie Box!
Pre-order/reserve your weekly produce box today!
Share the harvest this season with Animal Place’s veganic farm! Join the only veganic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program in Sacramento and Nevada County, California. All proceeds directly benefit the rescue, care and advocacy for farmed animals at Animal Place.
What it is: Members receive a weekly box of fresh produce grown at Animal Place’s 2.8-acre vegan farm located in Grass Valley, California.
Also included in the CSA membership is a weekly newsletter with updates from the farm, what’s in the box and vegan recipes. Members will be invited to an annual member celebration day in the fall and are encouraged to visit Animal Place throughout the year during our open hours.
Why veganic agriculture: Most farms (organic and conventional) use by-products of animal farming, including blood meal, bone meal, fish emulsion, feather meal, and manure. At Animal Place, we honor the animal residents and nonhumans everywhere by not using their bodies and excrement to grow food. Our growing practices are 100% plant-based, organic*, and compassionate.
Our farm serves as a working model for farming without using animal by-products and furthers our mission to end animal suffering while living more compassionately.
How it works: Each week, we harvest seasonal fresh vegetables and herbs from our farm for our members. The season runs for 22 weeks from late May/early June through October. Exact dates are dependent on the weather. Members may sign up at any time for a pro-rated amount, but space is limited.
For members in Sacramento, the weekly box is $27 ($594 for the 22 weeks). Pick-up is from 4 to 7pm on Wednesdays, at Sacramento Grange Hall, 3830 U St.**
Payment can be made in full by March 15, or in two installments due March 15 and August 1. We accept payment by check or credit card. Members who pay in full by March 15 receive a 5% discount.
We grow a diverse selection of crops, providing you with an ample variety of healthy food in your diet. Our one-size box will be at least 2/3 full, about the equivalent of a full brown grocery bag, with around 6 to 10 different items.
A typical spring box includes: arugula, beets, carrots, green onions, lettuce, radishes, carrots and peas. Summer brings on the tasty tomatoes, along with summer squash, cucumbers, eggplant, bell peppers, potatoes, honeydew melons and green beans. In the fall, you can expect to enjoy butternut squash, yellow onions, kale and all of the fixings for a hearty vegan soup.
