This is last minute, I realize, but I think that some of you who read this journal would be interested. The Native Plant Society lecture fall lecture series begins tonight:
September 15, 6:30 pm Biology Auditorium, 101 Duckett Hall at The Citadel - The Importance of CSAs and How They Work in This Economy - Babs and Pete Ambrose, Owners of Ambrose Family Farm
Following a dream to have the local community eat and enjoy what they grow, and to retain the acreage of their Wadmalaw farm, Babs and Pete have established a way of life based largely on Community Supported Agriculture to accomplish this and more. CSA is a partnership of mutual commitment between a local farmer and the people who consume his/her seasonal produce. Members purchase a "share" of the farm's anticipated fresh produce, which in turn ensures the survival of the local family farm by guaranteeing the farmer a fair economic return for his efforts. Babs also owns and operates the Stono Market and Tomato Shed Cafe with her youngest daughter, Barbara Ambrose.
Hope to see you there!
