This Week in Vi Locally Grown


Greetings!
This week marks the start of R2R’s Summer CSA program. Great crops are in and some will spillover to the market! If you’d like to sign up, there is still time. We can prorate your share also. http://ridgetoreef.csasignup.com/members/types.

As for the market, we will have our usual selection of produce (sans tomatoes) + some summer fruits including mangoes and ripe bananas. Delicious! Speaking of summer, why not cool off in the hot weather with a crisp Ginger Beer from Queen’s Maubi? See you Wed!

Best,
Castiel Kailani

This Week in VI Locally Grown


Dear VI Locally Grown members,

There is a lot to choose from the market this week, including many greens, lettuce, kale, eggs, local wines, fruits, and mango pasture-raised pork cuts (chops, ham, ribs, stew) because Ridge to Reef’s CSA program draws to a close for the winter season and many crops normally sent to the CSA are available, so please help us eat some of the great organic food we are growing!
Also, our CSA has just opened up for registrations for the 2015 Summer season, starting the first week of June. Sign up for regular access to R2R’s organic produce! http://www.ridge2reef.org/csa-registration-page.html

Have a great week and we hope to see you Wednesday,
Castiel & the VI Locally Grown producers

Dear VI Locally Grown members,

There is a lot to choose from the market this week, including many greens, lettuce, kale, eggs, and mango pasture-raised pork cuts (chops, ham, ribs, stew) and there will be a lot more in the coming weeks as Ridge to Reef’s CSA program draws to a close for the winter season and many crops normally sent to the CSA will become available, so please help us eat some of the great organic food we are growing! Also, our CSA has just opened up for registrations for the 2015 Summer season, starting the first week of June. Sign up for regular access to R2R’s organic produce! http://www.ridge2reef.org/csa-registration-page.html The market at Little La Grange has been so pleasant lately under the large saman trees. With easy breezes and filtered light coming from above. Last week we all dreamed up having a lawn concert on the site, we will see what comes out of it! Thanks for shopping with us this week and supporting our organic food growing habits. Your food is currently being tended and watered with loving care.

Have a great week and we hope to see you Wednesday,

Nate & the VI Locally Grown producers

This Week in VI Locally Grown


Hello VI Locally Grown Members! So many new items are comin in, we can hardly keep up. I’ll be brining more parsley, carrots, cucumbers, eggplant, eggfruit, tamarind, etc this week. We apologize for the late start last week. Because of the holidays we had to ship our CSA the same day as the market. On that note, did you hear that last week we had our biggest shipment ever to the St Thomas at St. John schools and CSA program? 173 boxes of VI locally grown produce, yay! If you’d like more info about our CSA program, please visit here —> http://ridgetoreef.csasignup.com/members/types Thank you so much for your continued support!

Castiel and your local growers

This Week in VI Locally Grown,


I hope you all have enjoyed the new items we have been bringing to the market. This week we will have even more new goodies like watermelon, parsley, and carrots. Yum!

We are considering moving the market to Tuesdays at the same time and we are definitely opening a Saturday morning market, which initially will just be non-preorders as we coordinate with our growers. We are trying to make things more convenient for you all. What are your thoughts about these options?

Also, to help grow the market I’m adding a referral bonus. If you bring a friend to the market who has never been with us before, I’ll give you 10% off both of your produce (R2R produce) at checkout, Yay!

Thanks for your continued support!
Castiel
