Happy New Year from UK CSA! We are in a busy CSA planning and conference season, and doing field work on the nicer days.
While it hasn’t felt much like winter lately, the limited daylight hours keep plants in check. We have lots of babies in the ground for spring sales, and we still have some ready to go. We will be hosting a Farm Stand on campus Thursday January 23rd. Pre-orders will be made available that Monday and we will send an email at that time.
The 2020 UK CSA will open sign ups on Friday January 24th! Are you ready for another year of fresh, organic, delicious vegetables, fruits, and herbs? Check back here at the blog, the SAG website, or social media (Facebook, Instagram) for the link at that time.
We are thrilled to announce University of Kentucky is now offering CSA vouchers as an open benefit without a lottery system. Eligible UK employees will be able to sign up for a $200 CSA voucher good starting January 24th as well. Just a reminder, vouchers cannot be applied retroactively to a purchase. If you plan on purchasing a share this season, claim your voucher code via the UK Health and Wellness dashboard between January 24th and April 20th before registering for a UK CSA share.
The UK CSA Fair will kick-off sign-ups at the UK Food Connection (upstairs from the 90) on January 24, 2020 from 11-1pm and offer employees a chance to win a CSA share, sign up for a voucher, take part in giveaways and food tastings, and meet us (the CSA farmers). Save the date and please RSVP for this event on your UK Health and Wellness Dashboard, https://ukhr.uky.edu/livewell/eatwell/presentations.
