*Please circulate far and wide*

This season we are piloting a program to make Community Supported
Agriculture (CSA) shares more available to families with limited incomes.

We  will collect monetary donations, and, through family resource centres
with whom we work, find families who are interested in receiving a CSA
share for the season.  The donations will be used to purchase shares for
these families.

For this pilot season, we will be working with The Kids Action Program  in
Canning and Bayers Westwood Family Resource Centre in Halifax.  The  family
resource centres will choose which CSA farm to purchase from  based on
delivery routes, schedules, and fit.
