Turf CSA has been providing residents of Parkchester farm produce for three weeks. Every Saturday, Turf’s dedicated volunteers and youth interns arrive at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church at 8am to greet our csa farmer (the Rogowski family) and arrange the produce on tables before our csa members arrive. CSA members receive a weekly portion of their share, 7—10 vegetables and one dozen eggs. This time of the year, kale, Swiss chard, romaine lettuce, carrots, beets, turnips, Chinese cabbage, bok choi, green garlic, peas, garlic scapes, cilantro and chives are in season and belonging to a csa offers members opportunities to cook and eat these local vegetables when they taste their best.
This Saturday Turf will be hosting our first cooking demo. CSA members will learn how to prepare summer salads and salad dressings. The demo will also offer nutritional information, cooking tips, recipes, and suggestions on how to save money and time when preparing summer salads.
