Farm Share Registration for Bowdoin Geneva Families Now Open!

Bowdoin Geneva families may now register for the Farm to Family Program for Summer 2012.  Farm to Family is an innovative subsidized CSA (community-supported agriculture) program that serves low-income families, providing them with farm-fresh fruits and vegetables at an affordable price.  The produce is grown at The Food Project’s farm in Lincoln, MA and delivered to community agencies in the Bowdoin Geneva neighborhood for distribution to participating families.  Families pay $5 per week for $15-worth of produce and can pay with cash, check, or SNAP/EBT.
