Buy fresh produce through a CSA: Pre-pay by July 1
The university has partnered with Prochaska Farms in Tecumseh, Mich. and Tantré Farms in Chelsea, Mich, to give faculty and staff an opportunity to get fresh, straight-from-the-farm produce. Purchase a 12-week “share” in a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program by July 1, then pick up your fresh produce each week at locations near campus.
A “share” typically consists of a box or basket of farm fresh seasonal vegetables, with other farm products possibly included. Weekly pick-up sites near campus include:
- Washtenaw Food Hub (4175 Whitmore Lake Road) – Every Wednesday, July 8 – September 23, 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. Organic produce provided by Tantré Farms.
- Green Road Parking Lot (1919 Green Road) – Every Thursday, July 9 – September 24, 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. Produce provided by Prochaska Farms.
The CSA program is a partnership between MHealthy, UMHS and Planet Blue. Along with encouraging healthier food choices, the CSA program supports the university’s commitment to offering sustainable, locally sourced foods.
