Community Supported Agriculture
What is a CSA?
Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are the basics: A farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
This year Minto Island Grower's CSA will have 6 drop sites for OHSU, 2 on Marquam Hill and 4 off the hill:
On the hill:
Mac Hall- Room 1181
School of Nursing- 3rd floor, by back door
Off the hill:
OHSU Foundation building, 1121 S.W. Salmon Street, Suite 100, Portland, OR
OHSU Marquam Plaza, Marquam Plaza 2525 SW 3rd Avenue Portland, OR 97201
Market Square Building, 1515 SW Fifth Ave., STE 900. Portland, OR 97201
