CSA Tour

 We will be having a separate in-depth tour of the actual Organic Vegetable CSA production areas.  Bring your questions on specific organic pest control so you too can try organic food production. 

For those seeking to carpool meet at Kenhill Center by 5:45 Pm. Talk with friends before to travel together or meet at the side parking lot of Kenhill Center by 5:45 PM. 

Follow the directions below,  we will be meeting at the CSA pick-up area which is  up the hill or North from where we met last year at the Clagget Farm.  At the first Y after turning off of Old Marboro Pike bare straight or North past the turn off to the house, and straight past the turn off that goes to the 3 barns.  The building and parking lot is at the top of the hill just after a sharp right turn, this is the CSA distribution building. 

This is an in-depth tour of the actual Organic Vegetable CSA field production methods.  We will learn their actual production methods while maintaining organic certification.  This is a large operation that provides organic food to many CSA members and gives many donations to food pantry and kitchens in Washington D.C.  The entire process is a demonstration farm of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
