2019 CSA Fair: Thank You!

ImageThank you to our farmers and to everyone who attended the 2019 CSA Fair on April 27 at Seward Co-op Creamery Café.

Midwest Food Connection offered a seed planting activity for kids and kids at heart. Seward Co-op's board members staffed the welcome table and talked about their work on behalf of owners.

Huge thank you to Sitka Salmon Shares for partnering with us on a giveback campaign and for donating the fish for our cafe specials. For each Community Supported Fishery share sold through the fair, Sitka donated $25 to Seward Co-op's April SEED grant recipient, Sexual Violence Center in Minneapolis. With 12 shares sold, Sitka donated a total of $300!

Three farmer talks were livstreamed and featured Emily Hanson of Shared Ground Farmers' Cooperative, Naima Dhore, a Somali-American farmer who grows certified organic vegetables, and Reginaldo Haslett-Marroquin of Regenerative Agriculture Alliance. View the talks on Facebook now.

Thank you to the vendors and farmers who joined us. If you weren't able to attend the CSA Fair, farmers may still have some shares available. Visit their websites to learn more!
