Educational CSA:  This Old Farm is launching a workshop series to be held Saturday afternoons, from 2 PM to 3:30AM at the farm or other location upon notification.  Jessica Smith will share information about different aspects of farm life from organic gardening to raising chickens to preserving the harvest.  Whether you are new to growing your own food or a seasoned veteran, there will be something for everyone.  They make a great addition to your home school curriculum.  Unless otherwise advertised each class will be $15/ a piece or $25/ family.  A $5 discount will be given for any good quality garden implements donated to the farm (ie shovels, farm rake, hoes, hand tools, gloves, hose)  If in doubt, ask if we need it.  All class topics will be posted in the calendar.  If there is something you would like to learn about and you don’t see the topic, please let us know.   These classes are also part of an educational CSA.  This is intended to be a hands on CSA.  As a CSA share owner you will be registered in each of the available workshops.  As is standard with a CSA, you will receive a share of the harvest each week representing a basketful of produce intended to fulfill the needs of a family of four.  Each Educational CSA is $550 payable in two installments.  Though we encourage you to take part in the education part of the CSA we will provide CSA baskets for the same price without the educational opportunity if you are tight for time
