CSA SHARES WITH CRAWFORD ORGANICS FARM FRESH ORGANIC PRODUCE
Warminster Parks & Recreation will continue to bring fresh organic produce, eggs, yogurt and honey to the community through the 2016 growing season but Wimer’s Organics CSA has merged with Crawford Organics CSA. Consumers purchase a share and in return receive a box of seasonal produce each week throughout the season; contents will vary as the harvest dictates. Shares are available as Full Season (value), Summer Season or Fall Season – Weekly or Biweekly. Share Pickup will be at the WREC@WCP (date & time TBD). Shares may be purchased online @ www.crawfordorganics.com. Warminster Parks has no control over what kinds of produce are delivered each week and is providing this as a service to area residents by making available a pickup location for the CSA.
