Lindentree dropped off their first shares at the HUB Wednesday. This was the first CSA I ever belonged to, so in a sense they provided the inspiration for this program. I started thinking: this CSA thing is so great, why didn’t I do it when I lived in Cambridge? And what can we do more broadly that would make CSAs mainstream, I mean 1 of 3 people living in the city participating sort of mainstream.
I waited a couple of years on the waiting list before a spot opened up at Lindentree. I’d met this apple farmer Rosslyn Harris through Clover. He told me Lindentree grew the best tasting vegetables he’d ever had, and that stuck with me.
This week those who signed up for Lindentree received:
- French breakfast radishes (not sure why they’re called that)
- Head of lettuce
- Pint of Strawberries
- Bok choy
- Another asian vegetable I don’t know the name of
What are you cooking up with your share? Farm share drop offs are happening at Clover HUB (1075 Cambridge St.) all summer long, a different farm each day of the week. We’re so excited it’s really happening.
