City of Arcata Announces Bayside Park Farm Share Open Enrollment
This is a press release from the City of Arcata Recreation Division:
Bayside Park Farm is a 3-acre vegetable farm located in the City of Arcata’s Bayside Park that is dedicated to cultivating connections between the community and sustainable agriculture. The Bayside Park Farm share program was the first CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) in Arcata, and it has provided the community with local, organic produce for 20 years. Since 1993, the farm has acted as an incubator to fledgling farmers by providing a space to develop practical skills in organic and sustainable agriculture. Purchasing a Bayside Park Farm share helps carry on this tradition by giving the next generation of local farmers their beginning.
Farm share enrollment is currently available for weekly pick-up beginning in June 2018. Bayside Park Farm is located at 930 Old Arcata Road, and full shares cost $450 for the season. The growing season lasts 21 weeks from June to November 2018. Early enrollment is encouraged, as shares are limited.
To enroll, visit at www.cityofarcata.org/rec, or to register in person, visit the Arcata Recreation Division office located at 736 F Street inside Arcata City Hall. Farm share payment plan options are available, and community members interested in utilizing that option are encouraged to call 707-822-7091.
