Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a coordinated effort to link local farmers with local individuals and families who desire to eat fresh produce and dairy while supporting the local farm economy. Tomāto Tomäto has developed a program designed to connect the local farm producers and individuals and families. UNMC has chosen to participare as corporate location to allow the employees to participate in the CSA program. This is open to all UNMC, UNMCP, and Clarkson College employees and students. TNMC employees can sign up by contacting Sarah Emanuel at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 402-552-2775.
What to expect in your bag: spring greens, asparagus, broccoli, radishes, potatoes, sweet corn, tomatoes and much more. (For a complete list see their website, www.tomatotomato.org and click on the produce availability tab)
How does it work?
Tomāto Tomäto begins crop planning with all of the member farms to determine how many “shares” will be available for the season. Each week Tomāto Tomäto will deliver to the members what has been harvested just for them; campus location pick up is the Maurer Center for Public Health (MCPH) building. The Fall CSA will last 12 weeks; beginning the week of August 25—November 10, 2014. UNMC has been given a limited number of shares so don’t wait if you are interested.
Worried about this being too much food for you to use in a week? You can share a bag with a co-worker(s). Please put names & contact information on the form and names will be written on your reusable CSA bag.
Tomāto Tomäto Newsletter: Each week with your bag you will receive a newsletter telling you who grew your various items. There will be information on the farms and simple recipes to help you use vegetables that may be less familiar.
UNMC Corporate Newsletter: A few days before the weekly delivery, you will be emailed a list of the contents in the bag that week along with recipes using the contents of your bag. Information on upcoming community events (i.e. cooking/canning classes) and other local information (i.e. Buy Fresh Buy Local) will be included.
How to sign up:
Sign-ups for the UNMC Fall CSA will begin June 18, 2014. All shares are available on a first come first serve basis; shares are not guaranteed until payment has been received. To pick up your bag at UNMC, you must sign up using the UNMC Corporate Enrollment form; contact Robin Jaeckel to email you the form. Forms will be accepted until July 24, 2014 or sooner if UNMC meets its limited number of shares.
