2016 Teens 4 Good CSA

Teens 4 good CSA


“I love everything about the Teens4Good CSA. The produce is always excellent, the farmer and farm staff are knowledgeable and kind, and the price is unbeatable!”
– Arielle Middleman, CSA Member.

What is Community Supported Agriculture

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial commitment between farmers and their community. Members pay in advance before the start of the season and receive a share of the harvest. This provides operating capital for the farm and allows the farmer to plan for the season. In return, the farmer provides CSA members with a weekly share in the bounty.

Why Join Teens4Good CSA?


“The Teens 4 Good CSA was a great experience and definitely worth the cost. I loved the weekly variety of vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers. Great portions and the produce was always in great shape. I also enjoyed the weekly newsletter’s recipe suggestions. Looking forward to participating again this year!”
– Brian Cassidy, CSA Member.

Culinary Connections Story


It’s hard to believe that it had been three months since Jevs Human Resources collaborated with FNC to present “Culinary Connections” program.

Here are some testimonies from the participants:

“I realized I want to give a hand to the underdog…Maybe working in a hospital, or helping out senior citizens, or volunteering in a shelter. Food training – these skills – allow you to get a blessing without getting a blessing, if you know what I mean.”
– Othelia

“Life hits you, and when it does, you realize ‘I have to do something,’…And so going back into the classroom, learning what you don’t know, and then being able to show what you do know, is great!”
– Patrick
