Colchester Farm’s community supported agriculture (CSA) project is one of those special resources in greater Chestertown that is not immediately noticed by most. Over the past five years, the CSA has slowly increased its membership to 140 families, providing fresh, pesticide-free produce for almost half the year to its subscribers, while also creating a special connection to those that grow this food on some of the most special and fertile land in Kent County. At a time when more and more Americans are rethinking what they eat and where they get their food, Colchester Farm has created a viable option for our community through the creative energy of this non-profit’s dedicated staff and board, as well as its members donations and support.
The Chestertown Spy will be hosting a benefit for Colchester Farm’s CSA with a special showing of the award winning documentary Food Inc. on September 24 at 7:30 PM at the Prince Theatre in Chestertown. Students (of all ages) are asked to donate $5 and the adult suggested donation is $10 at the door. For more information, please visit www.eventbrite.com
