Looking to grow a healthier lifestyle? Consider joining our First Fruits Co-op. This gardening and mission-minded group of individuals from AC3 and our local community plant, cultivate, harvest vegetables, keep bees for honey and share the harvest.
You might say, “I’ve heard of this! It’s a C.S.A. (Community Supported Agriculture)!” You’re partially right...but there’s MORE!
While Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is not a new idea, making it a 'Gospel' endeavor might be! Where a CSA simply provides its paying customers with produce, First Fruits adds a few wrinkles:
- Most members provide the labor to grow the food themselves; co-op style.
- A lion’s share of the harvest is contributed to Seeds of Grace for distribution days and it's Market Mentorship Project. MMP provides a seasonal market place experience for it's mentees needing a hand up in our community.
