CSA Sign-Up Extended to April 15

Attention LifeBridge Health employees: There is still time to sign up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share for the summer.

A CSA allows you to buy into a farm at the beginning of the season and receive a share of whatever is in season each week. Our partner, Breezy Willow Farm, is located in Howard County and offers an opportunity to pick up shares at Sinai at a set time each week. It’s like bringing the best of the farmers' market to you!

Each week, participants will receive an assortment of eight products that are currently in season. This will include an assortment of local, naturally grown vegetables and fruits, as well as free-range eggs and fresh bread. On certain weeks, you may also receive value-added farm products including honey, jam, and sheep's milk soap.

Deliveries begin the first week of June and continue through November. The cost of this program breaks down to approximately $35/week and several payment options are available.
