Coming soon at the ranch – our own CSA!
Thanks to grants from the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona, the Arizona Community Foundation of Cochise, the Jewish Community Foundation of Southern Arizona, Cenpatico and volunteers from Southwest Gas, we are able to begin a Community Supported Agricultural (CSA) program at the ranch. This wonderful program offers low-stress jobs to both individuals with disabilities and veterans as well as opportunities for community members to enjoy some of the fresh produce grown at the ranch. Community members can purchase a share in our crop and each week shareholders receive a basket of fresh produce. Gardens are in the process of being planted with the hopes that we will be able to begin selling shares for a January launch. If you are interested in potentially becoming a shareholder, please contact Marla at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will let you when we are ready to begin our first season.
