MA’O Farm’s "CSA" Program

Just wanted to tell you about this wonderful program MA’O is launching called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) which is a way for people in the community to buy a share of the farm and in so doing, commit to supporting the farm.

How it works: pay $32/week and get a box of veggies every week (whatever comes out of the ground!) to be picked up at either LCCW or V-Lounge (Ala Moana). The box can feed approximately a family of 4. Consider splitting the box with friends and co-workers! We would like to get more Wai’anae customers.

HELP US SPREAD THE WORD TO EVERYONE IN WAI’ANAE & CONSIDER PARTICIPATING!
