As we ease into the cold months, we’re already thinking ahead to the 2016 CSA season. We’re pleased to share that we will be among the farmers and makers present at the Second Annual Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fair in Urbana this year! This event is hosted by Urbana’s Market at the Square, The Land Connection and the Urbana Business Association. The fair is an opportunity to meet and talk with farmers about CSA offerings for the 2016 growing season. Many farmers – like us! – will be signing folks up for shares at the fair. It’s like shopping for future you; pay a little now, and receive your share of the abundance down the road. Learn more about this event here.
Delight expanded so much this year – we took on a lot of custom orders, donated many arrangements to fundraisers, supplied flowers for a wedding, made a record number of wreaths, and did a pop-up collaboration with Flying Machine Coffee. But CSAs were and are still certainly the bulk of our work. The CSA is the heartbeat of this operation. By purchasing a CSA share with Delight Flower Farm, you will be supporting us as we leap (with faith!) into many new endeavors: new land, experiments in season extension, new flower varieties, and MORE flowers than ever before!
So, here are the nitty gritty details: The Second Annual Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fair will be held at the Urbana Civic Center on Monday, December 14 from 4-7 pm. The Urbana Civic Center is located at 108 East Water Street in Urbana. We will be signing folks up for the 2016 CSA season. Full shares cost $180.00 before December 31, option to add $50.00 for delivery all season long. Share prices will increase in 2016! If you know you’d like to sign up for a share, you can bring a check to the CSA Fair – please make checks out to Maggie Taylor c/o Delight Flower Farm. We will have special treats and swag for those who sign up!
P.S. A big, warm thanks to all who ordered holiday wreaths this season. We were overwhelmed with support from customers and friends, old and new. Happy holidays from the ladies of Delight!
