The UNM Sustainability Studies Program is proud to announce a new partnership between the Agri-Cultura Network and La Montanita Co-op. Starting in May, the on-campus Co-op Grab & Go location (next to the UNM Bookstore on Main Campus) will be the weekly distribution site for fresh shares of local produce through La Cosecha CSA.
La Cosecha is a CSA (community-supported agriculture) program that is fulfilled by the Agri-Cultura Network of nine small farms in the South Valley. Half of the CSA members are South Valley residents who are able to pay a reduced price for a fresh bag of local produce. The subsidized shares are completely sold out, but full-priced shares are still available.
UNM community members are encouraged to sign up! Support your local farmers, build a healthier community, and feed your family delicious produce. Apply for a weekly half ($15) or full ($30) share. The season will run for 25 weeks, from May 12 through October 27. Pickups will be Thursdays from 3:45-5:45pm at the on-campus Co-op Grab & Go. Please contact LaCosechaCSA@gmail.com with any questions, and be sure to mark on your application form that you'd like to pick up your produce at UNM!
