Min Ha'Aretz CSA at Beth El was a huge success last year. There were many Kol Emet members and preschool families who participated in this program. Kol Emet will again be partnering with Beth El to provide box shares from the Honey Brook Organic Farm Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) in Pennington. Applications for the 2014 season are currently available online. The CSA runs from May to November (exact dates vary based on weather). Half shares are available (it is recommended that you find your own share partner). This is a wonderful opportunity to get weekly fresh organic produce without traveling to the farm.
