Sign up for CREST CSA

Do you want to receive a fresh box of delicious organic vegetables every Thursday — and support a student-run business while doing so? If so, buy a share in the CREST CSA program. High-school and middle-school interns grow, harvest and market produce as part of a unique, hands-on learning experience. New this year: a West Linn pick-up option in addition to the CREST farm location, 7151 SW Boeckman Road in Wilsonville. Participants who prefer to pick up in West Linn can go to the Robinwood Station, 3706 Cedaroak Drive in West Linn.

CSA shares cost $600 for the 2014 growing season. Contact Bob Carlson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information or to sign up.
