Share Luscher Farm's agricultural bounty
Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation has a long partnership with Laura Masterson, owner of 47th Avenue Farms, to provide citizens with Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA is a partnership between a farmer and local customers who invest in one another.
The CSA provides customers an opportunity to connect with the land and receive healthy, sustainably grown vegetables.
Members come to Luscher Farm twice a month between 5-7 p.m. Thursdays, Nov. 7-April 16, to pick up their shares of produce.
Members receive at least eight to 10 different vegetables and herbs. Whole shares cost $1,145 and half shares are $630.
"Dig In" at Springbrook Park - Saturday, Oct. 26, 9-11 a.m. Grab a shovel and join Friends of Springbrook Park to plant native species in this 52-acre natural park.
