Community Supported Agriculture is Growing Like a Weed!

There’s a new CSA forming in the Morristown area!  This is great news as shares are sold out in several other area CSAs.  What is a CSA?  CSA stands for community supported agriculture.  The basic idea is that a farmer grows for a group of members who have purchased shares in the harvest in advance of the season — when the farmer needs the money.  When the crops come in, the farmer delivers a weekly assortment of organic vegetables, herbs and some fruit.

Now that's farm fresh!

Now that's farm fresh!

John Krueger is the owner/operator of Starbrite Farm.  He has a BS in environmental science from Cook College and has been farming organically since 2002.

Vegetables are grown in western New Jersey and delivered to Morristown every week for pick up.  The season is 22 weeks long and begins June 18th and runs through November 12.  Membership includes a weekly assortment of 6-10 varieties of organic produce, and members are expected to contribute one 4-hour shift to help with distribution (that sounds like fun!) — hanging out with other folks who enjoy fresh, organic, NJ grown produce.  Interested?  Hurry before the shares are all sold out.   

Call Jamie at 973.699.1913 or Liz at 973.984.2432.

    Thanks for the link to LocalHarvest.org.

    I’m going to Florida in July to get married and I will use that site to find some organic produce to line the tables!

Unacceptable Levels

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

Beauty and the Breast

“A first time documentary filmmaker offers a compelling insight into a devastating reality of breast cancer, as seen through the eyes of several female patients helping demystify the disease while painting poignant and often humorous intimate portraits of survival. The film depicts the process of learning and accepting the terrifying verdict, and details the complexities of every stage of this disease. All interviewed patients have different experiences living with mutilated bodies while still maintaining strength. This film is not only invaluable as a testament to human resilience but it also proves that it’s possible to blossom in the face of adversity. But as the fight continues, the wisdom and beauty within us can help us conquer the beast until we find the cure.”
