If you would like to personally experience a sustainable food lifestyle from June to November, consider joining a CSA (community supported agriculture). There are several in the area.
Red Earth Farm
Red Earth Farm is a family-owned and operated farm dedicated to bringing the freshest chemical-free produce to your table. We never use synthetic, artificial, or chemical substances in our farming process. Our CSA offers the opportunity to CHOOSE your produce weekly online from our website.
Bethlehem Food Co-Op
There is a movement underway for a Bethlehem Food Co-Op. The co-op will offer healthy, affordable, locally-focused food and informational workshops, and will be located within one of the two downtown Bethlehem food deserts. The next co-op meeting will be Thursday, 3/22 at 7pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Center St. in Bethlehem. All are welcome. We'll be voting on a logo and discussing committee progress, upcoming events, etc. For more information, visit:
