What you get – and what you’re a part of
By participating in Seminary Hill Farm’s CSA, you join shareholders throughout Greater Columbus who enjoy shares of healthy, delicious fruits and vegetables, grown by farmers you’ll come to know by name.
CSA members who pick up their food on MTSO’s hillside campus look out over fields growing food that will soon be on their dinner tables. We assemble shares for all shareholders, with the contents determined by what is ripe and ready for picking. Your share will likely include some familiar favorites and new vegetables that will broaden your culinary horizons.
As a shareholder, you’re also contributing to the work of Seminary Hill Farm in several areas:
- Community outreach – Fresh, healthy food should be available to all. We are donating 15% of the food we grow to food pantries and other charitable organizations. The farm also is integral to MTSO’s Community Food and Wellness Initiative, which engages churches and community groups on the topics of food and wellness.
- Integration with the MTSO campus – Ecotheology is a vital component of the education MTSO offers graduate students preparing for vocations of ministry and service. We live out this commitment by serving Seminary Hill Farm food in our dining hall and modeling sustainable practices and care for the earth for those who will go on to lead churches and nonprofits.
- Farm internships – We provide paid full-time internships, giving interns the opportunity to participate in all aspects of small-scale farm work, from seeding and harvesting to marketing and soil management. Interns who also are students can even receive academic credit through their home institutions.
As a CSA shareholder, you’re serving food in your home that was grown and packed in your community, not trucked in from parts unknown. And you’re investing in a better world.
Simply put, you’re doing good by eating good.
