Registration begins for 2012 season of Hazon, JCC’s organic produce program

The Hazon Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) at the Jewish Community Center provides an opportunity to pre-purchase locally grown, fresh, organic produce from a farmer in your community. Purchase a “share” for the 2012 season, and pick up your vegetables at either J location every Wednesday from June through October. Registration is now open for the 2012 growing season. The program’s new farm, Dry Dock Farms, has been growing organic vegetables, herbs and flowers in Silex, Mo. since 2005. The farm does not use chemicals or genetically modified seeds.

Subscribers will receive four servings of six different vegetables each week. Food that is not picked up by subscribers is automatically donated to the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry to help families in need get access to organic produce.

Small families can sign up for a half share at a discounted price and pick up every other week. Sign up before Dec. 31 to get an early bird price. To register, or for more information, contact Diane Maier at 314-442-3190 or [email protected] or visit to

Hazon CSA is coordinated by the Helene Mirowitz Center of Jewish Community Life with support from Lesley M. and Stanley L. Hoffman, David Roberts and Sue Fischlowitz.
