locally grown produce discussion

Discover the Benefits of Locally Grown Produce This Thursday, February 25th, with a Place On Earth CSA Farm

On Thursday, From 5:30-7pm, Our Dear Friends Carden and Courtney Willis will be at Amazing Green Planet to discuss the benefits of Community Supported Agriculture. Their CSA has been in operation for five years and for the past two at their current location in Henry County. A typical share includes a weekly delivery of in season produce that is ripe and ready to eat. The Shares vary from week to week as the growing season matures. CSA's create a very direct link to the food we eat and our relationship to how it is grown.

As true stewards of the earth, Carden and Courtney's work is one of the most effective ways to bring sustainability into our everyday lives. Here is a link to their website:


There will be a small assortment of refreshments provided for the guests that come out that evening.

If you have any questions, please call (502) 290-1358, or email amazinggreenplanet@gmail.com

  1. Wow the CSA looks like a wonderful food tool. I wish we had something like that around me, but I guess the location has a bit to do with it.
