Does the institution host a farmers' market for the community?:

A brief description of the farmers’ market:

CSU's Horticulture program sponsors a Community Supported Agriculture program open to the community.

The CSU CSA provides members a wide variety of local organic produce. The farm is tended by CSU students who are passionate about organic agriculture and who want to share it with the local community. The advantages of signing up for the CSA are many. The consumer gets the freshest possible produce from a local farm; the opportunity to contribute to a sustainable, local economy; and a direct relationship with the people who grow their food. In the simplest of terms, a CSA offers consumers a "subscription" for weekly delivered produce during the growing season.
