Based on the 'Community Supported Agriculture' model, Aquin is offering 'shares' in the 'Greendawg Market' gardens in 2015. When partners purchased a share, they:
- support the gardens' expenses
- support Aquin's tuition assistance program
- get a weekly 'share' of the gardens' harvests
Garden Shares for 2015:
- $100 for a 'full-share' for the 2015 harvest season
- (1 'share' of the harvest every week)
- $50 for a 'half-share' for the 2015 harvest season
- (1 'share' of the harvest every 2 weeks)
- After covering expenses of the gardens, remaining funds will go to Aquin's Guardian Angel fund and provide tuition assistance. In 2014-15, Greendawg Market provided $2280 to tuition assistance.
Shareholder Harvests 2015:
- June 10-August 1: pick up your 'share' of the harvest on Wednesdays at Aquin
