Luther College faculty and staff are eligible for a 50 percent reimbursement (up to $100) on Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares (what's a CSA?). For the garden-enthusiast we are also offering the opportunity for you subscribe for a garden membership, through which you will receive a combination of plants and garden help.
Every CSA has a slightly different pick-up schedule, cost and quantity of produce. Luther encourages staff and faculty to browse through all options so you can find the program that will work best for you and your family. More detailed information is linked to the farm names below. The sign-up deadline is May 1st, but early registration is strongly encouraged.
This program is open to all current Luther College faculty and staff who are working .75 FTE or greater.

In order to participate in the reimbursement program you must first sign up with the farm of your choice. Once you have done that, please enroll in the CSA rebate program by completing the online form.
What is Community Supported Agriculture?
For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Consumers pay an up-front cost, and in exchange receive weekly or biweekly boxes of produce for the entire summer. Some CSAs offer market shares where customers can pay up front and draw down an account at the local farmer's market. CSAs come in all shapes and sizes to accommodate the diverse needs of customers. In fact, this year Luther employees will even have the option of trying out a Winter CSA or a "Garden Membership" (assistance with developing and maintaining a garden in your yard or in a community garden). More general information about CSAs.
