I'm always looking for quick, easy, weeknight meals that use up all the extra veggies from last week. This farro salad is great for those early fall vegetables we've been getting recently.

WSCSA NEWS AND UPDATES

Hi Members,  

We're in need of volunteers for this week's pickup in the 2-4pm and 6:30-8:30 time slots. We have no one in the afternoon slot, and we really need help unloading the truck! Sign up here or email us if you can assist! 

MARKET DAY
Have you placed your order for our October 17th Fall Market Day yet? Orders and payments are due this Thursday October 12. This is your chance to try out items as a one-time purchase from our local farmers. We have a selection of goods both from Norwich Meadows Farm and Lewis Waite Farms this time. You can place your order using this form.

WINTER REGISTRATION
If you're enjoying the fall CSA and want to continue through the winter and spring, join our Winter CSA! Registration opens tomorrow, October 10th. We will have just 5 pickups between November and May, with exact dates to be announced. Rather than our typical vegetable share with add-ons, the winter CSA features several "mixed" share types to choose from: Meat share, Lacto-Ovo share, and Vegan share. Find more details and registration forms on our website here. Registration will close on October 31st. 


THIS WEEK IN FOOD NEWS

agrobiodiversity

Sixth mass extinction of wildlife also threatens food supply.

According to experts, the sixth mass extinction of global wildlife already under way is seriously threatening the world’s food supplies. The average food consumer forgets that three-quarters of the world’s food today comes from just 12 crops and five animal species. There are tens of thousands of wild or rarely cultivated species that could provide a richly varied range of nutritious foods, resistant to disease and tolerant of the changing environment.

This article details how new information on endangered food supplies pushes the need for ‘agrobiodiversity’, and how we as consumers can help.

Cheers,
The WSCSA Core Committee
