Every year we look forward to renewing our local CSA (Community Sustainable Agriculture) memberships. On Bainbridge Island, we enjoy our weekly produce from Butler Green Farms CSA program but we really look forward to our monthly delivery of fresh oysters through the Port Madison Community Shellfish Farms.
The Port Madison Community Shellfish Farm (PMCSF), located on the Bloedel Reserve tidelands and operated by Puget Sound Restoration Fund, is coming up on its 4th season. The PMCSF seeks to connect community members directly with the benefits of a healthy watershed by growing, harvesting and eating community grown clams and oysters. Growing shellfish has many environmental benefits, including improved water quality, species diversity and eelgrass growth. Fact: A single oyster can filter 20 gallons of water a day.
We believe this positive connection between you, your environment and the food you eat is the key to active and enjoyable environmental stewardship. Why not enjoy some oysters and be a part of the solution to cleaning up Puget Sound?
Sign up for the 2013 Port Madison Community Shellfish Farm CSA Program and enjoy a bounty of the tasty Port Madison Petites this coming spring and summer.
