The grand prize for this raffle is a vegetable share for the 2014 growing season sponsored by Bluebird Gardens, valued at $395. Additionally, each ticket purchased has a chance of winning one of 19 other prizes by area businesses. The total retail value of prizes is over $2,200.  A detailed prize list is below. The cost for the tickets is $5 with all proceeds from the raffle going directly toward student scholarships at NDSU.

Grand Prize - Bluebird Gardens Vegetable Share


Bluebird Gardens is a vegetable farm in Fergus Falls, MN, that sells nutritionally-dense, sustainably-raised produce direct to consumers. Their vegetables are sold through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares, which means people sign up to become "members" of the farm and then they get vegetables all season long. The grand prize is a membership for the 2014 growing season, valued at $395. More information can be found at
