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 www.bluebirdgardens.net.
The winner of the grand prize will receive a one season membership for Bluebird Gardens' 2014 growing season. Membership consists of weekly deliveries of fresh vegetables and fruits grown by Bluebird Gardens and delivered to a predetermined drop-off location. Additionally, membership includes the option of attending five harvest events where members are invited to the farm to stock up on their favorite produce. Drop-off locations are limited to Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo, and select western Minnesota towns. For more information, go to www.bluebirdgardens.net .
