SPACE on Ryder Farm announces new Harvest Club subscription program for 2021
SPACE on Ryder Farm, the nonprofit residency program and organic farm on Starr Ridge Road in Brewster, today announced the creation of Harvest Club. Harvest Club is a subscription program that adds a creative twist to a traditional Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program through a weekly variety of nourishment, beauty and culture intended to brighten homes.
Harvest Club will offer subscribers the ability to choose from produce + art, art, or flower subscriptions. The produce + art subscription is an 18-week subscription that includes certified-organic produce and four issues of original art created by Harvest commissioned artists. The art subscription offers four original artworks created by commissioned SPACE residency alumni and local artists. Flower subscription members receive fresh-cut flower bouquets weekly from June through October.
As part of SPACE’s mission to cultivate art and agriculture, the organization will aim to provide more than eighty Produce + Art subscriptions at no cost to local food insecure families. SPACE partners with Catholic Charities, Neighbor’s Link and Putnam CAP to support this effort.
SPACE Farm Director Julie Noble said, “today, folks are more receptive than ever to buy local and support small farms, and 2021 presents new opportunities for invaluable small farms, such as Ryder Farm, to adapt and look forward to welcoming neighbors back into our field and gardens, sharing in the awe and wonder of growing food.”
Registration for the SPACE Harvest Club is now open, and will remain open until limited subscriptions sell out.
