GU & YOU is a community supported agriculture venture that uses sustainable techniques to grow non-chemically treated, fresh-from-the-garden produce. Customers pay once before each season for weekly produce pickups at the hoop house garden – a share of everything that is harvested at the end of each week. All the produce is divided into the number of shares sold, bagged and sent home with the customers.
Sustainability student worker Morgan McKnabb spearheaded the GU & YOU CSA project. Since its inception, because of each student workers’ dedication and passion, GU & YOU CSA has continued to be very successful. Produce such as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, radishes, squash, spinach, watermelon, and more have left the hoop house with GU & YOU CSA customers, which is where the main portion of our produce goes. Leftover or excess amounts of produce are distributed to the campus food service or the local food pantry to reduce food waste.
