The Community Farm of Ann Arbor is Michigan’s oldest establishment organized under the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model. The farm celebrated its twenty-fifth/silver anniversary earlier this spring, and is preparing yet another celebration, a fundraising gala dinner to be held from 6-9pm on Thursday, September 13 at Cobblestone Farm.  For more information and to purchase tickets to the event—which will feature spectacular food from Zingerman’s Road House, live entertainment, and a silent auction— visit communityfarm2012benefit.eventbrite.com.

The farm, under the care of founders and master gardeners, Annie Elder and Paul Bantle, grows a wide variety of fruits and vegetables (all raised biodynamically), and boasts a sizeable apiary, which produces and supplies honey and beeswax products for nearly a hundred member families every year. The farm provides food to Avalon Housing, Faith in Action and the Women’s Center of Southeastern Michigan. To learn more visit www.communityfarmofaa.org —SS
