Summer Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) Project

First Pres is participating in a CSA this summer so members can have access to a steady supply of fresh vegetables in partnership with a farmer of color, Sankofa Farms in Efland.  The CSA has been developed in collaboration with RAFI-USA’s Farm and Faith Partnerships Project, and with two other congregations, Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and Eno River UU Fellowship.
