Sarah went live with Lynn Cheney for the first Lettuce Be Local drop off at deadhorse hill. Cheney has put a unique spin on the traditional CSA model in hopes of helping more farmers get their goods into the people of Worcester’s hands and kitchens. She has strategically selected three pickup locations at area restaurants in different neighborhoods of the city in order to foster ease and walkability for residents. In addition to deadhorse hill downtown, pickups can be made at Lock 50 in the Canal District and simjang on Shrewsbury Street. Orders can be personalized based on each member’s needs from week to week and offers accessibility to Cheney’s wide network of farms (with the exception of dairy and meat.) Enrollment is still open; a half share is $400 and a full share is $750.
