Viking Supported Agriculture
The VSA is Western’s Community Supported Agriculture program, bringing students, staff, and faculty in contact with Whatcom/Skagit County produce and producers. By signing up, you will receive a box of local, fresh, organic fruits and veggies June 15 – October 26, 2017. Boxes will be dropped off at the WWU Performing Arts Center every Thursday from 10am – 5pm.
The VSA program is a program of the Office of Sustainability and was initiated through a Whatcom Community Foundation grant to help our community support sustainable local agriculture and make nutritious food available to members of the Western community. Students and employees can see all of the box options and add-on items and learn more about the CSA and farm here
