Viking Supported Agriculture


VSA is Western’s Community Supported Agriculture program, connecting students, staff, and faculty with Whatcom/Skagit County produce and producers. By signing up, you will receive a box of local, fresh, sustainably sourced food directly from farmers. Getting good food to people in crisis times and supporting local and sustainable agriculture is a highly supportive activity that each one of us may be able to participate in for the greater good of our community.

Fall/Winter CSA Boldly Grown Farm Returns for 2023-24

We are happy to announce Boldly Grown Farm is returning for another season with the Viking Supported Agriculture program hosted by the Sustainability Engagement Institute.  Anyone in the WWU community can sign up for a bi-weekly delivery of fresh, local, and organic produce delivered directly from their fields to our lobby in High Street Hall.

Boldly Grown Farm is a certified organic family farm in the Skagit Valley.  Established in 2015 by Amy Frye and Jacob Slosberg. They are proud to grow some of the best winter vegetables in the PNW. The winter CSA program is a unique opportunity to receive a regular supply of fresh local food during the traditional off-season. This CSA runs from November 2, 2023, through March 21, 2024, with delivery to our office in High Street Hall on the main Bellingham campus. The boxes feature a variety of staple and specialty items, including value-added products.

Donate VSA Shares to Students in Need

Food security continues to be challenging for our community members. We have set up a dedicated fund to receive your donations to help purchase fresh organic produce for students in need. Since its inception in 2019, our community has donated a total of $1,619, the equivalent of 134 weeks of fresh produce, for our community members experiencing food insecurity. Thank you!
