College offers community-supported ag events

Lycoming College will host two events about community supported agriculture presented by Lara Judson, of Walnut Run Farms in Nippenose Valley.

Community-supported agriculture is an arrangement between a farmer and a customer. The customer buys part of the farmer’s harvest in advance and receives a share as the crops become available. This allows the farmer to grow the right amount of crops needed for the season and for the customer to receive the freshest produce possible.

The events, open to the public, will be held at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 26 and 1 p.m. March 25 in Heim Building G-09.

Reservations are required and may be made by contacting Amy Dowling, director of alumni relations, at 321-4134 or via email at

Walnut Run Farm is a multi-generational family farm that raises about 40 vegetable and herb crops, as well as cut flowers and lamb.
