The city of Peabody and the Peabody Institute Library have partnered with Clark Farm to bring a community supported agriculture program to Peabody this summer, and registration is now open. In a CSA program, members agree to purchase products from a local farm throughout a season. This agreement makes members shareholders of the farm, and each week, the farm delivers the products to the library for shareholder pickup. Peabody will offer two pickup times and locations: Tuesdays, 3:30 to 5 p.m., at the Main Branch, 82 Main St.; and Tuesdays, 1 to 2:30 p.m., at the West Branch Library, 603 Lowell St. The 20-week program begins Tuesday, June 10, and costs $300 for a small share and $500 for a large share. For more information and to sign up for a share, contact Bill Clark at 978-790-3303, or email@example.com.
