The St. Sebastian Human Concerns Committee collaborates with Scotch Hill Farm, a small Wisconsin vegetable farm, to bring seasonal, local organic produce to St. Sebastian Parish and the surrounding Washington Heights and Wauwatosa neighborhoods.
This approach is called Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA). Joining a CSA farm is one way to respond to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops call: “We hope that Catholics throughout our country, in urban, suburban, and rural areas, will join in the effort to promote a food and agricultural system more focused on overcoming hunger, providing a decent living for farmers and farm workers, and protecting the earth and its resources.”
Each spring, the parish hosts a day for farmers to meet people, answer questions and take registrations for weekly vegetable deliveries. Then, throughout the summer, the farmers bring vegetables to the St. Sebastian parking lot, and subscribers come to pick them up. New in 2018 – the produce will be dropped off every other week.
