The OSU Organic Growers Club is an all-volunteer, student-run, organic farming project that began in 2000, founded by a handful of undergraduate students.  Since then, the group and the farm have grown into a forward thinking community of students, staff, and faculty that have a common interest in food, fun, and above all experiencing the reality that is ecosystem sustenance. The OSU Organic Growers Club farm is located on ~2 acres of OSU agricultural research land and has gained the support of many forward thinking faculty and administrative folks, who have helped them grow into a student organization with over 300 members and 400 community clients!

Your chance to enjoy the hard work and time of these student farmers is right now! Fresh, organic blueberries are currently on sale for only 2 lbs/$10. These 2 lb boxes are only available a limited time, so you’ll want to grab a few before they’re gone. And don’t forget – blueberries are easily freezable and delicious as jams/preserves, so you can enjoy this harvest long after the season is over. The Organic Growers Club is also tabling at the Pacific Seafood Market on Fridays from 1:00-5:30 pm so you can buy them in person. The address is 1925 SE 3rd Street.

Blueberries are something of a superfood, low in calories but high in fiber and vitamins A, K, and manganese. Research has even shown that blueberries have some of the highest antioxidant levels of any fruit! Blueberries have anti-aging properties and can even lower the risk of chronic diseases. Plus, they taste delicious!

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to get certified organic blueberries from Oregon State University’s own organic farm, run by students and faculty. Contact James Cassidy at james.cassidy@oregonstate.edu for a special order (including bulk special orders) or visit the Pacific Seafood Market on Fridays between 1:00 and 5:30 pm. You won’t want to miss out on this sale – the blueberries will only last a couple weeks. Go organic, Beavs!
