Tangletown Gardens Partners with Burroughs to Raise Funds
Tuesday, February 27, 2018 9:40 AM

Burroughs is excited to partner with Tangletown Gardens and Wise Acre Eatery again this year!  Last year this effort raised over $1,200 for the Burroughs PTA. 10% of sales on any of the following go directly to Burroughs School.


There are four ways to help:


1) Sign up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. Starting in mid-June, participants receive 18 weeks of in-season, freshly picked, ultra fresh and flavorful vegetables, herbs and fruits grown without chemically based fertilizers or pesticides direct from the Tangletown Gardens farm just 40 miles from Minneapolis. The Tangletown folks are the ones sowing the seeds and nurturing the plants in the morning then delivering that harvest fresh each week to the Wise Acre parking lot for you to pick up Thursdays between 3-7 pm. It just doesn't get any more local than that! There are four share sizes available to choose from.  Visit the Tangletown Gardens website to view CSA options. 


2) Sign up for a $95, one-time Thanksgiving share.  This item includes a farm-raised, bronze breasted turkey (17 - 29 lbs, frozen), 1 quart poultry stock made by Wise Acre Eatery, 5 lbs of heirloom potatoes, 1 lb of Rochdale Farms' salted, old fashioned, hand-rolled butter, 5 lbs of winter squash, 3 lbs of onions and a fresh herb assortment of items such as sage, rosemary, and thyme for a Thanksgiving dinner. Click here to order or check the Burroughs website for more information.


3) Make ANY purchase in the Tangletown online shoppe and they will donate 10% of the proceeds to our school. 


4) Dine in at Wise Acre Eatery on Monday, March 19th from 4-8 pm. For all families with the Burroughs "dine-in" flyer (look for these to come home in student folders next month), Wise Acre will donate 10% of all food proceeds back to Burroughs. This would include menu items as well as any to-go orders, pantry items (honey, fruit chutneys, eggs, etc.) or frozen items (bacon, broiler chickens, pork chops, etc.) from their cooler case just inside the entry to the restaurant.


When purchasing CSAs, Thanksgiving shares, or items in the Tangletown online shoppe, make sure to use promo code BURROUGHS at checkout before March 31 to ensure your purchase will be counted toward our fundraising total.
