What is a CSA?
Community-Shared/Supported Agriculture facilitates a connection between farmers and the surrounding community using a weekly subscription model. You make a financial commitment to secure a share of veggies stored in our root cellar and grown in our greenhouse from the first week of November to the last (4 weeks long). With this you also receive more bang for your buck with added value in every share! This is a great opportunity to eat in season, support a local farm, and a chance for us to restore the connection between people and where our food comes from in a sustainable way. The CSA model provides farmers with an equitable return for their skill, knowledge and labour; and establishes a strong foundation for sustainable agriculture all the while contributing to a healthier ecology. This system was created by Dr. Booker T. Whatley ; along with popular movements like “pick-your-own” and “farm-to-table” as he bridged the gap of social justice and organic agriculture. In his own words a CSA “enables farmers to plan production, anticipate demand and have a guaranteed market.” Our CSA members receive a curated farm share by the farmers themselves.
