About Us / Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm History: Since 1988, the Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm has provided an opportunity for a community of people to support a local farm. Our approximately 300 members pay a pre-determined fee for a share in the harvest, which include a huge variety of incredibly delicious vegetables and fruits. Our farmers use biodynamic methods and do not use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. While we welcome volunteer labor, members are not required to work on the land. Members generally come to our Gardenhouse distribution center to pick up harvested vegetables either weekly or every other week. While we do not deliver our produce, we do have self-organizing pick-up groups in NJ. Currently located in Teaneck, Montclair, Caldwell, Morristown, Verona, Maplewood/South Orange and Glen Rock, these groups are an excellent option for those who live at a distance.New groups are enthusiastically received.Thanks to our multiple greenhouses and root cellars, vegetables are available throughout the year. Sign-ups for the shares begin early in the year and we sell out by spring. We do maintain a waiting list so please contact us if you're interested. Commitment forms, a brochure, and a list of crop yields can be downloaded from our website.The Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm is passionate about sustainable agriculture. Our work not only increases the quality of the soil, but also enhances the quality of our relationships to the land and each other. The farm is a working alternative to the market system's injustices and ecological devastation. It is a social as well as an economic alternative, and it's a beautiful, family-friendly place as well. Come on out and visit -- a call in advance is helpful.
