We are a CSA Only
About Us / Mother Earth's Urban Farm - CSA ONLY History: PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE CALLING: WE HAVE SHARES AVAILABLE THROUGH SUBSCRIPTION ONLY!!! DO NOT CALL ASKING TO BUY PRODUCE. Individuals & families only.
Do you want to make our planet a better place? Save wildlife? Combat Global Warming? Do some good for the neighborhood? Or participate in something exciting & cutting-edge? Do you wish you could feed your family fresh, organic fruits and vegetables? Ever wonder where your food comes from, or worry what kinds of weird “approved” chemicals were used to grow it?
We have a solution! Join our CSA today and receive fresh, organically grown produce straight from the Earth! Better for our planet, better for your family! By joining a local farm, especially one on reclaimed urban land such as ours, you prevent wild lands from being converted into farmlands. By buying organic, you prevent genetically modified organisms, nasty chemicals, and excess nutrients from contaminating your body and our planet. By using mulch and other soil conserving methods, we prevent runoff from entering local waterways.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Information - We accept only 20 families/shares each year, so sign up quickly to reserve your space. If you pay for all three seasons (Fall, Winter, Spring) in advance, you will receive a discount. Cash payments are also discounted. Beginning in September 2013, shares may be paid yearly.
We aim for 10 to 15 items (fruits and vegetables) per week, also herbs and flowers upon occasion. One item might be a head of lettuce or cabbage, a bag of baby greens, one bunch of broccoli, radishes, kale or carrots, etc. We think you’ll be very pleased with both the quality and quantity of your share of the garden! Everyone is allowed to work at the farm, either on Saturday to help harvest, or during the week to help with other “chores”. Don’t worry if you think you can’t help! We have plenty to do, even in the AC! We also have monthly work parties that are great fun.
