Soil Born Farms’ community supported agriculture (CSA) program is a partnership between our nonprofit urban farm and a community of supporters. Twice a year CSA members purchase a farm share which helps us cover the costs of growing. In return, Soil Born Farms provides CSA members with an abundance of fresh from the field, nutrient-rich, organically grown produce each week during the season.
As a CSA member, the impact of your dollars goes beyond putting healthy, organic, delicious food on the table. This investment in Soil Born Farms allows you to reconnect with the land, know your farmers and participate directly in a local food system. In addition, you provide valuable support for innovative education programs, food access initiatives and the development of a local community farm and education center.

My friend and I shared a box. On the drop-off day, one of us would pick up the box and then meet at the house closest to the drop-off site. We would split up the produce while chatting about our day and planning meals around the contents of our box. On the odd days when one of us was too busy, I might split the box by myself and leave a bag on my porch for my friend to grab once she was free. We were able to use all the produce in the box plus we got to see each other more often!
My CSA box has changed my diet. It makes me so happy to pick up my box, unpack my veggies and plan my meals. I love the fresh taste and love that I am helping support local farms.
I have been pleased and amazed by how many more vegetables my husband, kids and I have been eating. Everything tastes so much better than what is available at the grocery store.
