The Enright Ridge Eco-Village in East Price Hill has been working for years to create a sustainable city neighborhood, and Urban Earth Farms is part of that vision.
In February 2009, the eco-village provided the impetus to organize a non-profit, community-sustained agriculture project, known as a CSA, headquartered at a former florist’s greenhouse at 824 Enright Avenue. The CSA is unique in that members all work together under the direction of a farm manager to grow and distribute the food raised in this urban agriculture project.
Members receive a weekly share for 27 weeks from May though November. The CSA grows a variety of produce, including many kinds of greens, herbs, corn, eggplant, tomatoes, beets, carrots, peppers, beans, broccoli, cabbage, garlic, potatoes, squash, and more. Member shares are available for pickup every Saturday morning during the growing season from 10:00 am to noon in the greenhouse on Enright Avenue.
Information about shares for the 2017 season is available on the Join our CSA page.

In February 2009 the Enright Ridge Urban Ecovillage in collaboration with Imago and the Huber Foundation decided to buy the former Heavenly Havens florist greenhouse in the 800 block of Enright Avenue and start an Urban Farm growing vegetables for a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
