Join the CSA

Who we are
Founded in 2009 by the Enright Ridge Urban Ecovillage (ERUEV), Urban Earth Farms provides shares of vegetables for up to 45 families through our Community Supported Agriculture Program (CSA). CSA Shareholders receive a weekly share every Saturday morning from May – November. Pick up is between 10 am & Noon at our greenhouse at 824 Enright Avenue.

How we work
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) means our food is grown and financially-supported by our shareholders.  Most CSAs are created by forming a contract between a farmer and a group of people who pay in advance for the crops the farmer grows. In addition to providing food for full paying shareholders, we offer a CSA Workshare Program. We provide our working shareholders with in-depth, hands-on training in urban farming, and in exchange, workers receive a weekly share of the bounty. Limited number of 10 workshares are available.

Produce
Our veggies taste the best because they’re local & freshly harvested in-season.  Shares will include: Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Chard, Collards, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Garlic, Fresh Herbs, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Onions, Peas, Green Beans, Hot & Sweet Peppers, Potatoes, Salad Greens, Winter & Summer Squash, Heirloom & Red Tomatoes, Turnips, and More.

Becoming a Shareholder
