2018 CSA Shares
When you sign up early for our CSA you are investing in our season. This gives us, as farmers, the ability to make decisions, buy seeds, order compost, and build infrastructure to grow the food you will enjoy all summer.
As a member you will eat locally with the seasons! Our weekly staples include a salad mix, kale or chard, and a fresh herb.The early veggie boxes contain a lot of greens, some roots and strawberries. As the spring progresses to summer, your weekly boxes will include produce like peas, carrots, beets, tomatoes, garlic, eggplants, fennel, cabbages, zucchinis, cucumbers, leeks and more. Every now and then, you will taste the unique flavours of things you may not be used to like: radicchio, padron peppers, kohrabi, and fava beans for example.
Given space limitations and storage restrictions, we do not grow broccoli, cauliflower, sweet peppers, storage onions, or sweet corn.
Every Tuesday between 4-7pm, throughout the months of June-October, we will have your vegetables ready for pick up outside of the Mighty Oak Café at 18th and Columbia St. In the event that you cannot pick up your box, we ask that you invite a friend or family member to pick up on your behalf. It makes for a wonderful gift! As we do not have storage capacity, all left over produce, that is not picked up, is given to our neighbourhood Women’s Rape Relief Shelter.
