What’s a CSA?:toms2012

A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm by purchasing a seasonal share of the harvest. You pay for your share of the harvest up front, when we need to pay for seeds, compost and soil amendments, equipment rental, irrigation repairs & labour. For 20 weeks June through mid-October you get a weekly box of veggies.

The Veggie Box:

From late May until mid-October you will be provided a WEEKLY box of freshly harvested, seasonal produce. The contents of the harvest box varies from week to week, with a selection of 5-8 items each week.

The Full Harvest Share is designed to feed 2 voracious veggie lovers or a small family. We have singleton vegans who can munch the whole box up themselves too. People find friends, colleagues and family to share their share with, if it’s too much for just themselves.

We grow tried, tested and true varieties that grow well in our climate: Sugar Snap Peas, Baby Salad Greens, Arugula, Kale, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Stirfry Greens, Pac Choi, Chinese Cabbage, Gai Lan, Radishes, Daikon, Kohlrahbi, Broccolini, Rutabaga, Turnips, Beets, Carrots, Beans, Tomatoes, Eggplant, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Winter Squash, Potatoes, Bulb Fennel, Garlic, Leeks, Scallions. Herbs: Mint, Basil, Dill, Cilantro, Parsley, Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, Chives.

You also have the option of a weekly or bi-weekly bouquet of beautiful cut flowers. Beautiful on your kitchen table, or to give to a special someone.

    • Full Harvest Share: $600= Avg $30 value for 20 weeks
    • Weekly Flowers: additional $270 for 18 weeks
    • Bi-Weekly Flowers: additional $135 for 9 weeks

An initial deposit reserves your share, with balance of payment due by the first pick-up day. We can arrange customized payment plans that suit your needs.

StrollinGardenPick-up:

Pick-up of weekly shares are Tuesdays, 3-6pm at the Farm, 57th & Cambie, Vancouver. There is also an on-farm self-serve pick-up option if you can’t make it before 6pm. We are at 700 West 57th Avenue on the western lawns of George Pearson Centre, accessible via Heather Street.

For folks not able to make it to the farm we have 10 spaces available at a second pick-up location on Tuesdays, 4-7pm at Faculty Brewing, Ontario & 2nd Ave for an additional fee of $25 for the whole season.

Home delivery is available within the Cambie Corridor, for an additional fee of $25 for the whole season. To be eligible for home delivery you need to be able to provide a shady, accessible yet protected location.

What if you’re going away, or can’t pick up one week?

We will have 1 extra week of harvest at the end of the season, for people that missed a week & gave us 24 hours notice to put their share of the week’s harvest on hold.

If you are away for an extended period, offer your share to family or friends that can pick up while you are away. They’ll love you for it & it provides us the continuous community support we need to keep doing what we do the whole season through.

Community:

We encourage you to visit the farm, anytime. There’s usually always someone around: Jess or Karen, our volunteers and community gardeners.

Tuesday afternoons, harvest share pick-up days, we enjoy warm afternoons in the sun. Your kids visit the slide, pick raspberries and maybe get to helpin’ the farmers in the field. You meet your friends to picnic and visit, have a chat with your farmers. Or you grab your grub and rush home to cook up your fresh veg for din dins.

We host an annual potluck where we dine al fresco at the market garden. We also have work parties throughout the growing season for members to join in on the field work. To see past activities check out our blog.
