Eat local with a Greensgrow City Supported Agriculture (CSA) membership and get six months of great local food. The Greensgrow Farms CSA program provides a convenient way to enjoy fresh, local food. It’s also a great way to support local farms and the local economy, all the while creating a fresh food lifestyle for you and your family that reflects the local bounty of the seasons. Best of all? CSA brings the farm to you at PAH!
What’s in my CSA?
• A seasonal assortment (5-8 items) of locally grown, fresh vegetables.
• A selection of fruit that reflects the abundance of the season
• A dairy/protein option that includes your choice of eggs, tofu and much more
• 1/3 of all shares include artisan cheese
Should I Do a Full or Half Share?
The full share (weekly) is suitable for a family or sharing with a group of coworkers or friends. The half share option (every other week) is well suited to small households, or to those who travel often or are just learning to cook. With a half share, you’ll get the same amount of food as a full share, but you’ll pick up every other week.
