Welcome to the 2020 Community Supported Agriculture Season!
Who's your farmer?
Crown Point Ecology Center’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is now open! There's nothing like bringing home certified organic and sustainably grown vegetables, herbs, and berries! Even better, knowing exactly where your food comes from, who grew it and how it was grown. There are many positive benefits to being a CSA shareholder, including knowing your produce is chemical free, trying new and delicious foods as well as saving money and time at the grocery store. Not only does being a CSA shareholder have a positive impact on you and your family, but you directly support our farm and community.
To join our CSA shareholders pay a flat fee at the beginning of the year that directly supports the cost of seeds, supplies and our farm internship program. Our season is 20 weeks and begins the week of May 31st and extends to the week of October 18th. There will be no pickups the week of June 31st. The early weeks of the CSA will include 5-7 vegetables and herbs each week. As the season progresses, the shares grow to 8-12 vegetables and herbs each week. We also occasionally partner with local organic farms to provide additional berries and unique produce to our shareholders. This is a great way to engage you with our local farming community!
Members of Crown Point receive a 10% discount on CSA shares plus additional member benefits throughout the year including events, plant sale entry and our summer farm and science camp!
Discounted prices will be visible after a membership option is selected. At least half your total is due with your application as a deposit.
CSA Shareholders assume the risks of each growing season such as drought, too much rain, unanticipated insect pressure, etc. However, we carefully plan a diverse portfolio of crop varieties to ensure a plentiful harvest, even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate. We're in this together!
