Seed CSA, Large
Opens 12/1/21 - Closes 2/1/22
We have 4 membership tiers for urban/container gardens all the way up to a homestead scale. For the Large Seed CSA we send you 5 shipments of seed with growing instructions to help you to plant the right seeds at the right time for abundant food, beauty and medicine.
Here is a unique opportunity to be part of a community of seed stewards through enrolling in a membership with our Community Supported Agriculture program for this year. We will also include perks such as special varieties that we don't offer normally through our website, including unreleased breeding projects and rare seed that we have in limited quantities.
For those of you unfamiliar with the CSA model, it was developed as a way for people to get more involved with the source of sustenance - our farms and farmers through supporting them directly. Here is how it works: you sign up early in the season, helping the farmer with dearly needed early season cash-flow and a known customer base. In exchange you receive more than fair market value in produce (the typical model) for your investment.
The work of developing regionally adapted vegetable varieties is not easy work - it can take years of growing and select with careful observation. However, this is crucial work that helps our food crops to evolve to thrive in organic garden conditions. We are passionate about this work and honestly feel that it is one of the most relevant responses to climate change that we can be doing in this time. We are reaching out to our valued community of seed customers to help support us in doing this.
