It’s a Win Win

Community Supported Agriculture

 

Join Our Fall/Winter CSA

 

 

Soil Born Farms’ community supported agriculture (CSA) program is a partnership between our non profit urban farms and a community of supporters. Twice a year CSA members purchase a "farm share" which helps us cover the costs of growing. In return, Soil Born Farms provides CSA members with an abundance of fresh from the field, nutrient-rich, organically grown produce each week during the season.

 

As a CSA member, the impact of your dollars goes beyond putting healthy, delicious food on the table. This investment in Soil Born Farms allows you to reconnect with the land, know your farmers and participate directly in a local food system. In addition, you provide valuable support for innovative education programs, food access initiatives and the development of a local community farm and education center.

 

 

Please consider adding a $100 donation to your share for our Healthy Food Fund.  Your donation will help get much needed, high quality produce to underserved communties in the Sacramento area.  You can make a donation online or add a donation to your payment.
