Urban Roots

CSA information: If you have a full share, you can expect approximately 5 – 15 lbs. of produce. Our goal is to provide sufficient vegetables each week for a family of four in each full share. Half shares are better for one to wo people and may not include every crop that we offer in a full share, but will be fairly similar.

Half shares are $280, full shares are $500 per season.
Deadline for signing up and full payment is April 15.

Veggies we may distribute include:
June: Kale, Turnips, Lettuce, Scallions, Swiss Chard, Beets, Greens, Radishes
July: Carrots, Beans, Garlic, Tomatoes, Lettuce, Kohlrabi, Turnips
August: Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Squash, Carrots, Beans, Peppers, Onions
September: Potatoes, Kohlrabi, Beets, Carrots, Tomatoes, Basil, Kale, Onions
October: Spinach, Kale, Lettuce, Beets, Swiss Chard, Broccoli
