The Youth Garden Project is a production and educational garden. We grow food in our garden and orchard using organic growing practices and sell our local produce to the community through a variety of avenues. See below for options to purchase our fresh fruits and veggies!

When is the CSA Season?
The Youth Garden Project CSA runs from late-May through mid-October (dependent on first frost). Our hope is to provide a 20 week season for a CSA share.
How Does it Work?
Every week our CSA produce is harvested same-day as pick-up.  Our garden crew works hard to manage the food production and provide as much food per week as possible. Members are always welcome to volunteer to have an increased connection to their food (Please call ahead if you would like to volunteer!).
How Much Does it Cost?

2018 Membership Share Prices:

$375 for one share (1-2 people)
$700 for the Family Share (3-4 people)
An optional extra $50 goes toward the YGP ‘Care Share’ whereby the CSA community will provide a basket for a local family, identified through our programming, for which a basket can provide the exciting potential for education and transformation.
Am I a good candidate for a CSA?

You may be a great CSA candidate If…

  • You or your family have the time to cook and enjoy lots of fresh produce incorporated into your meals.
  • You enjoy trying new ingredients you have never used before or don’t use often.
  • You are okay with receiving something in your weekly share you don’t love from time to time.
  • You are willing to eat seasonally. For example, tomatoes won’t be ready in early June, and July is too hot for an abundance of lettuce.
  • You understand that what is provided in the weekly share is based on the garden’s production.
  • You are able to make the scheduled weekly pick-up time (Tuesdays from 3-8pm at the Youth Garden Project)

You may NOT be a great candidate for a CSA if…

  • There are two or more common vegetables you don’t like.
  • You want to know exactly what will be in your share each week.
  • You would prefer to stick to what you know and not experiment with new vegetables or fruits.
  • Your cooking style requires a minimum quantity level of an ingredient.
  • Your schedule does not permit you to prepare foods using garden fresh ingredients.
  • You know in advance that you cannot make the scheduled weekly pick-up time.
How Do I Pick Up my CSA?

CSA Pickup is every Tuesday evening after 3pm, located at Youth Garden Project in the Shafer Home back room.

CSA members are expected to arrive with tote bags or a box to bring their share home in.
