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?

2017 Membership Share Prices:

$350 for one share (1-2 people)
$650 for the Family Share (3-4 people)
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 between 3pm and 8pm, 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.

Produce is available weekly May 30th through mid-October. Pick up at the Youth Garden Project on Tuesdays from 3:00 to 8:00PM. Any produce not picked up on Tuesdays will be donated to local organizations or sold at the Moab Farmers’Market to benefit the Youth Garden Project, unless arrangements are made in advance. The produce that is included in your weekly share is based on what is available in the garden and orchard at the time of harvest. Vegetables are planted throughout the Garden at the beginning of the season to accommodate CSA needs and numbers. At the YGP garden, soil, planting, and plant maintenance is carefully managed to maximize growing and overall quality of produce. Payment is due via credit card, check, or cash before registration is considered complete. By submitting your registration form, you agree to the terms of YGP's CSA.
    A single share is typically intended for 1-2 people. A double share is typically intended for 3-4 people or for anyone wanting to preserve a portion of their share.
