Please read through these four pages to familiarize yourself with the CSA concept if you’d like to sign up.
Community Shared Agriculture is an intentional relationship between farmer, consumer, and the land that produces your vegetables.
Engage in your food system
By becoming a supporter of this model of agriculture, you are part of a community supports viable farm operations and, in turn, you are guaranteed a box of fresh, local vegetables, while helping to protect natural ecosystems. Not only do you know exactly where your vegetables are grown, you can be confident that your food is being grown in an environmentally sustainable manner. Both the risks and bountiful harvest are shared between the farmer and you, the shareholder.
This site has lots of information about our shares and what it is like to be a sharemember. We encourage you to read Whats in a share? before signing up. Then, read the CSA Contract and you can sign up through the link at the bottom of the page.
We will have vegetable drop-offs in five locations:
Glebe (2nd Avenue) (new in 2013!)
Ottawa South, just south of Billings Bridge
Westboro or Wellington Village (to be determined)
Manotick Station (at the farm)
