CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a subscription to sustainable, locally grown produce that is distributed to members throughout the harvesting season. It is a form of upfront investment that allows our urban farmers to continue growing year after year. Our Youth Farm Stand CSA members enjoy the quality of fresh fruits and vegetables for their family, while supporting their local farmer. We call our CSA the Youth Farm Stand Membership because the produce is harvested and packed by youth. Because we grow the majority of our produce on urban farms, we think of it as Newark Supported Agriculture.
Joining the Youth Farm Stand Membership is a win-win situation because you get the freshest possible ingredients from our urban farms and our urban farmers feel secure knowing our demand upfront. It helps us stay focused on growing healthy, organically-managed food for our members. Joining a CSA is a positive action you can take today that has profound impacts on your health, your local economy, and the environment.
