Community Supported Agriculture: In Your Community
Our urban CSA brings a whole new meaning to the term CSA. By supporting a Young Farmer Milwaukee residents can support agriculture in their own community.
Each year our Young Farmers get to take on an additional CSA member each year. This program allows our youth to gradually take on more responsibility, helping them grow their skill set to become independent, urban farmers.
This unique approach to farming here in Milwaukee offers a number of benefits for CSA members:
1.) CSA members know who is growing their produce
The Young Farmers take pride in their produce. Our Young Farmers don’t have their own staff or interns (yet!). When you sign up for a CSA with a Young Farmer, there’s one person growing the produce, with pride, delivered to a nearby pick up site for you. Simple as that.
2.) CSA members can get involved more easily
- Attend our events and workshops without leaving the city. Learn about sustainable home gardening from Young Farmers and Groundwork Milwaukee staff
- Volunteer: in the garden or incorporate your skills into our curriculum by teaching a lesson for the Young Farmers – please let us know if you would like to get involved as a community partner educator
3.) Choose your own produce
Because of the direct relationship between the Young Farmers and CSA members, members choose what is grown. Click on the our Menu icon to see the list of options. Members can may choose between one of the five options.
Changes and substitutions are available, please contact us to find what crops would work best for you.
CSA shares are $350.
