Farms to Grow, a nonprofit helping under-represented farmers create and maintain sustainable farms, is offering monthly community-supported agriculture (CSA) boxes this spring for $10 and $25. Participating farmers may be Black, Native American, Hispanic, or members of other minority groups; women; or farmers facing physical challenges.
Find Farms to Grow and many other local CSA programs in Edible East Bay‘s CSA Guide. CSA subscribers get fresh seasonal produce as they pay in advance to help stabilize their selected farm’s income. Along with the fresh fruits and veggies, many farms offer items like meat, seafood, eggs, flowers, and honey.
