What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a food production and distribution system that directly connects farmers and consumers. In short: people buy “shares” of a farm’s harvest in advance and then receive a portion of the crops as they’re harvested.
Farmers earn important early-season capital and have a guaranteed market for their produce. Barring a disastrous harvest, consumers enjoy overall lower food costs, field-fresh produce, and greater access to high-demand fruits and vegetables like long-stem strawberries and heirloom tomatoes.
Most CSAs require an annual or quarterly buy-in and provide weekly deliveries or pick-ups, but some well-established programs offer monthly or even weekly “memberships.” Many CSAs also offer farm visits, u-pick days, and other special events for members. Learn More
Herbal Share Program
Wonderment Gardens is pleased to introduce our Herbal Share Program. Beginning January, 2015 we will offer “shares” to the public consisting of 5 boxes per year, one for each season plus a holiday box. Delivered right to your door.
The Herbal Share Program is based on the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model. For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food, and farming products directly from the farmer. Wonderment Gardens herbal shares program (HSP) is based on this idea.
