My Csa Category: CSA Farm
The Youth Farm Stand Membership CSA is a program at Greater Newark Conservancy, an environmental nonprofit whose mission is to promote environmental stewardship to improve the quality of life of New Jersey’s urban residents. Our CSA gives members 12 bags of organically-managed fruit and veggies mostly grown on our urban farms or locally-produced. Bags are packed by youth interns and picked up by members every other week. The membership program runs for 6 months, June to November, and offers a personal share (1 bag) or family share (2 bags), depending on your needs. Our CSA is unique in that it gives job training to urban youth and formerly incarcerated men and women, while promoting nutrition, greening, environmental education, and sustainable urban agriculture in Newark, NJ.
