CSA Bonus Bucks
CSA Bonus Bucks

GardenShare's CSA Bonus Bucks program helps lower-income families purchase shares in Community Supported Agriculture farms.  This year, we had requests for $590 more than we had raised for the program and so have started a crowd-funding campaign for those last few dollars.

To date, we have $300 raised toward our $590 goal.  Go here to add your donation - any amount will help!
