CSA Bonus Bucks
Community Supported Agriculture

With CSA Sign-up Day fast approaching on Friday, February 26th, it's the perfect opportunity to treat your family to some wholesome, locally produced food!
 
Community supported agriculture (CSA) uses a pay-forward model to provide a financial security net for the grower. The consumer and farmer share in the bounty if a harvest is plentiful, and bear the deficit together if a season is unfruitful.
 
Investing in a share from one of the diverse CSA farms around the North Country means that you are supporting local farms along with your family's health. Choose from shares that include vegetables, fruit, meat, or even maple syrup and honey.
 
If you would like to take advantage of the local, fresh food offered by our CSA farms, but feel like you can't afford it, our Bonus Bucks program makes these shares more affordable. For more information on this program, please be in touch and we will send you an application when they are ready.
 
If you are a farmer who offers a CSA program and would be willing to accept these "scholarships" via GardenShare please be in touch with us at office@gardenshare.org or 261-8054.
