How Does Providence CSA's Veggie Share Work?
Over the season, we grow over 200 different varieties of certified organic vegetables in about 70 different categories. Each weekend, Ryan & I walk the gardens and "build" your CSA garden share... based on what's ready to harvest, the size of your share & what we put in your box last week.
Then we send you the list of the items we chose, along with all the other items available. (That way, you may switch out your vegetables to fit your likes and needs.
Just email what you would like to add OR changes you'd like to make us by Tuesday night, and we're all set...
But in case you forget... We will also be bringing a "switch out cooler" each Thursday that members may use to exchange items.)
What's in a Providence CSA Share?
Each week, we strive to give you a different box. Variety is key in a great CSA. Most of the time our CSA boxes are comprised of these elements, but remember, you can always switch out items!

It's hard to get 4-6 servings of antioxidant-rich veggies in a day.

These are just a few examples of the many rules we follow to earn our GAP certification each year.
