Support local agriculture and community/school gardens
Our communities have been working hard to increase local food production, which positively impacts public health, reduces pollution and empowers community members and youth.
The Farm to Table Community Supported Agriculture project (CSA) is a youth and local resident run non-profit venture led by Urban Tilth. Their mission is to ensure fresh, 100% locally-grown produce is available to all West Contra Costa residents.
The CSA is currently offering 3 different memberships, each of which will get you a 10-pound box of fresh, locally-grown seasonal fruits and vegetables each week.
$25 week ($5 is tax-deductible and makes it possible for a low-income family to pay only $10 per box)
$10 week, for low-income families
For an extra $2.50 per week, you can have your box delivered anywhere in West County.
There are currently two pickup locations:
AdamsCrest Farm, 5000 Patterson Circle (off Arlington Blvd), Richmond
Urban Tilth Office, 31 Maine Ave (off 2nd St.), Richmond
If we get 10 members to sign up to get their boxes here at my office, we can become another pickup location! If you'd like to join us and pickup at 11780 San Pablo Avenue, Suite D (near Cutting Blvd), in El Cerrito, please indicate so on your application or call 510-232-0911 or email email@example.com
I've already signed up to get my box here at my office!
All proceeds for Urban Tilth's CSA program support youth and community programs at local school and neighborhood gardens.
