Community Supported Agriculture Info Sessions

Community Supported Agriculture Info Sessions

Our CSA program members get first pick of the fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs grown locally at the YMCA Cedar Glen Organic Farm. Here's how it works:

  • Every week from August 14th – October 7th, we'll send you a list of produce available from our farm. You choose what you want to eat, we bring it downtown for you, and you stop by the Cooper Koo YMCA on Saturday mornings between 9 am and noon to pick it up.
  • You'll get to choose from different options each week, including lettuce, kale, chard, spinach, arugula, beets, carrots, onions, radishes, turnips, tomatoes, beans, peppers, squash, peas, zucchini, pumpkin, parsley, dill, cilantro, basil, thyme, and sage.
  • Just by getting a CSA membership, you're supporting community agriculture and helping an organic, local farm flourish.
  • You're also helping educate youth about where their food comes from. In July and August, the YMCA Cedar Glen Organic Farm is home to our farm camp, where kids ages 9–12 learn how food grows, what happens to it after it's harvested, and what organic produce means for their health.

Ready to sign up? Our Cedar Glen staff will be at the Cooper Koo YMCA on January 21st and February 4th between 9 am and noon to answer all your questions and get you registered in the program.
