What is a harvest share?
The harvest share is an opportunity for you to get a weekly share of produce during the growing season. Membership is offered from July 3rd to November 16th, 2018 and grants you access to a share of our harvest available for pick-up on a weekly basis at a time that is convenient for you. Every week, you will receive an email with the list of vegetables available at the farm for that week.

Why choose the YMCA for your harvest share?

Fresh, local, organic food – organized around community action. By choosing us, you are supporting community agriculture and helping us meet youth education goals. In July and August, the YMCA Cedar Glen Organic Farm is home to our farm camp, where young people aged 6-12 learn how to grow food and why it matters. Not to mention, you get taste and freshness that’ll make any grocery produce green with envy!

For any questions e-mail the Cedar Glen Farm or call (289) 926-8659.
