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.

Exciting News – YMCA Cedar Glen Outdoor Centre is expanding to better serve you and our local communities

Plans have been approved to renovate the lower level of the main lodge into a fully licensed child care facility. Supporting our growing local communities this child care centre will offer infant, toddler and preschool programs. Construction will begin later this spring with the child care set to open in early 2019.

To allow for these important renovations, we'll need to close the lower level of the main lodge and adjust some of our program areas such as the lodge campfire pit for short periods of time. Beyond that our overnight accommodations, summer day camp programs, dining hall food services, organic farm and all other program areas like our ropes courses, outdoor pools and much more will be open and ready for your next visit. We know how important it is for you to be aware of this exciting news in advance of your visit. We appreciate your understanding and can't wait for your new-and-improved Y to be ready!

Thank you for your support as we work to modernize our centre. If you have any questions, please email us at cedarglen@ymcagta.org.
