Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program



Community Supported agriculture program

As a community-supported agriculture (CSA) shareholder, you make a commitment to help support a farm by prepaying for a share (portion) of the weekly harvest. Shareholders share the risk of a less than bountiful harvest and reap the benefits of an especially bountiful harvest. Shareholders help the farm survive by insuring consistent income for supplies and maintenance. Our CSA shares contain organically-grown vegetables, fruit, and herbs grown here on campus and picked that morning by City College students, staff, and faculty. 

All proceeds from our produce sales go directly back into the program to support farm maintenance (as the College does not fund any farm maintenance or supplies).

Please email CityFarm@sdccd.edu if you have questions, or are interested in subscribing.

THE DETAILS

Cost:
Shares cost $20 per week, and payment is paid on a monthly basis.
Members may pay using cash or checks made payable to Seeds@City Urban Farm. We cannot accept credit or debit cards. Payment can be made in full at our farm stand location, at (or prior to) the first farm stand of the month.

Bags:
New members will be charged a one-time $20 deposit which provides two durable, reusable bags. We'll always have one of your bags ready for you filled with your share. If you choose to discontinue your subscription, you'll receive your $20 deposit with the return of your bags. 

Pick-Up:
Every Monday between 10:30am - 12:30pm
Pick up at the farm during farm stand hours 
Located between the BT and AH buildings on the corner of C St and 16th

Office Delivery:
We can deliver to your campus office for an additional $20 service fee/month. Please email CityFarm@sdccd.edu if you'd like to set up a campus delivery.

Contact Information:
We often send emails, newsletters and other announcements out to our CSA members. Please assist us by providing us with a valid email that is checked regularly. Also, in case we should have to contact you for another reason, please provide us with an alternate means of contact (phone call, text, personal email, etc).
