What is the Land Share Program?

  • Instead of growing grass on your lawns, we will prepare it and grow organic vegetables.

  • We take care of all aspects of urban farming including equipment use, seeding, water maintainence using organic farming practices, at no cost to the land owner.

  • You will receive a CSA Share (a variety of fresh organic produce) for 20 weeks every week from June to October, 2018 (valued at ~$600 or $30/week)*.

  • If at the end of the growing season, you no longer wish to utilize your lawn as growing space the follwing year, we will re-seed it with grass.

  • We welcome you to participate with the growing process - help would be greatly appreciated but is not expected!

  • * If your lawn/yard is smaller than 1500 sq.ft, we may put you on a waiting list or receive a smaller share of vegetables.

Why support local food production?

  • Agriculture is the third largest contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We are reducing our collective impact by growing food closer to home.

  • The community enjoys high quality food that is fresh, organically grown and more nutrient dense; this contributes to the health of our community.

  • Organic farming practices eliminate the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides that end up in our water system, it contributes to local biodiversity through the use of non-GMO seeds.

  • The presence of local food production inspires more people to learn about gardening and where food comes from.

  • The farm will help those in need through its fresh food donations to the local food banks.

  • Staying connected with local food production means preparing and eating food that grows with the seasons and leading a more sustainable lifestyle.

Make eating well a reality through sustainable urban farming.
