Urban Farm CSA PROGRAM
2023 CSA renewals have begun! CSAs will be open to new members soon.
Our food choices have economic and environmental impacts - both of which help support our local community. Enjoy this opportunity to support urban agriculture and help create more just and healthy local food systems with the purchase of a 21 week CSA from Grow It Green.
Enjoy the amazing taste of freshly harvested in-season produce grown with no toxic chemicals in healthy soil following regenerative agricultural practices. Transport yourself at The Urban Farm in the center of Morristown at 31 Hazel Street, Morristown, NJ
EXCITING NEWS: 2023 planning has begun! We look forward to offering a wide selection of vegetables and herbs. We are taking the lessons from the previous season to make the growing better for all.

2023 CSA pickup guidelines:
CSA pickups operate in inclement weather. In rare incidences of SEVERE, dangerous weather, we delay or cancel pickups with announcements made via social media and email when possible. We recommend following us on social media @gigmotown (Instagram) or Facebook for the most current updates.
Emails are sent weekly about what is available in your share and a recipe to help with meal planning.
Please bring a reusable bag/tote to load your veggies.
During distribution, a white board indicates the choices for the week. You get tuo assemble your share based on share level and produce desired. Quarter and Half share members can plan choices prior to arrival using the email.
Once your share is complete, weigh and record the weight for our end of season records (this helps with planning for next season).
As a bonus, members can make their own bouquet of flowers (when in season). Pruners are available at the bagging station for picking flowers. Please clean and return after use.
You may send another person to pick up your CSA with your name. Let them know if you have a Full, Half or Quarter CSA or just ask us.
If you are unable to pick up you CSA share on a Thursday or Saturday of that week, you join in our efforts to combat nutritional insecurity because the food is donated!
We operate 100% outdoors. Mask wearing is supported for participants to feel comfortable for CSA pickups.
Share what you are making at home, pictures of visits to the farm, etc. on social media (tagging us too please)! It is motivating and inspiring for those hot, summer days!
I love getting fresh produce locally. It lasts longer and tastes better than what I can get at the store, and there is a much smaller carbon footprint. Plus, the large amounts of greens and veggies encourage me to eat better. Grow it Green is the most affordable CSA I have found in this area, and I love supporting an organization that does so much to provide our community with healthy food.
Participating in Grow It Green's CSA is an amazing way to obtain delicious seasonal produce for a great price, support local sustainability efforts, and gain a sense of community. It is so much fun picking up your share each week. The Urban Farm is such a peaceful place to visit and many times, the highlight of my week.
