URBAN FARM CSA PROGRAM
2022 CSA's are almost sold out!
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 CSA from Grow It Green.
Enjoy the amazing taste of freshly harvested in-season produce grown with no toxic chemicals in healthy soil. Transport yourself at The Urban Farm in the center of Morristown at 31 Hazel Street, Morristown, NJ
Farming at The Urban Farm is about more than growing food. It is about stewarding the land. Our agricultural practices are deeply rooted in lessons learned from indigenous peoples. We are grateful for those that have shared ways to care for the plants, the soil, the water, air and the animals. Over the past 12 years we have used these methods to create healthy soils to grow the healthiest, nutrient dense produce. Our produce is grow without toxic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or GMOs. Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares offer our customers a unique experience in town where you get to know the farmers and see where your food comes from.
The funds from the CSA are spent early in the season to buy the seeds, nutrients and implements essential for that season. Regardless of the weather, you are an important part of the local food system and the weekly harvest. You are a part of the farm- its highs and lows, as there are many inputs to growing food that are not in the farmers' control. In the past few years, we transitioned to a build your own share system, where you choose what goes in your bag from 30 different varieties of vegetables over the course of the growing season to reduce food waste.
EXCITING NEWS: New items for 2022 - cilantro, thyme, lavender, 15 varieties of hot and sweet peppers, black cherry and orange heirloom tomatoes throughout the season! Tomatoes will be available earlier this year due to a new trellising system.
'Pick your own flowers' offered again this season! We will keep you updated on fresh herbs. The herb garden is currently being replanted with donor support. We have planned this new area introducing new varieties coming into production in 2022.
Please note the following:
CSA pickups operate in inclement weather. In rare incidences of SEVERE, dangerous weather, we will 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. 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!
