City Commons CSA

City Commons is a cooperative urban CSA, the produce you receive is all grown in Detroit at five market gardens located throughout the city. The food you receive each week has been grown using sustainable methods, meaning that we do not use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.

Produce for City Commons CSA is grown by many farmers: Chris McGrane grows food on the east side of Detroit. Ryan Harroun and Elizabeth Phillips found their shared passion for farming along myriad paths and have teamed up to run Vinewood Knoll Farm in Southwest Detroit. Alice Bagley has been farming for six years and runs Fields of Plenty where she moves her plants and produce all over Detroit by bicycle. Emily and Meg have traveled the world in search of good eats, only to find that they can grow the freshest food right in their own neighborhood at Singing Tree Garden, uptown Detroit. Minehaha Forman was raised on a subsistence farm in Belize, Central America and feels right at home farming in Detroit
