WEI provides a box of organically certified vegetables, fruits and herbs (about a full grocery bags worth, on average, per week) for 18 weeks from mid-June to mid-October to our CSA members. Organic, artisan bread and cookie shares are sold separately and varieties change each week. Our members pay an annual subscription fee and share with us the harvest, joys, rewards and inherent risks that are all a part of farming.

Members pick up their CSA shares from one of our drop site partners located throughout the Twin Cities Metro and North Branch areas or at our farm in the North Branch, MN. Members are also encouraged to become part of the farm experience by visiting or volunteering at the Womens Environmental Institute on Amador Hill.

As a MOSA Certified Organic Farm and Orchard, we submit to a rigorous third party verification process to ensure that we use no petrochemical insecticides, herbicides or fungicides on our produce or plant seeds that have been treated or genetically modified.

EVERY CSA SHARE HELPS TO SUPPORT OUR MISSION of ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE, AGRICULTURAL PROGRESS AND COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT

As well as being an organic CSA farm and orchard, the Women's Environmental Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit environmental research, renewal and retreat center and the Minnesota Growing Power Regional Outreach Training Center. Please visit us on the web at www.w-e-i.org for CSA ordering information and to learn more about WEI, our programs and partners.
