Turtle Island Gardens is a local farm that uses bio-dynamic growing methods to promote biodiversity in the local environment and community. Our farm is based in Windsor Mill, Maryland, but the gardens are spread throughout the Baltimore community. We offer a variety of different kinds of CSA shares in an effort to aid communities in the shift towards local agriculture, and to provide quality produce to families with limited income.
Turtle Island Gardens maximizes growth potential with the knowledge of soil biology and cultivation, co-operative planting, and plant species. At Turtle Island Gardens, we use raised beds, hoop houses, greenhouses, and aquaponics systems to produce yields year round for our CSA holders.
Turtle Island Gardens offers Seasonal CSA shares, Labor CSA shares, and Land CSA shares, so that everybody gets to eat. Land shareholders are those families that wish to have an organic garden in their back yard, we, at Turtle Island, install the beds/garden and care for the area as the season goes on allowing the shareholder to have their food grow literally in their backyard. Our labor CSA shares are for those who wish to learn more about the processes of farming and sustainability in a hands-on, learn as you do, way. The shareholder earns themselves food for the season, while learning how to create food for themselves and the community in the future. Our seasonal CSA shareholders receive heirloom, organic quality produce of all kinds every week for the length of the season.
Turtle Island Gardens is not certified organic because our practices are so "organic" through and through that we believe organic certification today does not justify the effort and care that actually go into the fruit and vegetables we produce. If you are interested in knowing more about Turtle Island Gardens or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
