City Commons is a cooperative urban CSA, the produce you receive is all grown in Detroit at eight 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: Elizabeth Phillips of Iroquois Ave Farm grows vegetable on the east side of Detroit. Alice Bagley has been farming for nine years and runs Fields of Plenty where she moves her plants and produce all over Detroit by bicycle. Emily has traveled the world in search of good eats, only to find that she can grow the freshest food right in her own neighborhood at Singing Tree Garden, uptown Detroit. Occupy Yourself is a family farm that uses guerrilla farming techniques on the east side and is run by Roxanne and Donny Jones. Ambassador Fridge is a vegetable and flower farm run by Molly Hubbell in the North End neighborhood. Ollie Dodt grows flowers and herbs at Villekulla Flora on the near east side. Jeremy Kenward grows salad greens and other specialty crops among the trees in Brightmoor. Brittany Bradd grows a variety of fruits and vegetables on 2.5 acres using sustainable methods in Brightmoor.
Produce grown in the city on common space, with common resources, by and for common people.
