CSA: Urban Roots
Listing last updated on Jan 26, 2011
The Urban Roots CSA will help fund the Urban Roots youth program, which uses sustainable agriculture as a means to transform the lives of young people as they increase the access of healthy food in Austin. Each week you will pick up your bag of produce from your designated market, either the Austin Farmers' Market Downtown on Saturdays or the Austin Farmers' Market at the Triangle on Wednesdays.
We have a 17 week CSA which will run from mid March until mid July. Your share will consist of a variety of vegetables and herbs grown on the Urban Roots farm and will change on a weekly basis. One share will supply a family of 2-4 fresh produce for a week, depending on your eating habits. Our cost is slightly higher to be sensitive to other farmers in Austin. Urban Roots is a non-profit organization that engages and empowers young people to become leaders in their community through sustainable agriculture. By joining the Urban Roots CSA you will be directly supporting the youth in our program and ensure that we can continue providing them with exciting youth development opportunities on the Urban Roots farm.
