A Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Share is a weekly produce subscription, but it is so much more than that. It is essentially investing early in the farm’s season and reaping the rewards all year! What’s more, a membership in the Cultivate Hope CSA is an investment in the development of a healthy food culture in Cedar Rapids.
Our CSA is $500 and runs for 20 weeks from May 25 through Oct. 5. Pickup times are from 4-7 pm on Thursdays, and you’ll receive food grown on the Urban Farm as well as other local growers. We focus on the basics that you already know what to cook with, but try to include something new and exciting every week.
This year, we will also be providing some of our CSA shares to low-income households at a discounted rate. If you are interested, you can donate one-half, one-quarter, or the full price of a CSA to allow other families to receive fresh, local produce to make healthy meals at home. Click here to donate to the CSA program. Or, if you’d like to support the Cultivate Hope program as a whole, you can donate online by clicking here.
CSAs for the 2023 season are currently sold out. Please visit our weekly Farmers Markets for locally-grown produce from 4-7 pm starting May 25!
