Thanks for your interest in purchasing a 2016 CSA share.
Keep in mind that your share is not officially reserved for you until we receive
a deposit. This farm is a partnership between Weavers Way Co-op, Weavers Way Community
Programs, Saul High School of Agriculture and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It's a method of food distribution
that directly links farmers and local community members, letting both share in the natural
risks and rewards of farming. We use organic practices on our farms, however we are not certified organic.
But we are more than just a CSA -- we grow food for the community
while also providing educational opportunities for Saul High School students.
Located on the campus of the W.B. Saul High School for Agricultural Sciences,
the farm is managed by Weavers Way staff in collaboration with Saul students
and teachers. The Co-ops' nonprofit arm, Weavers Way Community Programs, provides comprehensive
farm education through curriculum-based lessons and hands-on farming experience,
teaching students about small scale, sustainable vegetable production and distribution.
This CSA is also unique in that all your vegetables are grown at our two farms (The Mort Brooks Memorial Farm at the Awbury Arboretum
and the Henry Got Crops Farm at Saul High School).
We do not buy any vegetables from other farms. By buying a share in this farm, you
are supporting agricultural education while sharing the risks and benefits of small
scale, local agriculture.
