What is Community Supported Agriculture

“Community-supported agriculture (CSA; sometimes known as community-shared agriculture) is an alternative, locally-based economic model of agriculture and food distribution. A CSA also refers to a particular network or association of individuals who have pledged to support one or more local farms, with growers and consumers sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA members or subscribers pay at the onset of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest; once harvesting begins, they receive weekly shares of vegetables and fruit, in a vegetable box scheme. ”

Our CSA has 3 month shares; you pay upfront for 3 months worth of our delicious vegetables, grown either by us, or by Encompass (who grow our seedlings). It is all 100% chemical free. We are going through the process of gaining Biodynamic Certification and will keep you updated on that.

How do I get involved?

Send an email to us – 2and5food@gmail.com – and we will let you know when the next round is open. We are limited in places and only open up to new members every 3 months.

Here’s what some of our members say about the CSA

“Apart from feeling a little overwhelmed with all the produce we are loving the boxes. Spreading the word already!”
“I made a kale dip with ricotta, lemon juice, garlic, onion and parmesan. Soup with pumpkin, capsicum and kale. Beetroot chips and i’m gonna do a big juice when i get home this arvo. I just eat the tamirillos as is, I love them.”
