Joining the CSA at DeLaney Community Farm

The DeLaney Community Farm is currently undergoing changes. Please check back for updated information and if you are interested in a share in 2017, please sign up for the interest list here.

Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a relationship of mutual support and commitment between a local farmer and community members who invest in an annual membership, which covers the farm’s production cost of growing vegetables. In turn, members receive a weekly share of the harvest during the local growing season. This arrangement helps to guarantee the farm a tangible source of support.

How DeLaney Is Different
DeLaney’s programs evolved from the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model. CSA is a relationship of mutual support and commitment between a local farmer and community members who invest in an annual membership, which covers a portion of the farm’s production cost of growing vegetables. In turn, members receive a weekly share of the harvest during the local growing season. This arrangement helps to guarantee the farm a tangible source of support.

DeLaney is similar to a CSA in that our members invest in an annual membership, and receive a weekly share of the harvest. However, DeLaney differs from the traditional CSA model in many ways.

Our members create a healthy and resilient community by investing in and actively supporting DeLaney’s mission, goals, and community programs. Our members agree to provide volunteer GiveBack hours and attend Saturday workshops. They are encouraged to contribute to potlucks and other events, as well as become knowledgeable about DUG’s work, in order to deepen community relationships. Some members participate in intensive training programs.
