THE SOUTH BRONX CSA is a community-driven initiative that brings the people of the community together to build the necessary resources and infrastructure to continue to transform the South Bronx into an accessible and affordable food oasis. Our mission is to create affordable access to locally and organically grown vegetables for everyone in the South Bronx and beyond. Join today!
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a community-based movement that creates affordable access to healthy foods for city-residents while allowing local farmers to thrive in an environment that is increasingly competitive and unfavorable. Before the growing season, CSA members purchase a share of food from a partnering local farmer, allowing the farmer to focus on farm duties instead of struggling to secure a customer base and competing against large agribusiness. For CSA members that means 20 weeks of fresh, locally grown, organic vegetables at an affordable price! Our CSA functions thanks to the volunteer efforts of all of our amazing members. In an effort to make healthy foods available to everyone, we offer sliding scale prices based on people’s incomes, accept payment installments, and we have always welcomed SNAP (food stamps) and EBT. Registration is open NOW!
