Get Your Fresh, Organic Produce Box Every Week! Grown by Merville Organics Grower’s Co-op
A CSA is a local, farm-based distribution system for organic produce. It’s all about increasing community access to high-quality, locally grown produce, but it’s also about farmer-eater relationships. CSA members pledge to support local farms, with growers and consumers sharing the risks and benefits of food production.
CSA members or subscribers purchase shares in the spring for a share of the anticipated harvest. Once harvesting begins, from July to September, members receive weekly shares of fresh, in-season produce from the farms.
With Merville Organics Growers’ Co-op, members receive tasty, nutritious produce from all 5 farms.
How it works:
- Members receive 14 weeks of organic vegetable box delivery from the last week of June to the first week of October
- Payment is given in late winter/early spring to provide necessary start-up funds for the farms
- Boxes are delivered to central pick-up locations in the Comox Valley, or at one of the farms once a week where members can pick them up
CSA Programs help us to become more connected – to the food we eat, the land that it grows from, and to each other. CSA programs are not a new idea, but they are truly innovative. Every organic farm needs a community of dedicated eaters and supporters, and we’re really excited to have you join in the delicious fun!
