CSA – Community Supported Agriculture
Thinking about signing up for a CSA but want to learn more about the idea before you commit?
For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Here are True Garden’s basics: we offer a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box/bag of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.”
What Can I expect in my Basket?
We offer a Greens and Herbs share which contains a delicious mixture of different varieties of lettuces, greens, and herbs for salads, cooking, and juicing. We can harvest year round on many crops in our 5000 sq ft. state of the art urban greenhouse, even lettuce in the AZ heat! The contents of your share are chosen by us each week. You choose from two share sizes; a full share containing eight to ten living veggies, or a half share with four to five.
Be sure to sign up for our CSA newsletter/blog (at right side of page) for weekly updates on what will be included in your bags, recipes, and what’s happening at the farm. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at sales@TrueGarden.com or 480.305.8985.
Why buy from True Garden?
One hundred percent of the produce in your shares comes straight from our towers to you, living food. Most of our veggies are harvested within 24 hours of you picking it up. You will not find any fresher food unless you grow your own!
You are supporting the local movement and leading the way. Our goal is to bring awareness and education of the importance of growing locally and the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle.
Value for money
When you buy your produce at the grocery store, in most cases it is not living food with the roots intact for longer life. With True Garden, living food from our towers is exactly what you get. You can be confident in knowing you are getting great value for your money.
Buying from True Garden is as fresh as possible, and hence contains more nutritional value because we don’t harvest your produce before it is ready. Our produce is grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. After only a quick wash, eat it and taste the delicious, nutritious produce.
When you think sustainable, we are conserving water, land and there is minimal carbon footprint. It is as local as you can get.
Occasionally an item may get damaged and slip past us when the shares are packed. If you ever find anything that you are not happy with, just let us know on receipt of your order, and we will be happy to arrange for a replacement.
