A CSA member buys a “share” of the harvest in advance of the growing season. This helps LCF with the capital needed early in the year to buy seeds and supplies. When the growing season is underway, the CSA shareholder receives a weekly share of the farm’s harvest; out of the ground fresh, high quality, vegetables grown using organic practices. The CSA share distribution is set up “market style”, with shareholders filling their own bags or boxes with specified quantities of vegetables.
LCF sell CSA shares in order to be able to operate our program and fulfill our mission of hunger relief. You can purchase a share for yourself, and you can donate towards the price of a CSA share for a local family. Every year we donate thousands of pounds of fresh and healthy vegetables to local families and food pantries in our area.

Getting a spot in our work share program is not guaranteed by signing up. We have a very limited number of work shares available, which we aim to primarily benefit those who cannot afford to purchase a share. This is a wonderful educational opportunity, where you will be spending time in the field learning about growing practices and techniques. Send us an email to admin@LittletonCommunityfarm.org to let us know if you are interested in this program (information is located on the bottom of the form).
