We owe our CSA members a BIG thank you!
In 2018, you purchased 122 CSA shares, including seven corporate shares! You didn’t just support a local certified organic urban farm, you supported a portion of our mission- To provide the dignity of hard work, and allowing people to be part of their own solution.
2018 saw 254 individuals enroll into our ServiceWorks program, joining the 1,239 participants since 2012. The majority of our program participants spend the bulk of their time on the Urban Farm, helping plant, harvest and process the produce that helps fund a portion of our program costs. All of their hard work has resulted in an over 70% rate of stable employment following ServiceWorks graduation. Your simple act of buying groceries for your home, helps ServiceWorks participants build transferable work skills so they can rebuild their lives, envision an attainable, stable future, and move on to support themselves.
As our 2018 growing season comes to an end, we’re looking forward to 2019 and hope to see many of you return as our customers and supporters. Check back in March to sign up for 2019 CSA shares and follow our Facebook page for updates!
