CSA Stands for Community Supported Agriculture, a sustainable way of giving. The Healthy Basket is a school wide CSA that allows the families to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce locally grown and delivered directly to your home by your children.
Our Middle school students are in charge of managing and packaging the CSA at Joseph Fields Farm. They also learn about organic agriculture as well as culinary and building skills while they are at the fields. All of this without any of the cost.
The early CSA payment enables the farmer to plan for the season, purchase new seeds, make equipment repairs, and more. Joseph Fields Farm gives back a percentage of the sales to Earth Heart Growers, the non-profit organization that supports the gardening, culinary and science programs at the schools.
