Joseph Fields Farm, with the help of Earth Heart Growers, offers a CSA system (Community Supported Agriculture) for the schools called The Healthy Basket. The Healthy Basket allows families to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce locally grown and delivered directly to their homes by their children. The CSA, managed, packaged and conveniently distributed at the schools by the students, is made available at the lowest cost possible.
Middle school students supervise the managing and packaging of the CSA at Joseph Fields Farm. They also learn about organic agriculture while developing culinary and
building skills while they are at the farm, all at minimal cost to the program. The early CSA payment enables the farmer to plan for the season, purchase new seeds, make
equipment repairs and more. Joseph Fields Farm returns a percentage of the sales income to Earth Heart Growers, the non-profit organization that supports the gardening,
culinary and science programs at the schools.
