DENVER FARM SHARE PROGRAM
SustainEd Farms is excited to continue our Denver Farm Share Program in 2022 and offer weekly produce from our school garden sites to a limited number of subscribers.
2022 Farm Share Program
For $25 a week, you will receive a weekly bag of fresh produce from our school garden sites delivered to your door throughout the summer and early fall. The first delivery will be on June 29th, and the final delivery will be on October 5th.
By joining our farm share program, your fee is a donation that supports our work with Denver students and food justice throughout Denver. Your contribution allows us to provide maintenance and programming to over 20 school gardens across Denver. Additionally, 20% of all harvested produce for this program is donated directly to local food pantries.
Please note: Your weekly bag will vary in size and produce throughout the summer, and participation is limited. The first weeks will be lighter and contain more greens, and the later weeks will be significantly larger with more variety. Crops you can expect throughout the summer will include lettuces, spinach, arugula, radishes, beets, kohlrabi, peppers, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, potatoes, collards, carrots, herbs, flowers, and much more.
We strive to deliver produce on Wednesday mornings between 8 and noon. Produce will be delivered in compostable or recyclable bags. You always have the opportunity to email ahead of time if you will be away for a week to donate your share to our foodbank partner.
What is a Farm Share Program?
A farm share program, sometimes referred to as Community Supported Agriculture, is a subscription service where members of the local community can purchase a share of a farm's harvest. In return, the shareholder receives a weekly box of seasonal produce during a given farming season.
What Kind of Produce Can I Expect?
Farm share members can expect a mixture of fresh produce throughout the summer, including lettuces, spinach, arugula, radishes, beets, kohlrabi, peppers, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, potatoes, collards, carrots, herbs, flowers, and much more!
Do farm share programs impact the community?
Yes! In our case, revenue generated from our Denver Farm Share Program subscriptions directly funds our sustainability programming and farm maintenance.
