Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is about sharing – sharing the food we produce, the risks we take, and the community we create. CSA is a unique option for people seeking fresh, local and seasonal produce for their table. By investing in our CSA you are also investing in the sustainability of farming, food, the local community, and our programs here at Red Wiggler.
We have run a successful CSA in Montgomery County MD since 1996 and are the longest continuously running CSA in the county. Our CSA has grown gradually from 12 “shares” in 1996 to 120 “shares” in 2011. Many members return year after year, while some find that CSA is not for them at this time. Our happiest customers live nearby (within 15 miles) or join up with neighbors who rotate pick ups. Our average CSA member lived 11 miles from the farm in 2006. In general, if you enjoy cooking and being challenged in the kitchen to try new vegetables you will have a good experience. We encourage CSA members to treat their season like they would a continuing education experience. Try new things in the kitchen, ask the growers how we prepare kohlrabi or hakurei turnips. CSA members utilizing the “pick your own” flower and herb garden on a regular basis also get the most out of the experience.
Our CSA is the backbone of our mission and core values. We create meaningful employment for adults with developmental disabilities. This is why we were formed and it is at the core of everything we do. The jobs created by the CSA enable our activities at Red Wiggler to thrive. Additionally, 25% of the CSA consists of low income households. Please take a moment to look over our entire web site. Our vision is to create fertile ground to nourish a healthy and inclusive community. At this time we are actively seeking to ensure that low-income adults with developmental disabilities are included in our CSA program. The CSA is integral to our mission and our core values are imbedded in our CSA program.
