Farm to Families CSA
Conscious Harvest's Farm to Families CSA program connects local families with local farmers. Since 2013, the Farm to Families CSA program has been working with Mountain Harvest Farm to provide families with new and accessible ways to participate in their local food economies while providing small scale farms with increased revenue. Initially funded by the Appalachian Foodshed Project, this program has grown significantly over the years and will reach fifteen families in 2018.
Each program participant will purchase a Farm to Families CSA share through Conscious Harvest Cooperative at a prorated price based off a sliding income scale. Family Shareholders then will pick up a box of fresh vegetables every other week at the Shack Neighborhood House throughout the growing season, attend farm events, and support their local food market.
