Urban Roots CSA program

Urban Roots, a local East Side youth urban gardening program, is currently accepting memberships for its CSA program. The Urban Roots CSA share is designed for people who enjoy local, organically grown produce and would like to support youth. The share is a 5/9 bushel share, best designed for an individual, couple, or a family that still enjoys shopping at other markets. The youth grow over 50 varieties of vegetables and herbs, and occasional flowers, for the CSA members during the growing season. Each box will contain at least six to eight different types of produce with the quantity increasing in size as the season becomes more bountiful. Types of produce in the share may include: lettuce, kale, beets, carrots, beans, tomatoes, garlic, onions, radishes, eggplant, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers, apples, unique salad greens and more. Herbs include: basil, sage, thyme, parsley and more. For more information, prices and to signup, go to urbanrootsmn.org/csa.
