Community Supported Agriculture SPRING progam Sign-Ups

New Season Begins March 15

Getting farm fresh produce, in season, from local fields is where we begin to make a difference. The Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens in Goleta, is now offering local residents a chance to start making a difference by signing up for membership in its Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program which begins a new season on March 15. Two downtown locations for pick-up have been added as well: Wheelhouse, 528 Anacapa St. and Kunin Winery, 28 Anacapa St. from 4-6 p.m Thursdays.

You can register/sign up for a weekly allotment of fresh produce which benefits you and the farm. Your membership in CSA is an investment in the future of Fairview Gardens and supports the vision of a brighter future for everyone when local farm fresh food trumps low cost, low nutrition and unsustainable food trucked across country or the world. CSA members get 10% off all farm stand and Farmer’s Market purchases as well as discounts on the Urban Homesteading Series of classes.

Fairview Gardens, since 1895, is the oldest organic farm still in production in California. Self-guided tours of the farm are available every day and the farm stand is also open now.
