Sign up to pick up a box of produce at the farm each week!

Web registrations for Grow Dat’s Farm Share Program are now closed. If you would like to be added to the waiting list for the 2019-2020 season, please email Cassie@growdatyouthfarm.org. Registration for the 2019/2020 season will open this June.

Grow Dat Farm Shares run from November to June.  Your share will consist of a variety of vegetables and herbs sustainably grown on our farm and will change on a weekly basis. One share will generally supply a family of 2-4 for a week.

Each week share members receive a box of produce that will regularly include what we like to call “the base of the box:” 1) a ¼ lb. bag of our signature salad mix, 2) one bunch of kale, 3) one bunch of chard OR collards OR mustards (farmer’s choice based on availability) and 4) fresh herbs. In addition to the weekly “base,” you will receive seasonal herbs and vegetables including basil, beets, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, eggplant, beans, leek, mustards, green onions, hot peppers, potatoes, radishes, sugar snap peas, squash, cherry tomatoes, tat soi, mulberries, ginger, turmeric, turnips, zucchini and more!

Members are responsible for picking up their weekly produce box at our farm site in City Park. If you or a friend can’t pick-up your box for a given week, you have the option of donating that week’s share to Grow Dat youth and their families.  

* SNAP recipients receive a 50% discount off total!
