Applications are due May 18, 2019.

A Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) or Veggie Share program is a seasonal subscription for vegetables. Each summer, we typically have 25 shares available. The Veggie Share program lasts 12 weeks through June, July, and August, and participants pick up their bounty every Thursday, anytime between 4-6:30pm, at the Boner Fitness and Learning Center.

Our shares are designed for an individual who eats a lot of vegetables or a couple/family that cooks regularly. Part of our mission is to educate about local, sustainable food, and offering an introductory, short-season Veggie Share allows individuals and families to join at a lower price point and time commitment. In addition to a convenient share size, including 8-12 different items each week, we also offer a wide diversity of vegetables for those who want to sample much of what grows in central Indiana.

Veggie Share applications come out in early Spring and we advise interested parties to sign up immediately as shares tend to run out.

A sample share from last year’s program included:

  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Leeks
  • Sweet Peppers
  • Kale
  • Eggplant
  • Husk Cherries
  • Red, Yellow and White Onions
  • Garlic
