How does it work?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Members invest in the success of local farms while ensuring your access to fresh, sustainably grown food. You pay for your share up front, which means we have enough funds to pay for farm supplies and staffing to grow the amazing food you’ll be enjoying!

What’s included in my share?

Each week you’ll take home a box of fresh seasonal vegetables, fruit and herbs, as well as a small bouquet of seasonal flowers. Everything you’ll receive in your box is sustainably grown right here on the GRuB Farm. You’ll also receive an e-newsletter covering what’s in your box, farm happenings, recipes, GRuB updates, and special youth writings.

Is CSA right for me?

Summer CSA

Shares cost $550 for 16 weeks (late June to early October). Typical fall shares include 10-15 items a week, such as summer squash, kale, salad mix, broccoli, cabbage, leeks, onions, carrots, beets, berries, beans, peas, and tomatoes. A portion of the cost goes to subsidize the produce that we send home with youth in our GRuB School program each week. These same youth tend the farm, harvest for the CSA, and are responsible for the high quality of your boxes.Your support enables low-income and disengaged youth to bring the fruits of their labor home. This reduces strain on the family budget and often introduces healthier food into the family diet.

Fall CSA

Shares cost $210 for 7 weeks (early October to late November). Typical fall shares include 10-15 items a week, such as winter squash, kale, salad mix, broccoli, cabbage, leeks, onions, carrots, beets, and tomatoes.

How do I sign up?

There are two options for those who are ready to sign-up for our Summer CSA:

Option 1
Make your $550 full payment now.
Full payments received by March 31, 2015 will receive an Earlybird bonus – your choice of a GRuB t-shirt or cookbook!

Option 2
Make a $100 deposit online now and then set up a payment plan with us for the remainder of the $550.
PLEASE NOTE: CSAs must be paid for in full before the first week of the season. For those unable to complete their payment plan, we are not able to offer refunds as CSAs are designed to help farms offset expenses necessary to start production prior to the growing season. Instead, we will shift your payments to a fully tax-deductible donation and send you a receipt for your taxes. 

If you are unable to register or pay online for any reason, please contact us at 360-753-5522 or

“What’s better than a “2 for 1?” Going to GRUB to pick up my weekly CSA produce instead of going to the grocery store to get it! As a bonus I get a beautiful freshly cut bouquet of flowers each week too! When you sign up for a GRUB CSA you are not only getting absolutely wonderful fresh produce, you are participating in the opportunities it gives to so many youth who work there. I can’t wait to go in the cooler, pick up my box and see what’s inside. I think about what it took to grow such a variety of items and what amazing things our kids and volunteers are learning from working on the farm. I am so proud to share my support of GRUB with anyone I know or meet, even the checkers at the grocery store. It’s always a great to go back to GRuB, where my son was in the first group of students invited to participate. Count me in every year! ”

“After volunteering a few times at GRuB, I was intrigued by their CSA program. How did they manage to pull a group of high school kids together to grow food in addition to all the other things they were learning? So I signed up for a fall share, knowing that at least my CSA membership was supporting a good cause, regardless of what my veggies might look like. But we were very happy with all the fresh yummy produce in our box each week–leeks, greens of all kinds, brussel sprouts, potatoes, cucumbers, carrots, kiwis, raspberries–enough to share with another family. And, as a volunteer, it was very cool to see the kids working together, teaching me what to do, having a good time with each other but learning and growing, too. I give the GRuB CSA program two thumbs up!”
