CSA Member Farmer

Please check back – registration for the Summer CSA Member Farmer program will begin in April

Note: We’ve revised our schedule to better suit both the vegetables and Ryerson scheduling. Please take note! 

A weekly CSA basket doesn’t satisfy your urge to grow? In addition to receiving a CSA basket each week, Member Farmers join a weekly shift at the farm. Gain valuable knowledge and skills training from Ryerson Urban Farm staff as you engage hands-on with growing and harvesting a full range of market garden produce to support the farm operations. In addition to the pleasure of challenging physical activity in a natural setting, you will have the satisfaction of contributing to growing the produce you eat, and will be able to apply this knowledge to growing food using ecological means on your own home-scale.

Shifts start with an observational field walk led by Ryerson Urban Farm staff, and participants will be briefed on proper techniques for all tasks, from tool usage demos to pruning tomatoes to bunching radishes.

Space is limited. Preference goes to current Ecological Market Garden Training participants.
