CSA FAQ’s

What is Community Supported Agriculture or CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a system of farming that brings farmers and community members together as shared stakeholders in the success of local, sustainable food production. Members purchase a share of the harvest which entitles them to a weekly produce box delivered to a convenient pick-up location for the duration of the growing season.

As a member of the Trellis Center CSA, you are:

  • Supporting meaningful opportunities for people with disabilities.
  • Investing in sustainable agriculture and the local economy.
  • Decreasing your carbon footprint by reducing the distance your food travels to your plate.
  • Eating the freshest seasonal produce available.

What comes in each CSA share?

Each CSA share will be full of whatever is being harvested fresh that week from our garden in Ellensburg, WA. Supporting our CSA is a great way to eat local for a better price. We stock each share with about 10% more produce than you could typically buy for the same price at the farmers market.
