The Trellis Center CSA
The Trellis Center operates a one-acre production vegetable and herb gardening program that is operated by adults who have autism and other disabilities. Founded in 2014 by a group of four young men with disabilities and their families.
Our produce and fresh cut flowers are available at local farmers markets, area restaurants and through our seasonal community supported agriculture program which provides weekly deliveries of our fresh, chemical-free produce to local customers in the Kittitas Valley. The farm is always busy with potting seedlings, mixing soil, watering, transplanting, harvesting, and marketing. In the process, our “Growers” learn not only hands-on skills in growing and preparing food, but also develop their executive function skills, problem-solving abilities, and self-advocacy tools, while gaining confidence as productive members of their community.
Trellis is also committed to cultivating a sustainable future. To us, that means practicing growing methods that are good for the earth and good for our customers while creating meaningful opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
