Good Food Community is all about growing a sustainable society that nourishes everyone—you, the farmers, the land and generations to come. The multiple crises of our age serve as an invitation to evolve a new system and culture—one that puts the planet and people first. We believe that the way to achieve this is through Community Shared Agriculture.
What is Community Shared Agriculture?
Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) is an alternative distribution system whereby production is supported by a community through subscriptions to the harvest of a certain farm or group of farmers.
With each farmshare of organic, ethical grown food, our ability to feed ourselves and our loved ones safe and nutritious food is tied intimately to that of the farmers. Our health is their health, our community's food security is their community's food security.
By susbcribing to prepaid, local and seasonal vegetables delivered weekly to your doorstep, our CSA model allows for us to make regular purchase and price commitments with our farmers. Stable demand for their produce at fixed, fair prices shield them from market instability, thus providing sustainable income and support for their organic practices -- all of which guarantee you an equitable share of their harvest year-round!
Your commitment to eat healthy meets our farmers' commitment to grow nutritious food-- and together we grow a sustainable food system. Join us and let's change the world with food!
How Can We Change the World with Food?
The pervasive monoculture and industrial nature of production today are mirrors to our own demand and driven by our trade relationships.
We're constantly learning that, to grow organic produce sustainably, we cannot just change production practices, we must also shift our lifestyles to embrace nature, and the community that grows from working together towards a shared good.
If we can learn to appreciate diversity and what is seasonally available, we can cycle nutrients in the soil, and pay the farmer fairly instead of the lottery the commercial market can be. And with every farmshare subscription, you are able to do just that.
Instead of demanding what the land must produce, you're offered a share in what it provides. This means you don't get to choose your vegetables -- but you do learn to work with them, to trust and tune in to the resilience and diversity of every season. Farming in this way becomes a joint project to nourish each and every one of us -- the farmers, the eaters, and generations to come.
What Makes our Produce Different
Our work through community shared agriculture is more than just selling organic fruits and vegetables.
The sweetness of our carrots and cherry tomatoes, the creaminess of the avocadoes, the floral aroma of our lemons - they are all about how the soil is cared for and nourished by the farmers we work with so that the land will still sustain, despite the numerous crises we face, generations who will come after us.
Many of the items taste more alive than supermarket ones (ie spinach, carrots, beets, korean radish, etc). Often we receive varieties that don't make it through mass-produced marketing channels or long travel (ie cherry tomatoes or saging bulkan). Whether it's the soil care or the shorter food miles or both, we like to believe you can experience collective health and hopefully taste it too.
