Despite the challenges we face in these times, we are fortunate to be able to continue our work in bridging our farmers with you through Community Shared Agriculture.
As we forego choice, everyone receives a diversity of produce and the farmers are able to cultivate edible gardens instead of fuel and feed monocrops. Through our program Lingap Maralita, we are able to share food with the most food insecure in our society during this pandemic, the urban poor. Parents are given the same opportunity that we have to provide their children with fresh and nutritious organic produce. Humble community kitchens and container gardens become critical sites of empowerment.
As CSA subscriber, you can choose from the following farm shares:
A Gulay Pambahay is a set of 9-12 kinds of produce, usually good for a family of 4-5.
A Small Tampipi holdsabout 6-8 varieties, good for a family of 2-3, or 1 if you eat primarily vegetables.
You may also opt to add a solidarity share to help us provide food to 500 families every week in a community in Payatas and Montalban.
Through CSA and solidarity, we truly believe that we can make a difference and change the world with food.
Reminder: To make it to our weekly Thursday delivery, your payment must be processed by 6PM the Monday before. Seewhat's available this week on ourGulay Board. Also check out our Delivery Guide&FAQs.All packs will be delivered in tampipi which are shared by all CSA members. Collections are weekly upon delivery of your farmshare, to be cycled for sanitation and reuse.
What MakesOur Produce Stand Out
We could tell you about our partnership with small holder farmers, their organic practice and the larger food system that the produce represents or you could taste it. The difference depends on what you're used to and what you've been exposed to. 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.
