Organic Baskets

 

Basket signup for 2017 is now closed.
Check back in February 2018 for next year’s baskets.

We grow certified organic vegetables for our baskets, markets and meals-on-wheels service, right on our farm in Senneville. Signing up for baskets is a great way to receive a variety of fresh, seasonal produce, support local farms and sustainable practices, and be part of a vibrant community!


In the basket

The veggies in our basket are certified organic and come almost exclusively from our farm in Senneville. The variety changes throughout the season, and baskets are always overflowing with freshness and diversity of produce. From time to time, we complement the basket with organic produce and fruit from other local farms in order to increase the variety.

This year, we have transitioned towards a mini market model. This allows farm members to choose from an array of seasonal vegetables that change as the season progresses. Here are a few examples of weekly baskets throughout the season.

What’s a CSA share?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is based on the mutually beneficial relationship between you and your farmer. By paying for your weekly share of the harvest at the beginning of the season, farmers can purchase seed, materials and provide a fair wage for their employees. In return, farmers commit to growing a diversity of certified organic vegetables for farm members!

Learn more about the CSA model or find other farms that feed your neighbourhood at Equiterre.

Our solidarity model

To increase accessibility to our CSA over different income brackets, we created a solidarity model. Farm members pay a little extra for their share and this surplus goes towards subsidized CSA shares for low-income individuals and families, specialized baskets for seniors, reduced market prices in under-served communities and increased organic produce for our meal-on-wheels program.

A tax receipt will be made out for farm members registered for the Solidarity Baskets.

    Hello,

    Very excited for the first basket!

    It think I saw on Facebook they start Thursday June 16th?

    If we signed up for a Tuesday pick-up, do we still come on Thursday the 16th OR do we start on the 21st?
