Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a program that allows people to support local farms by purchasing a share of the farm’s summer produce. Purchasing shares usually occurs early in the growing season, which allows the farmer to have a reliable source of income when their expenses are the highest. Farming can be risky, and CSA members not only receive the benefits of the produce, but they also assume some of the risk of farming, increasing the security of farming for small farmers.
Boulder Tuv Ha’Aretz, a Hazon Community-Supported Agriculture program, is a partnership of Congregation Aish Kodesh, Congregation Bonai Shalom, Nevei Kodesh, Adventure Rabbi: Synagogue Without Walls, Pardes Levavot, and Congregation Har Hashem with Red Wagon Organic Farm.
Boulder Tuv Ha’Aretz puts the purchasing power of the Boulder Jewish community behind local, sustainable, organic agriculture.
Boulder Tuv Ha’Aretz members get a summer of fresh, local, organic produce, as well as a wealth of Jewish programming around food and food issues.
Last year we had 75 members supporting a total of 65 shares. This year we are hoping to expand.
The cost of a regular share is $517 for 22 weeks or $23.50/week.
