About the CSA
Emerson Montessori Foundation launched a community-supported agriculture (CSA) program in spring 2020.
Members of the program pay for a weekly share of organic, seasonal vegetables grown at Emerson Farm, the 1-acre farm on the northwest corner of the Emerson Elementary campus.
Every dollar from every member directly supports farm production, allowing the foundation's small team to seed, plant, harvest, and distribute crops all year round and restore the area's natural beauty and biodiversity.
Join the CSA
The foundation is expanding the CSA to 40 members in March 2021! Also new next year: We are offering weekly front porch delivery!The application for membership will be available here, on Facebook, and through school communications in February. While we wish we could share our produce with everyone, we prioritize applicants who live near and have a direct connection to Emerson (teachers, parents, neighbors).

"My first attempt at cooking okra and my kids loved it...My 9-year-old says they taste like French fries! We’re having a lot of fun experimenting with our weekly goodie bag!
