Community Supported Agriculture
with Volcano Medicine
Why Become a Part of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)?
A CSA is a form of organised communal gardening, where the community can rely on the experience, knowledge and resources of a garden manager or team, while learning and participating in ways that work for their own time/financial situation. From the garden manager’s perspective, it’s a way to grow food within a supportive community, where your end consumer is already known, and there is no middle-person. You share both the risk and the bonuses of every season with all of the members. For everyone, it’s a chance to connect deeply with the seasons, with your local environment and be a part of the restrictions and challenges that come with that. It’s a chance to learn to prepare and eat new things and diversify your food horizons!
What is Volcano Medicine CSA?
Run by Rebekah Harbour with help from the community, we farm in Kula on Greenleaf Farm. We use organic methods of farming, incorporating biodynamic, permaculture, and co-creative practices. We work with our little eco-system to support the health of the plants, the soil, the creatures that are a part of it, and the people!
The Goals of Volcano Medicine CSA are to:
1. Create a supportive environment for learning sustainable agricultural practices
2. Create sacred space for people and nature to co-create
3. Provide an abundance of healthful fruits, vegetables and herbs for our community
How Does the Volcano Medicine CSA Work?
We currently have an 8 week membership available for the rest of spring, for $280 or, work-exchange.
Pick up is Tuesday afternoons from 5-7pm, in lower Kula (address and details will be given after registration).
Due to Corona Virus precautions, we will pre-pack your fruits vegetables and herbs for you, so you just show up and pick up!
First pick-up date for the spring 8 week series 2021 is march 23rd, and runs through May 11th.
When Can We Help in The Garden? And what is the Work Trade programe?
Work parties are still on hold due to corona virus precautions. However we have opened up our work-trade opportunities, and have a spot available for someone who can commit to 3 hours per week helping out! Get in touch if you think you can make that commitment.
How will I know What To Do With New Vegetables and Fruits I've Never Used Before?
Every week we will email you a little newsletter that will include at least one recipe to make something delicious with one of the less common fruits or vegetables in your harvest share. Where possible we try to include multiple items from the harvest in each recipe! The recipes will be stored on the "recipes and tips" page, accessed through this site, as well as a collection of storage tips to help keep your veggies and fruits fresh and tasty for the longest time.
