Garden

In 2018, Green Gal's Garden was a small market garden and community supported agriculture (CSA) program in the Santa Cruz mountains of California with a mission to support a local, sustainable, and resilient food economy in which people can more easily make healthy food choices that reflect their values. The Garden is seeking a new home in Nevada for the 2019 season. Stay tuned!


What's a market garden?

A market garden is a garden that produces vegetables and fruits for sale to the community. In other words, it's a mini-farm that uses human-scale equipment and tools to grow a lot of food in a small space. Green Gal's Garden is hand-cultivated, meaning that very few (if any) machines are used for tilling, harvesting, or other gardening tasks.

What is Community Supported Agriculture?

Green Gal's Garden's first season of production was on about 500 square feet. Produce and flowers were sold through direct sales coordinated online and a CSA program, which is a regularly scheduled (weekly or biweekly) subscription for a "share" or set amount of food that the customer signs up in advance to receive for a certain number of weeks. In many CSA programs, the customer pays up front for the entire season as a way to help finance the farm or garden business costs. You can learn more about the CSA model at https://www.localharvest.org/csa/.
