Bright Spot Farm CSA Program
What is Community Supported Agriculture?
A CSA is a farm membership in which members share in the bounty (and risk) of the farm. When we have a great season, you have a great season!
Members support the farm by paying for their share upfront at the beginning of the season. In return, each week they get to make their share from a selection of seasonal vegetables harvested by the farmers!
Each week's share contains a variety of seasonal veggies grown on the farm.
Why become a member of Bright Spot's CSA?
Bright Spot Farms is a program of the West End Neighborhood House. We provide agricultural training to young adults 14-18 yrs. old at our 3-acre farm on the Herman Holloway Campus in New Castle, DE.
We believe in the power of farming to transform people through building confidence and fostering leadership. Our objective is to heal and empower the young people in our program by rooting our farming in an ethic of community service.
Your support as a member of our CSA will allow us to put more time and resources into our youth leadership programs. As a member of our "farmily" you will also be invited to our annual harvest potluck, which is a great opportunity to meet the Bright Spot Farm's staff. And you will always be welcome to come visit the farm and see where and how your food is grown!
HOW DOES IT WORK? Every week farm members receive a pre-packed box of seasonal vegetables at their pick-up location or delivered. We currently offer the following options for receiving your weekly share:
In addition, farm members receive a weekly e-mail letting them know what will be in their share, updates from the farm, and a suggested recipe that uses vegetables from their share!
Bright Spot Farm is looking forward to our 2023 Season. This year's produce boxes will have a different variety of items. We will be focusing on providing our members with items they are familiar with, and still throw in an occasional new item.
