New Leaf CSA Winter Season

New Leaf Agriculture Winter 2022 CSA Season


New Leaf Agriculture’s Winter 2022 CSA Season is starting January 3! Sign up for weekly or biweekly CSA deliveries to our Castle Hill Fitness Downtown location, and pick up farm-fresh goodies as you leave! 

New Leaf Agriculture is a farming social enterprise from the Multicultural Refugee Coalition employing refugees at a 20-acre USDA-certified organic farm near Elgin. As a Certified USDA Organic farm, New Leaf doesn’t use any chemical pesticides or fertilizers, instead employing soil conservation practices like cover cropping, composting, and crop rotation. These practices foster biodiversity to produce nutrient-dense vegetables in a thriving ecosystem.

What is a CSA?

‘CSA’ stands for Community Supported Agriculture. These programs are a great way for the local community to support their farmers! CSA shares are paid upfront – this financial commitment provides funding for the New Leaf refugee farmers to prepare beds, buy seeds and transplants, and get the season off to a strong start. Once harvest begins, you’ll then receive weekly shares of the fresh produce you’ve supported.

$300 Full-Sized: 7-9 items, 10 weeks
$250 Individual-Sized: 5-7 items, 10 weeks
