Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes, either legally or spiritually, the community's farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production.

The Boulder JCC is a pick-up site for a CSA with our local partner Red Wagon Organic Farm. We started this program through the Tuv Ha’Aretz initiative started by the national Jewish environmental organization Hazon. A CSA season in Boulder runs from May through October, about 23 weeks.

Tuv Ha’Aretz means “good for the earth” and “good from the earth” in Hebrew. When you join a CSA, you receive a share of local, fresh, organic vegetables every week of the growing season. You are part of a community where you will know where your food comes from, foster relationships with the people who grow your food, and deepen your connection with others who care about food issues.

Registration is open for Tuv Ha'Aretz, Boulder's Jewish CSA.  Reduce your carbon footprint and overall impact on the environment by joining Tuv Ha'Aretz!  Our partner, Red Wagon Farm will provide 22 weeks of delicious, wholesome veggies from May 24th through October 20th. You can pick up 4-7 pm on Tuesdays at Congregation Nevei Kodesh or on Thursdays at the Boulder JCC.  Options include: Regular Veggie Share $942.70, Biweekly Veggie Share $471.35, Large Veggie Share $1,347.50. You can also sign up for fruit, coffee, or mushroom shares. Red Wagon Farm uses their own veggie waste as well as other local organic waste material to make compost to add back into their soil, and they minimize their off-farm inputs. When you purchase a share (or even if you don't purchase a share!) you can give Tzedakah to various funds at Red Wagon: Sharing the Harvest, Farm Worker Support, and Red Wagon Supporter. To join, go to Red Wagon Farms. For more information, please contact csa@redwagonorganicfarm.com

Red Wagon Farm is run by Wyatt Barnes and Amy Tisdale. They have been farming together since 2004 with two farm locations in Boulder County: one in east Boulder on Valmont Road and the other just north of Boulder near Niwot. They sell their vegetables at the Boulder Farmers’ Market, to CSA members, and to local restaurants. There are several pick up locations for Red Wagon Farms and different share sizes depending on the size of your household. Learn more about the Red Wagon CSA
