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.

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. The 2020 CSA season is sold out.
