Grown in Detroit fruit, vegetables, flowers, and herbs are grown in urban gardens and farms throughout Detroit, Hamtramck, and Highland Park. Growers produce food in healthy soil without harmful chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers or genetically modified products. All Garden Resource Program members are welcome to participate. Growers receive 100% of the profits from produce sold.
GROWN IN DETROIT CSA PROGRAM
For decades, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs have supported small-scale farmers and strengthened local food systems by encouraging consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from farmers. Interested consumers purchase a share and in return, receive seasonal produce throughout the specified season.
In 2017 weekly Grown in Detroit CSA shares will be available between June and October and members can sign up for one month at a time! One share will generally supply a family of four with all the seasonal vegetables they can eat for a week. Members are responsible for picking up their weekly share at the Plum Street Market Garden on Tuesday evenings 5-7 pm.
