Subsidized CSA Shares Now Available

Thanks to a generous contribution from the Brighter Days Collective, Radix Farm is now offering subsidized half-price shares to qualifying low-income households.  We’re excited to extend the opportunity for folks to join who might not normally join a CSA and find it difficult to afford a full-price share.   Healthy, fresh, and local food for all is such a vital part of the movement for food justice and sustainability.  Thanks Brighter Days!!

Subsidized CSA shares are the same size as full-price shares and include all the same benefits as full-price membership; there will be no distinction once you become a member of the Farm.  Subsidized memberships are available at our Regular CSA pick up and at the Market CSA pick-ups (Market CSA at the $600 level ONLY).  There are a limited number of subsidized shares available, and they will be filled in the order in which we receive applications.  Please see the CSA Information page for details on the CSA options and instructions on how to join.  If you think you qualify for the low-income share, please check the chart below and then email us at radixfarm(at)gmail.com.

Regular CSA:   Full-price = $675.  Subsidized shares at half-price = $337
Market CSA:
 Full-price = $600.  Subsidized shares at half-price = $300, (you will receive $630 in your farm debit account).

Anyone who qualifies for government assistance (WIC, EBT, or disability) is welcome to apply for a subsidized CSA share.  You are also eligible for a subsidized share if your total household income is equal to or below the amount indicated in the chart below. The definition of household is all the persons living with you with whom you share food.
