What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture is a fantastic way for people who care about local food, sustainable agriculture and revitalizing the local economy to get directly involved in making it a reality. CSA members support the farms by buying seasonal “shares” that provide them with vegetables and other farm products. Members receive boxes of farm fresh goodies every week during the growing season. City Commons is a cooperative urban CSA; the produce you receive is all grown in Detroit at five market gardens located throughout the city. The food you receive each week has been grown using sustainable methods, meaning that we do not use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.
