Because we are a small farm, we pause delivery of your CSA share when we put on our farm-to-table dinners (between one and three per year). As a benefit of your CSA membership, you receive 50% off the ticket price on up to (2) tickets to a dinner at Forested! These dinners feature forest garden cuisine prepared by top chefs. Read a National Geographic article about a Forested dinner here.
WHEN: Every other Friday afternoon between 3 and 6pm

$500 paid before March 15, $600 before April 15.
Note: because we’re in beta with this CSA, we’ll prorate your share price back to you if we can’t fill your box for any of the pickups.
WHY A FOREST GARDEN CSA? When you visit Forested, you find a healthy ecosystem with a high diversity of plants and wildlife. We believe that our produce is some of the most nutritious available, because our growing methods resemble those of our pre-industrial ancestors. We grow without using any synthetic pesticides or fertilizer. Our selection includes foods you can’t buy anywhere else, nutrition you can’t get anywhere else, and incredible new flavors.
