2017-season-coverSign up now for the fall and winter seasons!!

Fall season runs October 13- December 15.
Winter season runs January 12 to March 2, 2017

ECO City Farms offers weekly farm shares (also called CSAs) of locally grown produce through the farm share program. Members sign up and pay for the entire season ahead of time, then pick up their share of produce each week at designated locations.

ABOUT OUR PRODUCE
We grow sustainably using organic, chemical free methods at our two urban farms in Edmonston and Bladensburg, Md.

We are unusual in that we farm during the winter – using passive solar hoophouses, which provide cold weather tolerant greens and vegetables all winter long.

We also purchase a small amount of produce from small sustainable farmers in the area to supplement the CSA.

What Do I Get Each Week? 

The fall / winter share will mostly contain: collards, swiss chard, kale, bok choi, kohlrabi, radishes, arugula, spinach, lettuces, mustard greens, scallions, microgreens, turnips, garlic and apples.

How Does a Farm Share Work? Members sign up and pay for the season ahead of time, and pick up up their share of produce each week. ECO offers two different share sizes that bring weekly vegetables in season.
