We are a membership based farm because of our unique business model. We use the annual membership dues collected towards supporting our farm and providing a hands-on agricultural experience in our community. Becoming a Farm Partner helps our farm continue offering sustainable, nutritious food to the community. Thanks to the dues collected from our members we are able to conduct certain classes, host events and field trips as well as contribute food directly to the community at no cost.
The Eden Gardens Farm model is a little different, we offer our neighbors the opportunity to become "Farm Partners" with their local farmer in helping grow the best, most nutritional produce possible that is chemical free. You are not required to be a Farm Partner to participate in our CSA but partnership does have its benefits. Our Farm Partners get 10% off the CSA share rate as well as participate in private events like UPICK days where we let you pick a free share quarterly
Seeds are the core of our success at the farm. We buy seeds from Johnny's Select and Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. Every season we purchase fresh seed stock for planting. For just $10/month, a Seed Partner can help us purchase seeds and supplies for the gardens.
Annual Partners contribute toward the operational costs of the farm. We offer two different levels.
Family Partnership and Senior Partnership for those 65+ years.
Legacy Partners are those that can help us towards major projects and farm expansion. This level is $1000 per year with a two year commitment.
