What is the CSA?
The Flagstaff Garden Starts CSA is a collaborative effort between Flagstaff Foodlink and Flagstaff Native Plant and Seed. We strive to provide high-quality, responsibly grown vegetable, herb, and edible flower starts to the Flagstaff community, while educating and bringing together backyard growers. We’d like the CSA to be an opportunity for gardeners to network, share ideas, and ultimately learn from one another. Members of this CSA will be taking local food production into their own hands, while procuring part of their food security.
How Does it Work?
Members pick up shares from April to June at the Native Plant and Seed nursery in Flagstaff. You can arrange to have someone else pick up your share if you are out of town. Any shares left at the distribution sites will be donated to local garden projects unless prior arrangements are made before the pick-up day.
What’s in a Share?
Shares include six-packs of seasonally appropriate vegetables, herbs, and edible flower starts. In the beginning of the season, participants will receive cold-tolerant plants, such as cole crops (broccoli, cabbage, kale, etc.), lettuce, and onions. As the season progresses and the weather warms, the share will shift to crops like tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, etc. Seeds for crops best sown into the ground and onion bulbs will also be provided.
