Schoolyard Farms is a nonprofit that builds healthy communities by teaching kids how to grow nutritious food that goes from their schoolyard to their plate. We do this by building mini-production farms on underused schoolyards that serve as outdoor classrooms and as a source of fresh produce for our community. Our farms are located at Candy Lane Elementary and New Urban High School, both in Milwaukie. We grow over 40 types of vegetables on the schoolyard using sustainable and ecological growing methods. By becoming a member of our CSA you are supporting the core values and programs of our non-profit farm and helping to change the way we think about, purchase and eat food. Schoolyard Farms’ CSA is also unique because our shares are sized individually, allowing you to design the ideal share for you or your family. One share is enough for one person who eats a moderate amount of vegetables in a week (about four bunches of vegetables). If you eat a lot of vegetables, we recommend two shares per person. For a family, we recommend three-four shares, etc. For more information, please visit our web site, www.schoolyardfarms.org.
Community is hugely important to us at Schoolyard Farms and we offer many ways to get involved with our farms, including: Farm-based Summer Camp for 1st-6th graders, Volunteer Days, Open House on the Farm in June, A Farm Dinner in October.
