CSA Share Information

Registration is now open for 2017 CSA shares!

Welcome to Crown Point Ecology Center Community Supported Agriculture program! Once again, we are planning for twenty (20) weeks of CSA distribution, if the weather allows. We anticipate our first distribution day to be the end of May, but we will confirm with all our members the week before our first scheduled CSA distribution. It will go until the last week of September. Keep in mind, there may be fewer items during the first part of summer and more items towards the end of the growing season.
