CSA Sign Up NOW Available!!

The time has arrived to sign up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) with New Roots farmers! 


This is a rare opportunity to connect with New Roots farmers, support a family, and learn from those that grow our food, about vegetable varieties, culture, cooking, etc. By participating as a CSA friend you will receive fresh organic seasonal vegetables every week for 18 weeks from May to October. In New Roots for Refugees, our ultimate goal is to transition farmers to self-sufficiency so that they can graduate from our training farm and continue their farm business on their own land. This is why, when you buy a CSA with New Roots for Refugees, you’re paired with one farmer instead of getting produce aggregated from all 16 farmers. We want every farmer to experience the process of a CSA and work on developing individual relationships. Every interaction between you and your farmer is a learning opportunity- we hope you’ll embrace that part of your experience as a New Roots CSA Friend.

We are now looking for businesses, organizations, offices, gyms, communal spaces, etc. to partner with us for CSA delieveries, offering our farmers connections that they can foster and keep for many seasons to come!

We offer market pickups and deliveries, which you can read more about on the CSA page! Pricing and examples of seasonal crops are also featured there. If you have any questions about CSA or want to sign up to be a delivery site contact Meredith Walrafen at mwalrafen@catholiccharitiesks.org or 913-909-1027.
