We are excited to announce that We Grow Microgreens will be collaborating with Red Fire Farms for a weekly summer CSA. We will be offering a mix of 4-6 organic vegetables from Red Fire Farms; this will be an arrangement of the healthiest crops of lettuce, kale, asparagus, radish, carrots, and more. We Grow Microgreens will be contributing two varieties of sustainably grown microgreens, and two out of the following three items: herb bundles, edible flowers, and tropical tea leaves. Microgreen varieties include pea shoots, sunflower sprouts, broccoli, arugula, cabbage, radish and more. The edible flowers may include calendula, nasturtium, arugula, violas, thyme, and more. The herbs may be varieties of thyme, oregano, sage, mint, parsley, basil and other seasonally available herbs. Medicinally valuable tropical tea leaves with benefits may include guanabana, papaya, klip dagga, and guava; these tea leaves will include instructions on how to best use the leaves. The price of the CSA will be $56 per share for 8 weeks for a total cost of $448. There are four convenient pick-up locations in Cambridge, Newton, Brookline, and Hyde Park. Shares begin Thursday, June 30th.
Purchase at We Grow Microgreen's Summer CSA
We Grow Microgreens, LLC has been working diligently since 2015 to establish itself as an urban farm. Owners Lisa Evans and Tim Smith collaborated with the City of Boston to obtain a piece of land, and the neighborhood of Hyde Park welcomed their farm into its fabric. Through community support and generous grants from the United States Department of Agriculture, the Massachusetts Department of Agriculture, and the city of Boston, owners Tim and Lisa, with the help of local youth, cleared the land, constructed a 4600-square-foot, energy and water-conserving glass greenhouse and two high tunnels, built a landscaped community walking path and filled the farm with raised garden beds. The Farm now grows edible flowers and microgreens, as well as herbs, vegetables and medicinal plants. We sincerely thank you for your support and patience as we continue to grow into a productive farm.
