The aim of O'k CSA is to explore and have fun sharing connections between garden-farming and art education, and the practice of ecological design and thinking.
O'k CSA is focused on creatively and intelligently, designing ways to live wisely and well, and that means not just learning the "HOW-to's", but also what it takes and then the doing of it. The focus of our work and passion is teaching, learning, experiencing, making art, community garden-farming and ecological education.
Spring Open House & O'k CSA Cooperative 2015 Summer Share

O'k CSA believes that food is art and art is food.
In 2005, our idea of "sharing" what we grow began in the winter months by sharing artwork, with
a series of drawings, paintings and an annual "Year of..." calendar, featuring a Mid-Western version of the Chinese New Year calendar.
It's now 10 years later and our unique Traverse City based, urban CSA continues to share local and regional Michigan artworks, alongside of good, healthy, pesticide & chemical-free produce. Each of our gardens are designed with permanent growing beds, and reflect a beautiful nature inspired, organizational structure following permaculture design practices.
As the summer season approaches, with just a few shifts and twists and turns, the O'k CSA Studio and garden-farm sites are gearing up for another great season, and we invite you to join this great, little, local community gathering of folks who care about the food they eat and act on the urge to be supportive of the arts!
SIGN-UP for a Summer Season of great company, good food and art. Check out info on our website where you can sign up online here:
