2021 O’k CSA Cooperative accepting new members

Our Traverse City based CSA Cooperative grows fresh, organic vegetables, medicinal herbs and flowers on neighborhood gardens and offers both a Spring and Summer share. In addition to good, nutritious garden fresh produce we also include lovely flower bouquets and artwork and garden crafts.

We are doing everything we can to contribute to our community and make sure you can get good fresh, organic food this growing season. In addition to our regular Spring and Summer share offerings, we will begin sharing seeds in April and seedlings in May at our Second Street location. We want to encourage people to grow their own food and contribute to our neighborhood garden-farming and food-shed efforts to feed the people nutritious, healthy organic food.

We had a tough year last year adjusting to the pandemic constraints and missed our in-person connections and potlucks, but we persevered and shared our garden goods throughout the season. We look forward to doing the same this year, following careful protocols to keep our families and garden-farmers healthy and safe. We are also taking into consideration that the times continue to be tough economically, and so offering our shares at a discount from last year and well below average cost of organically grown vegetables and food.

We invite you to join our wonderful Traverse City O’k CSA Cooperative. Become a 2021 share member! Online registration and payment is easy.
