The Green Earth CSA

The Green Earth Institute uses the community supported agriculture, or CSA, approach as the primary way we sell the produce we grow at our farm. Through our CSA, community people purchase a "share" of the anticipated harvest and make payment in advance at an agreed price. In exchange, the farmers plant, cultivate, harvest, wash and distribute a bountiful selection of vegetables and herbs. In short, the farmers and members become partners in the production, distribution and consumption of locally grown food.

We lease 49 acres of farm land at the McDonald Farm, owned by The Conservation Foundation, on the south side of Naperville, where we grow over 45 different vegetable and herb crops, all USDA certified organic.

The 2017 season is the 15th year of our very popular CSA program.
