The Office of Sustainability and Human Resources have partnered with Local Farmer CSA to provide a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program to the WashU community. Staff, faculty, and students on all campuses (and anyone else interested in becoming a CSA member) are invited to sign-up as a CSA member to receive a weekly or bi-weekly crop box filled with locally grown produce, meat, cheeses, and/or other artisan goods.

Community Supported Agriculture programs provide a convenient and affordable way for community members to access fresh, healthy and seasonal food while supporting and connecting with local farmers.

Crop Box Options

Participants purchase a farm share when signing-up, and in return, receive a weekly or bi-weekly box of locally grown items based on the type of Crop Box selected.

Options include:

  • Student Box – $20 per box. This box is exclusively for students!
  • Farm Share Box – $29.99 per box.
  • Build Your Own Box – $40+ per box.
    This box is fully customizable. All you have to do is spend a minimum of $40. You can add and drop items each week using the online farmers market.

You can cancel or put your account on hold at any time. New participants will be charged a one-time $15 registration fee.
