A unique, and truly-urban CSA located in Boulder, Colorado. Community Roots offers a 22 week CSA season complete with veggies, herbs, flowers, and fruits....Shares still available for 2010!!!
Community Roots is a unique farm comprised of a collection of small urban gardens. On less than 1/2 acre, Community Roots practices intensive growing techniques using raised beds and relay cropping to maximize yields. In 2010, Community Roots will be operating a 35 member co-operative CSA! Shares are still available.
Community Roots is an innovative Neighborhood Supported Agriculture model in Boulder, Colorado, bringing local food production and distribution into urban settings. This 3 ½ year old urban farming project was created by farmer Kipp Nash, who has successfully converted 13 front and back yards, and church lawns into vegetable gardens for neighbors and CSA shareholders, with surplus for the Boulder Farmer’s Market and food for families in need - while creating increased community connections among neighbors at the same time.
People can participate in Community Roots in a variety of ways including: offering your yard or joining the CSA. There are also opportunities to support us, sponsor families who receive free food from the CSA, and make a fruit tree available to the CSA for harvest.
Kipp has created an Apprenticeship Program to train urban farmers in growing food in their front or back yard. For people wanting to learn the NSA model for your town or city, Kipp gives workshops and keynote talks on how food can be brought back into urban settings.
Please contact us if you would like information about any of the above programs or to offer support. Coming soon … our Community Roots Institute!
