Garden of Eve Video

Usually at this time, Chris or Eve come into the city to do the Farmer Meet N Greet. Last year Chris spoke at Roast & Co.; the year before, Eve spoke at Ateaz. Good times!

Alas, since we cannot host them this year, here is a video on YouTube about the farm. It is from 2013, and gives fascinating info about how they got started.

Check out other videos on YouTube about Garden of Eve Farm.
And, the market on the farm is now open. So if you go out that way, stop in.

Sign up for the Summer/Fall CSA in Briarwood.

Briarwood friends and neighbors: Please join us for our second year in Briarwood and pick up shares from Garden of Eve Organic Farm: Vegetables, Fruit, Eggs, Flowers, Cheese, Meat, Beer, Bread. Information and signups at 🌱

COVID-19 INFO: Many people are joining CSAs at this time because they want more options: far fewer people handle your food versus supermarkets; it is a dependable stream for food in a fragile food chain; farm food is healthy and builds the immune system. [See message here.]
We are adapting to the current crisis. Our shares are pre-packaged at the farm in bags with members names on them--grab and go style. On site we wear masks and gloves, have sanitizer, and observe social distancing. Our surplus goes to those in need during this crisis.
Our volunteer requirement is being relaxed/suspended for the duration; we are looking for other ways for members to participate.

If you are a returning member from last year, we will be so happy to see you again. Why not check in or contact us with suggestions, tips, or questions. We could use your help. 💓
If you are considering joining for the first time, we are here to answer questions and give advice on how to make your membership work. 👍

The 2020 season will begin in June. You can sign up for weekly pickups or, as many people do, for every other week. Why not go in with a partner/friend to make it more fun and so you can share/exchange items. The farm offers extended payment plans and the CSA has financial support in subsidized shares and a revolving loan program to attract a wider membership. If you are interested and think cost is an issue because you are impacted by the economy, contact us, please.

The Briarwood CSA is in partnership with the Kew Gardens CSA and we are members of the Just Food CSA Network.

Winter CSA?

Members: Do you want a Winter CSA in Briarwood?

The farm would be Garden of Eve.
Pickups would be once a month, starting in December and going through May. Six Pickups.
We would probably use the same site or one very close by.
Pickup times may be short---one hour perhaps. Items would be bagged.
The webstore will run in Winter.

Let's start thinking and talking about this.
