Top 6 Reasons to Sign up for Newark’s Youth Farm Stand Membership?
It’s a GREAT deal! You get 12 deliveries of produce for about $16 per bag for a personal share, or about $29 for a family share. At a conventional farmers market, this could cost over $35 for a personal share and $60 for a family share.
You’re supporting Newark-grown produce! The farms where we grow the produce are in your neighborhood- on Hawthorne Avenue and Court Street. It’s what’s called a CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture.
You’re supporting Newark Youth Leadership Project, a job-training and leadership development program for Newark high school students.
You’re supporting our Clean & Green Team! The produce on our farms is planted, maintained, and harvested by a team of job training program participants from the Newark community.
For your health! All of our produce is grown using organic methods without pesticides, so it’s really fresh and very good for you.
To learn how to cook healthy foods! We provide nutrition workshops, recipes, and cooking demos to help you turn your fruits and veggies into delicious meals!
