The Roots & Wings Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program provides boxes of dazzling produce every Wednesday beginning June 21. The amount and variety is comparable to other local CSAs, with offerings as dynamic as the season. This CSA is coordinated by our Youth Leader Program, an initiative that increases job skills for Rockford youth through community-based urban farming, business training and cooking. Visit Angelic Organics farm for CSA options outside the Rockford area.

What’s in a share?
Each week you will receive a bountiful bag filled with seasonal vegetables, flowers & herbs - all of which are grown using organic techniques, then harvested and packed by Rockford youth!
