CSA

2016 CSA Program is full. If you are interested in being on our waiting list, please email us at uwsproutgarden@uwstout.edu.

What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between you, a UW-Stout community member, and UW-Sprout. The CSA members pay for a season’s worth of produce and UW-Sprout delivers shares of fresh, local and seasonal produce each week.

Why Participate in UW-Sprout’s CSA?

We offer an easy way to connect the campus socially, economically and environmentally. With our first year under our belts, we are confident of the garden’s growing capability to thrive and produce amazing local produce grown without any chemicals. We hope you would consider embarking on the growing journey with us as we continue on into our 2nd year!

CSA Shares

  • 1/4 Bushel every week: Feeds about 1-2 people (only available to students)
  • 1/2 Bushel every week: Feeds about 2-4 people

In the event of extreme weather, crops may be affected and shares may look a little scarce until crops recover. When you join a CSA, you take a risk with the farmer. We will be in open communication with you in event of drought or flooding, and will also be open to comments, questions, or concerns about your CSA shares.
