Young Urban Farmers: Around the Watering Can

Young Urban Farmers Community Shared Agriculture (YUF CSA) gave a shout out to guerrilla gardening in their newsletter this week, including some historical info on how it all got started. You can read the newsletter here.

Young Urban Farmers Community Shared Agriculture (YUF CSA) is a non-profit organization that farms land donated by Toronto homeowners. In exchange for providing supplies and water, and (depending on the size of your garden) a fee to participate, the homeowner gets a beautiful vegetable garden - no gardening required - and can keep a portion of the crops. The rest is collected and delivered weekly to local households who have signed up to become shareholders. They invest a flat fee in order to receive fresh veggies all season long.
