At Riverbend Gardens we start off our season when everyone else is still huddled up in sweaters and snow boots. We do crazy things like snow plow the fields to get a start on our crops, and we get bedding flowers… out of bed (!) and ready for you in the spring.
We keep growing and going to markets through to Thanksgiving, some all year long, but August marks that time of year when we hit the top of the mountain and enjoy the view!
About the CSA:
We partner with awesome local businesses who share our values and care about building Edmonton’s food economy.
These partners act as pick-up locations for your CSA bounty. Each Thursday you get to visit our friends closest to you and pick up the goods. The bonus here is you get an excuse to drop in on your local baker, butcher, deli, or cooking shop and fully complement your Riverbend Gardens veggies.
This model builds community. It grows incredible relationships and bolsters a network of food-loving people that want to improve how we think about food. This alleviates distribution pressures and allows us to stay in the fields, where farmers perform best.
