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.
Cooperation, Commitment, Passion and Respect. Let's Build a Local Food System for Your Family, Together!
We commit to growing beautiful food for families who commit to a monthly Meat Box or Farm Fresh Egg delivery and garlic.
We are not a grocery store. We are, however, committed to growing what we can in our climate for you in a way that is honourable, sustainable and humane. We are a small team of humans who value real food raised the slow and natural way that remains SOYA AND CORN free. The only way we can keep our prices affordable and grow our product with integrity is to know there is a family waiting to receive what we grow and taking delivery once a month. We raise a small number of poultry and hogs to be able to make you the packages that you want and the sausages that people have come to love, made by artisans that take pride in quality. Let's talk and make a plan for your family!
We have four sizes of monthly Egg Program memberships (12-month commitment) and three sizes of custom Meat Boxes. Choose only the things your family loves to eat.
