Sweet Earth Co. is excited to bring you fresh local flowers and herbs through our CSA!
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a farm-share program that fosters strong bonds between community members and local growers. A flower CSA works the same way as a vegetable CSA. A member typically joins before the growing season starts. Your membership helps us plan our crops and buy seeds and other supplies for the coming season.
In return, members receive a weekly bouquet of loosely arranged flowers, and the option of an herb bunch. At Sweet Earth Co. our field flowers and herbs are grown in our gardens naturally without the use of any synthetic chemicals and nurtured using biodiversity and sustainable practices. Flowers are usually picked the same morning as members get their share so you can expect 5-10 days of fresh, assorted blooms each week.
Our weekly bouquets can go right into your vase at home or use them to create your own floral design to brighten up your home or office space. Our assortment of blooms are also a great choice for local restaurants and business looking to add fresh, natural color their locale.
As an add-on, members can also include in their share a weekly herb bunch. Our herbs are also grown sustainably. Members who choose this option will take to the gardens and harvest their own herbs (as per the week’s allowable limit) with guidance from Sweet Earth Co. staff. This Herb Harvest program will include basil, rosemary, thyme, chives, parsley, mint, cilantro, lemongrass and edible flowers such as nasturtiums and calendula.

Once you have signed up for a CSA share I will contact you at the beginning of the season (June) to let you know the exact week your CSA flower share will start. Farming is so dependent on the weather and our flower crop will develop according to our spring weather.
