Toledo Grown CSA Shares

Toledo Grown CSA

Toledo Botanical Garden’s Toledo GROWs program announces an exciting local food opportunity—the Toledo Grown Food Hub.

Local urban farmers sell produce to the food hub which, in turn, sells it to local buyers. Support your local growers and the Toledo GROWs program by purchasing a Toledo Grown CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share!

  • Choose between a full share (portioned for a family of 3-4 for the week) or a half share (portioned for 1 or 2)
  • Support local farmers using sustainable growing methods—no harmful chemicals
  • Receive a variety of vegetables and herbs, including many “staples” such as carrots, lettuce, peppers, onions, etc.—whatever is ready that week
