Every house has substantial vegetable gardens and composting. It is a core mission of co-op life to support local food production. Members grow food for their house in their own house gardens.
Growing your own vegetables is a direct way to lower the cost of healthy living. It is also a way encourage locally sourced food. Growing your own food reflects and projects core values of health and cultivation to the community.
Co-op life has developed its own CSA to further the core mission of using suburban yards to grow and distribute food. Each house contributes 15% of their production to an additional half acre sourced at the elm street farm and Park street gardens.
Co-op life members have the opportunity to work on behalf of the CSA.
