Summer shares are now available for the Roots to River Farm community supported agriculture (CSA) program in New Hope. Full and half shares are offered to area residents in a program running from June through October.

A flower share is also available, including 16 weekly or 8 biweekly fresh bouquets.
Roots to River Farm grows over 250 varieties of vegetables without pesticides or chemicals and with the intention of nurturing the soil and ecology of the land.
