The garden is a great opportunity for folks who enjoy the outdoors. It is also a terrific option for school service hours, master gardener volunteer hours, community groups or corporate teambuilding.
Elawa Farm is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration of Elawa Farm, a gentleman's farm built in 1915. The efforts of the Elawa Staff and countless volunteer hours have created a garden space that combines traditional farming practices with the needs and interests of our current community.
At Elawa over two acres are cultivated every year, providing a remarkable array of heirloom tomatoes, lettuces and fresh greens, carrots, beets, squash, honey, flower bouquets, herbs and more. Our freshly harvested produce and flowers are available for sale at our on-site Garden Market on Friday and Saturday mornings during the summer.
Striving towards sustainability, the garden utilizes practices such as field rotation, cover cropping, beneficial predation and organic composting. All these practices are executed by our dedicated volunteers and interns whose work ensures Elawa’s continued role here in the community as a source for fresh, organically grown local produce.
A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a popular way for members of the community to buy local, seasonal food directly from the farmer and is a program that Elawa Farm has been offering for many years. Participants of our CSA receive a weekly share of 7 – 10 produce items harvested each week for a total of 20 weeks running from June 3rd – October 15th. We grow all of our produce and flowers using sustainable growing practices, just minutes from your home. Your CSA directly supports the mission of Elawa Farm.
