Make your food dollars go further. With the low loonie, droughts in California, and climate change challenging our globalized food system, feel good that your dollar goes further close to home! From our commitment to the most low impact forms of agriculture, to paying a living wage, your dollar goes further here. This starts from choices we make at the seed catalogue.We get most of our seeds from William Dam, WestCoast Seeds and Trade Wind Fruits. Where possible, all seeds are open-pollinated, certified organic, and always untreated.
We love colour and your basket will be filled with dragon tongue bush beans, dancing with Smurfs tomatoes, chocolate beauty peppers, dinosaur kale, chioggia beets, purple haze carrots, and Ronde De Nice zucchini to name just a few. Our goal is to fill your basket with the full colours of the season. You will never be bored with our wide selection of heirloom, untreated seeds. Last year we grew over 100 varieties, with 30 different kinds of tomatoes alone. Our weekly newsletter includes a recipe and we strive to balance uniqueness with the familiar flavours you crave.
With 2015 a huge success, we look forward to offering a share in 2016. Home delivery is automatically included, so don't worry about driving to our farm to pick up your share, or to some drop point in the city. We make sure you get your share in the most sustainable way possible, by bicycle, thanks to our friends at THAAT Co-op. Read more about share types and pricing here.

How We're Different
Common Ground is not just a farm; we're a Teaching Farm. This means that we offer not just fresh organic produce, but also a wide variety of workshops that are designed to give you the tools to get you off of the industrial food grid. We offer different levels of CSA shares, so you can tailor your subscription to how much you want to eat as well as how much you want to learn. Check out our Share Types section for more information on share structure, and for our sign-up form.
We prefer e-mail money transfer,* but we also take cash or cheque. E-mail payments can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Half of the cost of your share is due upon sign-up; the other half is due July 1st. Make your payment in full by April 1st and we will throw in an free workshop and backyard growers guide. Please let us know if you need to make alternate arrangements.
*Opting out of online payment methods such as PayPal allows us to save on transaction fees, and to pass on those savings to you in the form of bicycle-based farm-to-door home delivery for all of our members.
