Our HarvestShare program offers an income-inclusive, Community Supported Agriculture program: fresh vegetables, fruit, and bread distributed each week for 32 weeks, April through December. We offer a “Warm Season” CSA (April-October) and a “Cool Season” CSA (October-December). Participants are also invited to enjoy our workdays, potluck meals, workshops, cooking demonstrations, special events, and worship services.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
An abundant and diverse serving of fresh, sustainably-grown vegetables, fruit, and brick-oven bread. All produce will be priced and packed according to its comparable retail value at local farmers’ markets. See our Harvest Calendar for more details.
Join us for the Cool Season HarvestShare, October 21 – December 12. Box size, pricing, and pick-up options are listed in the sign-up form below. You can pay with a check (made out to Anathoth Community Garden) or through PayPal on our “Donate” page. Purchases made through PayPal will include a small processing fee. Garden mailing address: Anathoth Community Garden, PO Box 138, Cedar Grove, NC 27231.
Please consider sharing the harvest by donating a full share or half share. Donated shares go to households referred to us by the Orange County WIC Programs, Prospect Hill Community Health Center, churches, local Cedar Grove community members, and other HarvestShare members. All donated share costs are tax-deductible.
To refer a household for HarvestShare, contact us by October 1 at anathothgarden.org or (413) 884-5224.
- Expand distribution of fresh, organic produce, ensuring food access for more food-insecure people in and around Cedar Grove.
- Engage, educate, and empower local teenagers with the skills to grow and market food and work together collaboratively, through our Open Hands program and our partnership with Volunteers for Youth.
- Connect urban and suburban people with rural needs and gifts, and vice versa.
- Create an innovative and sustainable revenue stream which will allow Anathoth to deepen its mission and advance a model of an effective, faith-based community garden.
We encourage all HarvestShare participants to share the work of growing the produce for at least two workdays throughout the season, which should include joining us for a potluck meal (so bring a dish to share) and, often, cooking demonstrations, pizza parties, music, poetry readings, and other forms of fun. Workdays are Saturdays 9-1, followed by a potluck meal, and Tuesdays 5-8 p.m., followed by a potluck meal.
The purpose is to fellowship with one another, not merely to pick up a box. We will say a prayer of thanksgiving for the food together before it is distributed and the potluck meal is shared.
