A Local Food CSA for KU Faculty, Staff, and Students

 

Fall 2017 shares are now available!

Sign up now for shares beginning the week of Labor Day 2017! 

 

Crops to Campus is a produce subscription service that provides KU Lawrence subscribers with a weekly share of local and organic produce delivered to campus by Common Harvest CSA.

The 2017 CSA season (24 weeks) will begin the 3rd week of May and run through the last week of October. There is also an 8-week fall share available beginning the week after Labor Day. 

New in 2017!

You gave us your feedback and we listened! In effort to make Crops to Campus a better fit for more of our campus community, Common Harvest will be implementing the following changes in 2017:

  • ​​Common Harvest has closely examined their administrative fees and reduced them so that you get more for your dollar.
  • The take one/leave one basket -- if there's something you don't want, you can leave it in the basket and take something else from the basket. 
  • Larger item sizes. We heard from many of you that sometimes, there wasn't enough of something in the bag to make a recipe, so Common Harvest will strive for larger amounts when possible. A partial share will be 4-5 items, and a full share will be 6-7 items. (Why are some item portions smaller than others?)
