From farm to table. . .
At the heart of Pulaski Grow is the training of youth to be workforce ready inside a working aquaponics and hydroponics produce business. This allows trainees to learn as they work while offering the community fresh produce year round. When the community purchases produce from us or one of our commercial customers, they are supporting the ongoing work of helping area youth gain sustainable skills for employment and life. In a sense, every CSA customer is a partner in the mission of Pulaski Grow. We do our best to provide excellent customer service as a way to show our respect for our customers as well as model Pulaski Grow expectations for our trainees. As we like to say, we are produce with a purpose!
What is CSA?
Community-supported agriculture (CSA - sometimes known as community-shared agriculture) refers to a particular network or association of individuals who have pledged to support one or more local farms, with growers and consumers sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA members - or subscribers - pay at the onset of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest; once harvesting begins, they periodically receive shares of produce.
What are Pulaski Grow's CSA subscription periods?
We have quarterly subscription: January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-December.
How much produce will I get and how often?
Our CSA packages come in two sizes: a full share is geared toward a family or vegetarians and averages around a crate full of produce; the half share (half-crate) is better suited for households of one to two people. Your CSA share will be available weekly.
Will the amount of produce I receive each week be the same?
With a CSA, customers and growers share the risks and benefits of growing. Some weeks you will have
extra in your crate and other times there will be less. We will stay in touch to let you know what to expect in your coming week’s crate.
What happens if I am out of town or forget to pick up my CSA?
If you forget to make arrangements and your CSA share is not picked up, it will be donated to a local
community feeding program.
How would I pay for a CSA share?
CSA customers pay in full at the beginning of the share period. This allows Pulaski Grow to plan accordingly.

Our CSA program will deliver greenhouse-produced greens and herbs year round. We also will have other produce such as cucumbers, green beans, sugar snap peas, peppers and tomatoes in smaller quantities. All of our products are grown at Pulaski Grow using sustainable and organic production techniques and (mostly) renewable energy. All pest control is accomplished using OMRI certified controls and methods.
