CSA shares provide financial support to farmers before the growing season begins, allowing them to purchase the supplies they need to grow crops. Every week, you will receive a box of sustainably-grown seasonal produce. CSA shares are a wonderful way to eat seasonally and try fruits and veggies that you might not see in a grocery store.
World PEAS CSA delivers directly to Medford and Boston, so you can pick up your share right from a Tufts University campus. World PEAS welcomes new members at any time with pro-rated pricing for shares that have already started:
If you are studying at one of our other campuses or don’t live in the area, explore other CSA options or find a farm near you on Local Harvest.
The World PEAS CSA is a program of the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project (New Entry), an initiative of Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy and additional partners. New Entry is a new farmer training program that helps beginning, immigrant, and refugee farmers gain business and farm production skills and access to land, markets and other resources necessary to start a viable farm business. Learn more about World PEAS on the New Entry website.
World PEAS offers a 20-week share from mid-June to late October and an 8-week share from early September to late October.
All shares can also be gifted or donated, and SNAP benefits are accepted. See the World PEAS CSA website for details.
