We are excited to provide another year of flowers to CSA members this growing season! We dramatically expanded the size + scope of our farm last year by doubling our growing space + renting another half-acre closer to the coast to grow cut flowers for farmers market + CSA customers. We learned so much last year + are excited to offer more than 210 glorious varieties of cut flowers this year from our tiny space bursting with life + color!
The flower CSA is fresh, locally + organically grown + hand-arranged seasonal flowers for ten weeks in the late spring // early summer of 2021, including the delicate, tissue-paper blooms of Icelandic poppies, nigella, phacelia, forget me nots, sweet peas, zinnias, lisianthus, sunflowers, snapdragons, amaranth, dahlias, asters, marigolds, ammi, heirloom chrysanthemums and so many more.
Local pickup in the flower field behind Carpinteria Tuesday mornings, downtown Santa Barbara Tuesday afternoons, Thursday afternoons at the Ojai Community Farmers' Market or Sunday mornings at the Ojai Farmers' Market. We will be in touch with firm dates + addresses.
All flowers grown outdoors in a more-than-organic field kissed by coastal fog + ocean breezes. Supporting local, chemical-free flowers is good for the environment: cut flower-growing can be a very toxic + resource intensive endeavor + as with our medicine gardens we strive to honor the earth, increase biodiversity + use resources sparingly. Additionally, this winter we have transitioned our fields to no-till growing, which furthers our commitment to building living soil + biodiversity.
