Celebrate Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) during CSA Week from February 20 – 26, 2023 with YYC Growers
YYC Growers is excited to join other CSA farmers across the country to celebrate CSA Week, a national event taking place from February 20th through February 26th to promote CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).
CSA is a farm membership system that allows consumers to sign up to receive a season’s worth of a farm’s products (veggies, eggs, meat, flowers, grain, etc.) over a number of weeks. Along with getting to enjoy fresh, delicious, and local food, being a CSA member is an excellent way to support and get to know your local farmers.
Join us in promoting CSA Week, the most popular time of the year to sign-up for CSA!
When you sign up to become a CSA member, your financial support helps us prepare for the growing season. You’ll enjoy high-quality farm products while taking comfort in knowing where and how your food was grown. There has never been a better time to connect with fresh local food while helping to make our local food systems and communities more resilient.

About CSA Week
In previous years, CSA Day was led by Small Farm Central and it become “the day” when CSA farms collectively promote CSA across the country with unified messaging and urgency for members to sign up. It’s a way for all of us to encourage CSA sign-ups while promoting the CSA movement across the nation. In 2021, the CSA Innovation Network extended the event from one day to an entire week, continued it in 2022, and is doing so again in 2023!
