Get Your Summer CSA Share at the BNC

Carrying a harvest basket of veggies

→ CSA is open & early bird prices extended ←

You can still register for a 2020 Summer CSA share! Boston Nature Center is once again teaming up with Moose Hill, our sister wildlife sanctuary in Sharon, to offer Mass Audubon members the opportunity to get approximately 18 weeks of fresh, organic vegetables.

With weekly pick-ups at the BNC on Friday afternoons, summer just couldn’t be any sweeter!

Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary partners with Ward's Berry Farm to grow certified organic produce on 17 acres of sustainably farmed land. Moose Hill oversees the management, harvesting, and distribution of the crops, and also maintains the organic standards for annual certification.

Please Note: We're actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Should it extend into the CSA season, we will make changes to our pick-up process that ensure the safety and health of our shareholders and staff.

How It Works

→ Season runs May 29–October 2 ←
