Community Farm & CSA

Located on West 16th Street, the 2.5 acre Jesus Center Farm and CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is more than just growing crops—it’s about harvesting hope—providing interns healing, hope, practical skills, and so much more.

In 2012, we were excited to receive land that was in close proximity to the Jesus Center, and in the spring of 2013, produced its first crop of fruits and vegetables. As with most community projects, the Jesus Center Farm is a product of many organizations and individuals that believe in the work that the Jesus Center does for our homeless population.

Without the generous land donation from The Growden Family, and all of the hands, hearts and prayers of many others, the farm would have remained a concept, instead of a fruitful reality!

Harvesting Hope CSA at the Jesus Center Farm

At the Jesus Center Farm we are growing more than a crop, we are harvesting hope!


What is a CSA?
A concept that began in the early 80’s, CSA stands for Community Sponsored Agriculture. It is a network of community members pledging support to a local farmer and his production. It is an opportunity to eat seasonally, more sustainably and locally. Think of a magazine subscription, but instead the delivery is fresh produce!

Why join our CSA?
Membership pledges directly fund a farm internship program for our guests who rely on the Jesus Center for meals. The internships create an opportunity to learn about agriculture, and the creation of marketable job skills. The farm provides a beautiful venue to encourage healing relationships with themselves, God and our community.

What does a membership include?
Our members receive a box of fresh produce that has been planted, cultivated and harvested by Jesus Center interns & volunteers on a bi-weekly basis. Each box includes farm news highlighting recipes each month to inspire our members to cook up delicious meals using our specific crops. We offer 3, 6 or 12 month memberships.
