General Description: Root Radical Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) provides 75 vegetable shares and 30 egg shares to Kingston area households. We offer two vegetable share sizes and a wide assortment of vegetables throughout the season. Most of our work is done by hand or with human powered tools. We also use tractors for spreading compost and tilling the garden in the spring and for other heavy lifting and moving. We have a 1150 square foot greenhouse for starting our own plants, we use drip irrigation systems in our gardens and do some seed saving. To supply our year round egg shares we have about 60 hens. The hens have free choice organic grains and all the pasture and insects they can forage in the growing season. Our henhouse is portable and we move the house weekly to ensure that the hens always have access to green pasture.
