Each week we send an email with updates on the fields, recipes for your more unique veggies, and other features.
We Partner with awesomelocal businesseswho share our values and care about building Edmonton’s food economy.
These partners act as pick-up locations for your CSA bounty. Each Thursday you get to visit our friends closest to you and pick up the goods.
The bonus here is you get an excuse to drop in on your local baker, butcher, deli, or cooking shop and fully complement your Riverbend Gardens veggies.
This model builds community. It grows incredible relationships and bolsters a network of food-loving people that want to improve how we think about food.
This allows us to do what we’re good at. This alleviates distribution pressures and allows us to stay in the fields, where farmers perform best.
