This year give them something truly original! How about one month of amazing vegetables and glorious greens from the Garden to get them energized in the New Year!

For January only we are offering a One-Month Half-Share (4 weeks) of Seasonal Vegetables or Greens at the peak of our Season.  A perfect gift for that someone special.  Subscribe below and we will contact you to make arrangements for notifying the gift recipient and confirming pick up details.

Pickups are easy: 1) Wednesdays at the Farmer’s Market in front of Whole Foods Market Pompano (US1), OR 2) Saturdays on our “farm” off of I95 & Sample.

This is a perfect ‘last-minute’ gift that you won’t want to miss!
 
Our vegetables are seasonal, local, and grown using organic methods.   We only sell what we grow.  Every share purchased ensures garden vegetables are also going to families in need and supporting the GrowCity Youth Program.  Tax-receipt available.
