Richmond residents have the opportunity to receive fresh locally grown food while supporting local agriculture and community and school gardens.

The local community has been working hard to increase local food production, which positively impacts public health, reduces pollution and empowers community members and youth.

The Farm to Table Community Supported Agriculture project (CSA) is a youth and local resident run non-profit venture led by Urban Tilth to ensure fresh, 100 percent locally-grown produce is available to all West Contra Costa residents.

The project currently offers three different memberships, each of which will get you a 10-pound box of fresh, locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables each week.

  •   $25 week ($5 is tax-deductible and makes it possible for a low-income family to pay only $10 per box)
  • $20 week
  • $10 week, for low-income families;

For an extra $2.50 per week, you can have your box delivered anywhere in West County.

There are currently two pickup locations:

Adams Crest Farm, 5000 Patterson Circle (off Arlington Blvd), Richmond

Urban Tilth Office, 31 Maine Ave (off 2nd St.), Richmond
