Hopkins CSA

Sign up for the 2015 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) season at Hopkins!


In a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model, consumers buy directly from regional farmers. Consumers pay up front for a share in the season’s harvest. This helps cover production costs and ensures a steady market, helping smaller farmers remain in business.

  • Farm Alliance Certified produce delivered by One Straw Farm from June-November to the Homewood campus at Charles Street Market and the School of Public Health in East Baltimore.
  • Available to all JHU faculty, staff, and students.
  • Students who will be out of town for the summer can sign up for a Fall Semester Student Share to receive produce from September - November.

Real Food Hopkins coordiantes the Homewood CSA Program. Check here more information on pickup times, location and FAQs.

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) and Maryland's One Straw Farm established the first CSA project at the Bloomberg School in 2007 and have since connected hundreds of faculty, staff and students to fresh, local, Food Alliance Certified produce while communicating key food system issues. In 2011, the Center began offering members the option to supplement their produce with a share of antibiotic-free, pasture-raised poultry from Albright Farms. This year, in addition to roasting birds, Albright Farms is offering chicken pieces and grass-fed, hormone- and antibiotic-free ground beef processed by a local family butcher. Members may join the One Straw Farm Produce CSA, the Albright Farms Poultry CSA, or both.

Ideas in Action

Think before you print.

Office paper is highly recyclable, but a lot gets wasted. Waste reduction is more cost-effective than recycling because it reduces the amount of material that needs to be collected, transported and processed.
