How it Works

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is an outlet for consumers to buy fresh, local flowers directly from our farm. We offer various subscription options to our local community with in season flowers throughout the spring, summer and fall. Your investment in the 2019 program supports our farm and helps us to buy seeds and other farm tools throughout the growing season. Every season some flowers will do better than others. This is the nature of farming. As partners, CSA members and farmers share the risk and rewards inherent with working with nature! We grow a wide diversity of flowers to create unique and bountiful bouquets for our members.

Local Sustainable Blooms

All of our CSA flowers are grown locally in the Cowichan Valley. We grow our flowers by creating a foundation of healthy soil and applying regular foliar sprays of compost tea extract. We do not use any synthetic pesticides or herbicides on our flowers. We value the importance of selecting flowers to support pollinators. For more information on our growing practices click here.

Season Length

Our CSA subscription season runs from mid-June through early October (16 weeks).

CSA Options

Our CSA bouquets are hand-crafted with care using our first pick fresh harvested flowers. Flower varieties will change during the season, starting with cooler season blooms progressing into summer and fall blooms.  Flower care tips will be included with all subscriptions to optimize vase life, which is typically around 5 to 9 days depending on the flower variety.
