What is a CSA? 

CSA stands for community supported agriculture which marries a relationship between farmer and community member through a food share program. CSA members pay upfront, which helps your farmer cover the cost of seeding & equipment & in turn,  gives you an official food subscription dropped off at a central pick up location in the city or for an additional cost, delivered right to your door.

Why Rainbow Forest ? 

Rainbow Forest Collective products are non GMO and pesticide free. We provide our customers with a food box and or fresh micro-greens delivered right to our customer or dropped off at a designated pick up location in Winnipeg. We are made up of an eclectic group of community volunteers, workers, trained staff, and professional mentors, who are working together alongside Seeds of Life Alliance members and volunteers to bring mentor-ship and training programs to at-risk-youth.

 

Our core values are built on the foundation of sustainable and regenerative land base practices that work to re-mediate land and bring together community through the simple time honored tradition of farming. 

 

Since 2015, Seeds of Life Alliance & Rainbow Forest Collective have been working closely with Manitoba Youth Center & OPK (http://www.opkmanitoba.com/) to bring wood working, art therapy, and food growing mentor-ship programs to at-risk-youth.

 

Your CSA contribution goes back to supporting our food movement program & expanding our mentor-ship programs & community outreach campaigns.

Last Years CSA provided 25 members with a variety of produce & funded another year of mentorship programs with MYC & OPK

* This is our second year on new acreage. We are learning the land and growing on new soil therefore we want to be fully transparent that new soil & land is unpredictable . We will do our best to ensure that we get all the listed produce in your CSA box, however,  factoring our circumstance, this year comes with many unprecedented challenges. We anticipate that we will have another successful growing year and have the utmost faith in our this new land, but want to be 100% transparent with our supporting partners. We appreciate your support, understanding & patience during this part of our journey as we grow together! We look forward to providing you with the freshest produce this summer. * Your support funds next years larger Mandala Garden, mentorship programs for our not for profit partners,  as well as a green house to bring you more produce & much variety in the coming years
