Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program
Get fresh greens – 365 days a year.
ABOUT OUR CSA PROGRAM
In 2019, Abbey Gardens welcomed our on-site hydroponic growing system, The Growcer. After working with the unit to develop fresh, year round greens, vegetables, and herbs, the unit returned to Ottawa for maintenance and upgrades. It’s been a long wait, but we are so excited to announce that NEW Growcer unit has officially arrived back at Abbey Gardens, and we are once again starting our journey toward producing up to 130 lbs. of veggies weekly in a soil-less, controlled environment, ensuring consistent yields and supreme products.
Community Supported Agriculture programs are rooted (literally) in the community. CSA members have farm shares in the program, and they receive the best of our seasonal produce selection all year long.
Did you know? The greens we grow will be made available to members of the public – people like you! This supports our mission of sustainability and will increase awareness and access to local food and innovative technologies.

“What if I don’t think I’ll use a weekly share?”
That’s ok! Find a friend to split your share or we can arrange to have the excess veggies donated to local food banks.
“Can you tell me more about The Growcer?”
The Growcer is an industrial-grade hydroponic fresh leafy green production system housed inside a 40-foot insulated shipping
container. It’s Arctic-grade system is professionally engineered to be rugged and industrial grade. It functions between
-52 and 35 degrees Celsius. For more information, visit www.thegrowcer.ca.
