Urban Farm, CSA, and More!
Nestled along the sunny city street of McCullens Avenue in Eureka, Fresh Roots Humboldt Urban Farm offers an array of food, knowledge, and innovation. For the past few years we have transformed this unasumming home into a wealth of food productivity and a space for others to learn the knowledge and skills needed to feed their minds' and bodies'.
Urban (Nano) CSA
Fresh Roots Humboldt offers Nano CSAs for those who wish to support local farmers and energetic interns. Due to our location, an amazing orographic affect occurs bringing us a Blue Lake Effect that allows our farm to plant many warm weather corps you may not normally be planted along the North Coast. Hence, Fresh Roots Humboldt has the ablity to offer crops like those from an inland farm with less travel and carbon footprint.
