    Check out Providence Farms in Edmond. Looks like a great option for Community Supported Agriculture. They also have gardening classes, woodworking and camps! No chemicals and all produce is heirloom varieties. https://providence-farms-2.square.site/

    The Cityside Farm just down the road from the Zoo is starting up their Saturday farm stand. They have lots of farm fresh eggs, freshly baked sourdough bread and will start harvesting veggies this weekend! Order online at www.okcityside.com. They are sustainable, eco friendly and super close so it reduced carbon footprint!
