Crop Box Pick-up

As part of our 8ight Ways to Wellness, this program can make it easier for you to eat more fruits and vegetables.  Sign-up as a CSA member and receive a weekly or bi-weekly Crop Box filled with locally grown produce, meat, eggs, yogurt and other artisan goods. Brought to you by Washington University’s Office of Sustainability and Wellness Connection in partnership with HOSCO (Holistic Organic Sustainable Cooperatives).

Crop Box Options

Participants purchase a farm share when signing-up, and in return, receive a weekly or bi-weekly basket of locally grown items according to the type of Crop Box selected.

Options include:

  • The Basics – $20 per box
  • Basic Goodness – $40 per box
  • Goodness Gracious – $50 per box
  • Build Your Own Box – Prices vary. This box is fully customizable.

You can cancel or put your account on hold at any time. New participants will be charged a one-time $15 registration fee.

We will honor the initial registration fee that current WashU CSA customers (via Local Farmer) have already paid and offer a one-time coupon code for those looking to switch to the new contracted CSA provider, HOSCO. To receive this code, contact WUSM Sustainability Coordinator, Heather Craig at
