Why Our CSA Membership Matters:
Our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) membership is not just about receiving stunning flower arrangements; it’s about supporting your local community and embracing the benefits of sustainable, seasonal blooms. CSA is a partnership between you and Southside Blooms, where you invest in our farm’s future and share in the rewards of our harvest.
Why Support Local CSA Flowers?
- Fresher, Locally Grown Flowers: Our CSA flowers are grown right here in the Chicagoland area, ensuring that you receive the freshest, most vibrant blooms available.
- Support Local Agriculture: By becoming a CSA member, you directly support local farmers and promote sustainable farming practices in your community.
- Reduce Environmental Impact: Buying local reduces the carbon footprint associated with transporting flowers from distant locations. Our CSA flowers have a shorter journey from field to vase.
- Seasonal Variety: CSA flowers showcase the changing seasons, offering a diverse range of blooms and foliage throughout the year, enhancing your connection to nature’s cycles.
- Community Building: CSA memberships foster a sense of community by connecting you with fellow flower enthusiasts and the dedicated team at Southside Blooms.

What Is CSA?
If you are hearing the acronym CSA for the first time, you are probably wondering what exactly it is.
CSA is an abbreviation for Community Supported Agriculture. When you sign up for our CSA, you purchase a “share” of our flowers for the upcoming growing season.
Our CSA program provides an opportunity for you, the community, to invest financially in our farm at the beginning of a growing season when sales are typically at their lowest and our operating costs at their highest. The commitment of your share helps us invest in seeds, supplies, and equipment before our growing season takes bloom.
