I absolutely love the produce at Johnson's Backyard Garden. The quality is always great and I look forward to seeing what they have each week at the downtown Austin farmer's market. I've tried the CSA but I ended up preferring to go to the farmer's market and pick out what I want each week. The people working the booth are always super friendly and happy to answer any questions you might have. Highly recommend!

If you've ever visited a local farmers market, you've undoubtedly seen the big, black and white logo Johnson's Backyard Garden trucks. Their market space is usually the largest at any site, due to the variety of organic vegetables they grow. I've already volunteered (actually, it should be called bartering) three or four times at their Hergotz Lane location. There, flats are filled with organic soil, seeds are planted in the flats' cells, seedlings are... well, it's a fully-functioning farm. Tasks are matched up with capabilities and we are allowed to work at our own speed. The entire staff is so friendly and warm; it's not unusual to hear a "thanks for volunteering today" from everyone there. Linsday—one of the volunteer coordinators—is pleasant and patient as she shows us what we'll be doing each session. After that, those with whom we're assigned to work with are free to converse freely about our experiences working there, our personal lives, our views on politics... whatever. Before you know it, the short shift is over and we're thanked and sent home with a beautiful stash of freshly-picked, organic vegetables. Johnson's Backyard Garden is located off Airport Blvd. in east Austin amidst other large tracts of land. Parking is free and convenient. If you like to experience a calm atmosphere, thoughtful conversation, and the feeling that you've made a difference in the local community, then Johnson's is a must-do experience!

I am a CSA member here in San Antonio and pick up my produce at the Ripe Farmers Market...I love that I can switch something I don't really want for another vegetable they have there. Everyone is always very friendly and welcoming, not to mention I love the fresh organically grown veggies!!!!

I get their CSA's weekly and have loved it! It is so nice getting fresh vegetables each week and you can either be surprised or go on-line and customize your box. Mine are delivered to their Running Rope location and I've never had any issues with a pick-up. Though, putting some foods such as melons in the shade would be helpful on hot days. Definitely love learning about more veggies and watching them change with the seasons.
