Reviews for Victory Programs' ReVision Urban Farm

Rating: 5 stars  

I discovered ReVision Urban Farm about 10 years ago. The concept of community-supported agriculture (CSA) was still pretty uncommon, and this was one of the few places doing it in the Boston area. Plus, my purchase of a weekly vegetable share supported a shelter for women and young children. It's an outstanding win-win that has only gotten better since ReVision became part of Victory Programs.
