Where To Find Your Box
Enter through the front door on Lincoln Avenue. We will take your name at the front counter and bring your air-conditioned share to you from the back.
Remove the liner with vegetables from your CSA box and leave the CSA box. If you receive fruit, take the fruit box home with you. Do not return the liner from your vegetable box or your fruit box, as the farm cannot re-use them. Please recycle them.

Site Host Profile
The Elderberries Biodynamic Outpost and 3fold Cultural Hub is inspired by Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner’s myriad indications for agriculture, economics, art, and social life. (Steiner inspired many additional initiatives, such as Waldorf Education, Anthroposophical Medicine, Eurythmy, and Architecture as a Synthesis of the Arts.) It is next door to the Rudolf Steiner Branch-Chicago.
The Outpost will soon be showcasing Biodynamic products with an emphasis on local Biodynamic farms. The Outpost will eventually be sponsoring educational programs to highlight Biodynamics and other Steiner-inspired initiatives. They wish to build a bridge between Biodynamic farmers and the city and to have a space specifically dedicated to those who work out of Biodynamic principles.
They will also be working to build up community and cultural life in Chicago. They will be working with, empowering, and learning from the youth of Thresholds, a live in high school for youth who have aged out of the foster care system.
Young people from around the world come to work, live and intern throughout the year at their Have Seeds House in Los Angeles that works with youth in distressing living conditions and adults who live in special care facilities.
Learn more about the Outpost at their Facebook Page.
Dottie Zold, originally from the Philadelphia/New Jersey area, is a community activist working out of Rudolf Steiner’s Threefold Commonwealth. She was inspired by her experience at the Goetheanum in Dornach at the youth section house at the bottom of the hill and opened a cafe in Hollywood called Elderberries Threefold Cafe. Her imagination was that she could create a safe space for the graduating Waldorf youth, and those who were more at risk, to meet around peer to peer conversations while finding their work and making a difference in their community. She began to work more deeply with the houseless youth from the foster care system and adults facing social and mental challenges. She, along with a few of the coworkers of the cafe, founded the Have Seeds House in Los Angeles that houses the coworkers and other at risk youth, and a cultural hub – Urban First Aid: Art As Medicine down the street from the cafe. Now in Chicago Dottie is hoping to bring greater awareness of the farmers working out of the biodynamic principles founded by Rudolf Steiner in 1920. She is also striving to make these foods and available to those in more economically challenged areas.
Frank Aleph Agrama is an organizer, artist and educator, co-founding Have Seeds House, Urban First Aid: Art as Medicine, and Elderberries Biodynamic Outpost & 3Fold Cultural Hub. He is working to seed a society shaped by creativity and community well-being. He found his love for the living social art after graduating from film school, questioning how to create a real life miracle rather than make one up in a movie. Born and raised in Hollywood, Frank walked into the original Elderberries on his lunch break, and had to ask himself ‘what in the world is in this salad?’ Then he went walking through Raphael Gardens, and asked himself ‘what in the world is going on in this garden?’ He soon told himself ‘I better learn about Waldorf Education.’ He uses his Waldorf certification as a foundation for cultivating sustainable relationships with co-workers, the stars, and the international Youth Section, which he is helping to lead in North America (until he gets too old.)
