The FairShare Farm garden is an shared garden space without individual plots. The organic vegetables are grown communally and harvest is split with elders in the Como area and participating gardeners. FairShare Farm has an ongoing relationship with the Southeast Seniors and the Little Kitchen Foodshelf. It is a learning space, so all levels of gardeners are welcome. To facilitate gathering and learning, the FairShare members often host SkillShares and monthly events called Farm On! - the third Saturday of each month from 11AM - 1PM.

Supporters are still a part of the gardens, while only giving as much time and energy as they are able. The following table shows the differences between Supporter and Member:
