What happens if I miss a pick-up?
We understand that occasionally unexpected events get in the way of being able to pick up, so if you miss, we're happy to let you pick up your share at the next delivery time or pick up a double share at your next scheduled pickup. However, please understand that we plan, plant and harvest veggies especially for you, so if you miss unexpectedly, your produce will be donated. If you need to change locations or place a vacation hold, you can either let us know by email or schedule it in your member account. If possible, please let us know at least 48 hours in advance, so we know how much to harvest!
Do you offer home delivery?
Yes! We offer both personal home delivery for $5 per box, or small group delivery (2-5 shares) for $3 per box. If you find that you are missing pick-ups, you can always switch to home or small group delivery mid-season.
Do you offer scholarships or work trade?
It is important to us that anyone who wants fresh, organic, local food has access to it. This year, we are offering a a few exciting options:
We have a new Scholarship fund!! We had a generous CSA member donate money to help families who need assistance be able to participate in the CSA. That inspired us to match that amount to create a scholarship fund for the Veggie CSA. If you need assistance, let us know. (Or let us know if you're interested in donating to the fund)!
Work trade: We offer a few partial work-trade shares. In the past, we've had people work at the farmers market, come out to help harvest or plant on big work days or trade skilled labor, but we're open to your ideas. (We need some good-looking flyers and promotional materials if you're good at graphic design!)
Extended payment plan: If you need an extended payment plan, we're willing to work with you.
Food stamps: We can accept SNAP benefits for the veggie CSA as well as veggies and meats at the farmers market. Contact us for details
