WHAT IS THE WINTER CSA SHARE?
CUSTOMIZE YOUR BOX!
Customized boxes will allow you to select preferences at sign-up and then customize each pick up based on our harvest. This will help you actually use everything in the box because you’ll love everything you are getting! On a special diet and can’t eat potatoes? Not a problem, just switch them out for a different item you prefer. Want eggs some months but not others? Not a problem, just switch them out.
Vacation planned? Need to change your dropsite? No problem. You can easily put a “hold” on your box and schedule two boxes on a different pick up date so no more missing out on those veggies you paid for.
Pre-boxed pickups, twice in December and monthly Jan-May:
WINTER SHARE with EGGS includes produce and 1 dozen eggs grown at Garden of Eve. $385 ($55/pick up/7 pick ups).
FALL (Dec-Jan) includes our own fresh organic field-grown greens such as kale, collards, Swiss chard, and Brussels sprouts, as well as stored items such as beets, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, cabbage, celeriac, daikon, onions, garlic, and winter squash.

Our CSA (like most CSAs) require our members to volunteer each season. We mainly need volunteers to staff our pick-ups on Wednesdays. we also need people with cars to pick up unclaimed shares and deliver to food pantry. We use an online sign up website. Members who do not show up to their chosen volunteer slot, and do not make it up with another slot/job may be excluded from joining the CSA for the following season.
