Distribution Shift Sign Up

You will soon be receiving confirmation of the types of shares you purchased and the dates of your pick-ups. As you know, each KWT CSA member is expected to work at least one volunteer shift, and possibly two. Most CSAs require members to work two volunteer shifts. In past seasons, we've been able to function well with members volunteering just once. However, this is our first year with the Wednesday distribution, so we're not absolutely certain how it will sort out. We may need to ask members to volunteer for an additional shift.


If you've signed up for a Wednesday distribution, please volunteer to work at a Wednesday distribution. If you've signed up for a Saturday distribution, you can volunteer to work at either a Saturday or a Wednesday distribution.

We’re using VolunteerSpot (an online sign up and reminder tool) to schedule our upcoming activity. Please sign up--here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:
