It’s that time again – 2012 CSA sign-up is now open!

The Kensington Windsor Terrace CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) offers two pick-up options:

Wednesdays 4:00-6:00 p.m. at the East 4th Street Community Garden. Members are asked to commit to one volunteer shift during the season; Wednesday shifts are from 3:30 to 6:15 p.m. Pick-ups begin Wednesday, June 6th and end on Wednesday, November 14th.

Saturdays 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 at the East 4th Street Community Garden. Members are asked to commit to one volunteer shift during the season (which may be on either Wednesday or Saturday); Saturday shifts are from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Pick-ups begin Saturday, June 9th and end on Saturday, November 17th.

Our farm, Garden of Eve, is offering online sign up:
Please read through the instructions below for the online form:

1. Pick-up Site - Choose your location and pick-up day. You must choose either Wednesday or Saturday.

2. Share - Choose your vegetable share: full (every week), half (every other week), full combo (vegetables, fruit, eggs and flowers every week with a discount over ordering these options individually), half combo (vegetables, fruit, eggs and flowers every other week with a discount over ordering these options individually).

3. Options - Add additional options to your share: full or half shares of flowers, eggs or fruit.

4. Terms - You can either pay all at once or choose to pay in 3 installments. Online payment is via electronic payment from your checking account or by credit card.


5. Contact Info - Set-up an account with your email address and password and provide your contact info. We will use the email addresses to create our 2012 mailing list so please provide the best address to contact you.

For members with half shares, you can indicate in this section your preference for an A week (beginning Wed., June 6th or Sat., June 9th) or B week (beginning Wed., June 13th or Sat., June 16th) and we will try to accommodate you. We will do our best to accommodate your request. You will be notified of your pick-up week before the season begins.

6. Payment information


Garden of Eve will collect KWT CSA’s $15 administration fee for us. The fee is used for expenses like tables and scales, offsetting the Garden’s cost for hosting our pick-ups, and a membership contribution to Just Food, which has been instrumental in setting up our CSA and providing ongoing tools and training.

Volunteer signup will be online again this year: more information will be forthcoming closer to the season opening.

More information about the season, including Garden of Eve’s CSA member agreement, can be found at their site: http://www.gardenofevefarm.com/csa.htm.

We will also hold three orientation meetings to answer any questions about the season you may have:
  • Wednesday, April 18th at 4:00 pm at Brooklyn Commune, 601 Greenwood Ave.
  • Wednesday, April 18th at 7:00 pm at Brooklyn Commune, 601 Greenwood Ave.
  • Saturday, April 21st at 12:00 p.m. at the E. 4th Street Community Garden

In the meantime, please reply directly to kwtcsa@gmail.com with any questions!
Best,
The KWT CSA Core Group
