Work-Shift Requirement

All basic Summer and Winter shares include a work-shift requirement in addition to cost. Alternatively, you may pay a Work-Shift waiver fee.


Work-Shift Requirement

The CSA relies on its members to run the pickups. Per the agreement signed by all members, this CSA involves a time commitment in addition to CSA costs. You may complete your requirement on any pick-up day. If you know that you will be unable to fulfill this requirement you may pay a waiver fee of $20 per shift. Your are encouraged to embrace Work-Shifts as an opportunity to give back to the farm and CSA, and to have a great time with other members!!

Winter share: the Work-Shift requirement for your Winter share is 2 hours per share which is 1 shift (each shift is 2 hours). Winter share waiver fee is $20.

Summer share: the Work-Shift requirement for your Summer share is 4 hours per share which is 2 shifts (each shift is 2 hours). Summer share waiver fee is $40.

Fall share: the Work-Shift requirement for your Fall share is 2 hours per share which is 1 shift (each shift is 2 hours). Fall share waiver fee is $20.

Note: Members who elect to perform their work-shifts but who who end up not fulfilling the requirement, will receive penalty fees at higher rates than this waiver

Summer Work-shift penalty = $60

Fall or Winter Work-shift penalty = $30

Work-Shift Location

All shifts take place at your pickup location. You are strongly urged to sign up for at least 1 morning shift! Morning shifts are most critical to running a CSA. Please work with your employer to plan ahead and email the Program Coordinator if you need any supporting documentation.
