Work-Shift Requirement

All basic Summer and Winter shares include a work-shift requirement in addition to cost.

 

Work-Shift Requirement

The CSA relies on its members to run the pickups. Per the agreement signed by all members, this CSA involves a required time commitment in addition to CSA costs. You may complete your requirement on any pick-up day. 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). 

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

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

Note: Members who end up not fulfilling the requirement, will receive penalty fees.

 

 

Work-Shift Location
