What’s in a Share?
Our 5 greenhouses allow us to offer a unique Spring Greens CSA Share before most local produce is ready. (See What is CSA? for more on this model).
CSA members sign up at the beginning of the season to receive 10 weekly baskets of greens from April to mid-June. Each basket includes 5-6 bags or bunches of freshly harvested greens ready for salad, smoothies, or cooking.
Items will include mesclun (mixed salad), head and leaf lettuce, spinach, arugula, bok choy, baby kale, chard, mustard and Asian greens, microgreens, basil and more. Contents will vary each week based on availability. Each basket is worth $25 for a total share price of $250.
Pick-up Locations and Schedule
Our Spring Greens CSA includes 10 weekly deliveries, from the week of April 9th to the week of June 11th. Shares are picked up each week at your chosen location, at a preset day and time. See our 2018 schedule below.
