Community Supporter Share
Become a premium Full Plate member! One annual payment supports our farmers year round and helps feed your neighbors! $1200 covers both your summer and winter shares (choose any pick-up or delivery option), a bonus spring box of veggies, a tax deductible donation of $100 to Healthy Food for All, and helps support our farmers.
Each season we offer a limited number of work trades in exchange for a CSA share. Working members either focus on the U-Pick garden at Stick & Stone or help the CSA coordinator with distributions. This is a great way to contribute to our local foods community and increase your access to delicious fresh fruits and vegetables! Please email Molly to apply.
Vacation & "Life Happens" Policy
1 - If something comes up last minute, just go to another day's pick up (no need to call or email Molly) and sign the Switcheroo Sheet at the back of the clipboard. We usually have enough of free choice items, but please check in with Molly about limited crops if it is not your regular scheduled pick up.
(summer and winter)
Please send Molly an email by Monday at 5pm of the week that you want to hold delivery. You may double up another week in the season.
