Volunteer Sign-ups are Open

It’s everyone’s favorite CSA time: Volunteer Sign-up!

Don’t all rush at once, our site might crash. But also don’t put it off too long or you might end up with a shift you’d rather not do… I’m  looking at you, toilets.

Just kidding, none of our shifts involve cleaning toilets.

But really, the new sign-up forms are all ready for you. Click here to choose your shift. 

Also volunteer related, we’re looking for new members for our core group, if you’d like to volunteer in ways other than handing out shares. It’s a great opportunity to really see how the CSA functions, and give input on events and fundraisers we do.  Contact us to learn more about open spots (and their veggie benefits).

Winter Market is Coming!

It’s time for our annual holiday market, and this year it kicks off the first day of Winter Shares!

The holiday market is a chance to showcase local vendors, while giving you an easy one-stop location for holiday shopping. This year we’re featuring nine local vendors, including handmade accessories, soap, yummy treats and more.

Come check it out December 13th from 5:00-8:00pm.
