Veggies are Coming!

Don’t forget: our Summer Season Q&A/Orientation is May 30th from 6-8PM at Sunnyside Community Services. It’s your chance to come ask any questions about pick-ups, volunteering and events. Plus, we’ll have our new tote bags for sale! (Proceeds benefit the Subsidy Program.)

Vegetable pick-ups start the week after, on June 6th.

Volunteer shifts are now open online! Remember, each share requires 2 volunteer shifts for the summer season. Sign-up early to save your spot. The Sunnyside CSA is 100% volunteer run–everyone doing their part to help is what keeps us going!

Important CSA Updates!

Lots of dates and great stuff to kick off our season this year! Please make note:

Vegetable start date has changed to June 6th. We’ve had a particularly rainy season so far, and shifting the start date allows for a stronger crop! The extra week share will be made up somewhere in the season, date TBD for now.

Share payments due May 13th. Payments and final numbers need to be sent to our vendors; please pay by Monday to secure your share.

Subsidy applications due May 17th. The CSA Subsidy program is amazing–it works out to roughly $12/week for vegetables, or $3.50/week for fruit. Click here to learn more.

2019 Summer Season Q&A is May 30th. Come to the Sunnyside Community Services (same place you pick up your veggies) for a Q&A with members of the core group. If your new to the CSA, you’ll learn all you need to know about pick-ups, volunteer hours, and CSA events. For returning members, come to brush up on how things run, ask anything that’s been on your mind, or share ideas!

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).
