Because we have a limited number of shares offered to us by the farm, shares are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. CSA’s are not businesses and depend entirely on volunteers to function. As a result, we have come up with the fairest and most practical way to distribute the tasks as we could think of. We are always open to new suggestions and for fresh blood in the core group. Don’t be afraid to say hello and state your piece. We are all in this together.
The first thing anyone should do is sign up to receive our email newsletter. This is how we communicate all important information to our members including upcoming sign-ups and CSA events.

2017 signups are closed. Check back in early 2018 to sign up for next summer.
We host the first signup event of the year at the Open House in February at Sunnyside Community Services. Returning members in good standing and new members are invited to join and sign up for the following harvest season (25 weeks from June through November).
The remaining shares are sold at subsequent sign-up events, and are open to everyone, on a first-come, first-serve basis (usually during February and March).
We also have monthly special product shares, which are available for signups in the Winter, Spring and Fall. We currently offer fish, beer, kombucha and soap. These shares are available to anybody, even if you don’t have a vegetable share.

And we have year-round groceries via the Lewis Waite Farm Network. These items are ordered a la carte via the Lewis Waite CSA portal and are delivered, in general, every two weeks throughout the year. They are also available to anybody, even if you don’t have a vegetable share.
