2020 CSA Season

ENROLLMENT for the 2020 season of  the CobbleHillCSA has closed.

At this time, the pre-paid pickup of vegetables and fruit on Tuesdays is for enrolled members only (or others designated by a member to pickup their items). 

WHERE & WHEN WILL I PICK UP SHARES?

Christ Church, 326 Clinton Street (corner of Kane Street)
Tuesdays, 4:30-7:30pm
through  December 8th

  • Members will come to the door at the top of the ramp or outdoor table stand, give  your name and receive their items.  Pickup will occur outdoors in the garden on the Clinton St side.
  • Please wear a mask and wait a safe distance away if you see someone already being helped.

While the CobbleHillCSA is unable to accommodate pickups outside the distribution place and time, we have received emails from members willing to pickup boxes for at-risk members and deliver them.   Please email cobblehillcsanews@gmail.com if you’d like to be connected.

 

TELL ME ABOUT  WORK SHIFTS
Each CobbleHillCSA member is required to work 1-2 work shifts during the CSA season dependent on membership totals.  Members can go straight to the workshift sign up page by clicking here or will receive an email from our work shift coordinator directing them to the site. All members will be added to a listserv to use for finding a replacement should you become unavailable for a shift that you have previously sign up to work.

There will be two shift options every week, they will be solo and entail supervising box pickup by our members.
  • Tuesday pickup opening shift 4:15 to 6:00pm
  • Tuesday pickup closing shift: 6:00 to 7:45pm

We have devised a plan along with Father Mark at Christ Church to account for distancing and will be updating the language on our website.  Please bear with us while we revise the work shift descriptions based on our new 2020 boxed produce model and look out for further communication detailing shift roles and duties.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I’M OUT OF TOWN AND I CAN’T PICK UP MY SHARE?
If you aren’t able to pick up your share, feel free to send a friend or a neighbor to claim it for you.  Rest assured that if you can’t pick up, all unclaimed shares will be donated at the end of the evening and nothing will go to waste.  Last season, we successfully partnered with Emma’s Torch, a local restaurant/non-profit that provides culinary training to refugees, asylees, and survivors of human trafficking and will do so again for the 2020 season.

WHAT IF MY CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE AND I MOVE AWAY BEFORE THE END OF THE SEASON?
If you would like to sell the balance of your share, please reach out to the CSA community, post on the CSA FaceBook and Instagram.  Some members may want to add a second share, and sometimes others contact the CSA late in the season about a “fall share options” (though we don’t offer that in general).
