|WHAT WILL MY SHARE LOOK LIKE?
Members receive 5-7 items per week, of the freshest, Certified Organic* seasonal vegetables grown on Green Thumb Farm in Water Mill, NY. (*Certified Organic by NOFA-NY, LLC) For the 2020 season, Green Thumb will be boxing shares thereby easing distribution contact and limiting the handling of produce.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
A weekly basic share from Green Thumb is $21.50/week. This includes an extra $2.50/week to cover additional costs for 2020. In addition there is a CSA annual membership fee which the CSA Core Group voted to decrease from $30 to $20 to offset the additional 2020 costs. This fee is used for web maintenance and registration, rent to Christ Church and office supplies like paper, tape etc.
Total cost: your enrollment week x $21.50 + $20 membership (plus 2 CSA Co-op Work Shifts)
- ($21.50/week for 25 weeks)
- CSA Membership fee $20
($579 for the full 26-week season, subtract $21.50 for each week of delayed signup. Follow the link to the farm for each weeks pro-rated share cost.)

WHERE & WHEN WILL I PICK UP MY SHARE?
Christ Church, 326 Clinton Street (corner of Kane Street)
June 16 to December 8th
- Members will come to the door at the top of the ramp, give your name and receive their box. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
CAN I SPLIT A SHARE OR BUY A HALF SHARE?
Green Thumb does not offer half shares but splitting shares are welcome and encouraged! There have been some inquiries about helping connect potential members who would like to split a share. If you are interested in splitting and need a share partner, please email email@example.com with the subject “split a share” and we will compile a list of interested parties and connect you.
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.
