CAN I JUST ORDER ADD-ONS WITHOUT A VEGETABLE SHARE?
Since Green Thumb is our host farm, a vegetable share is typically required to receive any add-ons. For the 2023 season, however, we have a limited number of fruit-only Wilklow shares. Flowers, Herbs, and Paste tomatoes are not available without a vegetable share. Email us for more info.
WHEN DO I START PICKING UP MY SHARE?
This first pickup date for the 2023 season is Tuesday, June 6
WHERE & WHEN WILL I PICK UP MY SHARE?
Christ Church, 326 Clinton Street (corner of Kane Street)
June 6 to December 12th (There is no pickup on July 4)
- Pickup will occur outdoors in the garden on the Clinton St side. Members will come to the table in the garden, give their names and receive their items.
CAN I BUY A HALF SHARE?
Green Thumb does not offer half shares but if members would like to split a share, that’s great! We often get 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 OR IF MY CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE AND I MOVE BEFORE THE END OF THE SEASON?
At any point, if you aren’t able to pick up your share or you no longer can be a member of the CSA, you are welcome to send a friend or a neighbor to claim it for you OR offer your shares for sale to the community.
You are also able to donate shares to Emma’s Torch, a local restaurant/non-profit in Carroll Gardens that provides culinary training to refugees, asylees, and survivors of human trafficking. Each week, if there are unclaimed shares at the end of the pickup window, they are donated to Emma’s Torch.
WILL I KNOW WHAT’S IN MY SHARE EACH WEEK SO I CAN PLAN MEALS?
Every Monday, we send out our newsletter which includes a list of items in that week’s delivery. The farmers often don’t know what they’ll be bringing to us until the last possible moment. Factors like what’s currently ripening and what’s ready to be picked go into the decision of what arrives. As soon as the farmers tell us, we tell you!
