2010 KWTCSA membership application

Kensington/Windsor Terrace CSA 2010
CSA Information

Pick up for this CSA is at the East Fourth Street Community Garden.
(located between Caton Ave and Fort Hamilton Parkway, Brooklyn)
2010 SEASON: 24 weeks, for all shares except flowers, which will be 20 weeks (ends on October 30).
The season begins Saturday, June 12th and ends Saturday, November 21st (the weekend before Thanksgiving)

Half-shares will be assigned A or B week and come for a "full" pickup every other week. Those assigned “A” week will start their pickups the first day of the season, i.e., Saturday, June 12th, and come every other week after that through the entire season. Those assigned “B” week shares will start pickups the second week, i.e., Saturday, June 19th, and come every other week after that through the entire season. If you have a preference, please indicate it on the sign-up form.

We will offer full and half shares of organic vegetables, organic flowers, non-organic local fruit, and free-range pastured eggs fed organic feed. Half shares are just slightly more than half the price of a full share. PLEASE NOTE: A vegetable share (full or half) MUST be purchased in order to purchase shares of eggs, fruit or flowers.

EGG SHARE NOTE: A full share of eggs is ½ dozen every week; a half share is ½ dozen eggs every other week.

2010 SHARE PRICES: Share prices do not include an administration fee that will be charged by the CSA coordinating group, which is separate from the farm. The KWT CSA core group will collect a $10 admin fee at your first pick-up.

Member Agreement
Members of the CSA will receive a weekly share consisting of approximately 7-12 items (shares will vary in size and weight depending on the time of the season). One aspect of CSA is that members support their farmer by sharing in the inherent risks of agriculture (poor weather, drought, crop failure, etc.) and the rewards (organic, exceptionally fresh vegetables, the bounty of a good season, etc.) involved in farming. CSA farmers purposely plan for such contingencies; the farmers use growing techniques that protect the harvest to minimize the risk and optimize the rewards. On the whole members will get a wide variety of vegetables in plentiful amounts. I understand this principle and agree that there is no guarantee on the exact amount or type of produce I will receive in my share. By participating in the CSA, I am supporting the local farmer as well as more equitable food distribution, and I am helping to create a more environmentally and economically healthy society. By becoming a member, I agree to support the farm with timely payments. I commit to picking up my share(s) weekly and I understand that if I, or someone I designate, is unable to pick up my share(s), they cannot get saved. I also agree to volunteer at distributions approximately twice as required by my CSA location.
