*We need to have a minimum of 10 orders to host this share. If the minimum isn’t met, you will receive a full refund.

Please understand that part of the economic mission of CSA is to support the efforts of local farmers, and a big part of that support is getting cash into the farmers’ hands during the off-season, to allow for seed purchases and farm maintenance at a time when no other income is coming in.
To that end, CSA members are required to pay for the entire season before distributions begin in June. In fact, we prefer that you pay for your entire membership right away. Since that’s not always so easy to do, installment payment plans are available. To inquire about a payment plan, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: payment plan. If payments are not received by established deadlines, membership may be subject to late fees or cancellation.
Please note that there is a work requirement for this CSA. As an all-volunteer operation, Grand Street CSA relies on the work-contribution of members in order to function. We are using a separate service called SignUp.com to let you pick your own shifts. Every member is expected to sign up for a minimum number of distribution shifts during the season. The total number of required shifts (1 or 2) will be determined after the registration period has closed and is dependent on the total number of members for the coming season. Instructions for fulfilling this requirement will be provided at that time.
If you have any questions, please write to email@example.com. Thanks!
