Prince George-Norwich Meadows Farm Summer 2018 CSA Registration is Now Open!

Posted 3/19/2018 2:27pm by Rachel Nass.
Dear friends in Community Supported Agriculture,

I am writing to let you know that registration for the Summer 2018 season of the Prince George CSA is now open! We have many shares to choose from this season, including a variety of dairy, vegan, and fruit options.

The Summer 2018 season will begin in mid-June and will include 22 weekly distributions. Please note that due to some changes with the farm’s delivery times, distribution days for this summer have yet to be determined. Pick-up time and location will remain the same, 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm at the Prince George lobby (14 East 28th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues).

We are excited to be able to offer you all an early bird special if you sign up by April 15th! The cost will be only $385 for the base share – over 22 weeks, this breaks down to only $17.50 per week! Additionally, if you sign up by this date, you will receive a FREE CSA tote bag with our new logo! If you need some more time to decide, the final deadline will be May 1st, at which time the regular base price is $410 (still just $18.64 per week). To further reduce the cost, many of our members split shares with co-workers, friends, and neighbors for even more affordable healthy eating options.

Upon signing up for the Summer CSA, a $200 down payment is required – this bulk amount provides Norwich Meadows Farm with a stable financial base that allows them to buy seeds and hire labor without having to take out high interest loans. The remainder of your balance is due on the date of the first distribution.

We ask that you check back soon to visit our VolunteerSpot page to sign up to contribute one evening of your time to support our CSA community. Each volunteer shift will be from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm, and will involve assisting with distribution and clean-up. If you are unable to commit to time required for working a shift or contributing to the newsletter, you are also welcome to make a monetary donation to help subsidize a share for the low-income and previously homeless tenants of the Prince George. And in order to support continued growth of our CSA community, we invite you to share recipes, articles, and ideas for our weekly newsletter.

Sign up here! (or at http://princegeorgecsa.com/members)

Thank you for your continued support, and we are hoping you will join us for this summer’s season!

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Best,
