Volunteer Requirement

Volunteer Requirement

 All members are expected to fulfill a volunteer requirement over the course of the CSA season. Failure to do so will impact future participation in the CSA. For the Summer 2017 season, members are required to work two shifts.

Members have the following options to fulfill their volunteer requirement:

OPTION #1: Volunteering two shifts working at the Prince George for the clean-up and tenant farmer's market over the course of the summer CSA.

OR

OPTION #2: Working one shift at the Prince George for the clean-up and tenant farmer's market and for the second shift contributing to the newsletter.

 

Volunteer Opportunities:

Recipes & Articles for our CSA Newsletter: Our Weekly CSA Newsletter is in need of contributions from our CSA members!  We welcome and appreciate any recipes and articles you wish to share. Two articles (centered around food justice, CSAs, personal food experiences, etc.) can be used to fulfill one volunteer shift, or four neatly presented recipes to do the same including pictures.  Please email all articles and recipes to our current CSA Newsletter compiler/editor, Tenant Services Assistant William Giron at wgiron@breakingground.org 

 

Tenant Farmer's Market / Clean-up (Evening of distribution, 6pm to 8pm) The Prince George orders additional shares to help provide fresh vegetables to the tenants in our building. During this shift, CSA members will help tenants shop for vegetables, answer questions about produce and sell vegetables. At the end of each CSA, any leftover vegetables are donated to City Harvest, a nonprofit that provides produce to food insecure populations. CSA members will help bag unused vegetables, breakdown tables and put away CSA supplies.

 

Please note, at least one shift needs to be spent volunteering at the Prince George in order to remain a member of the CSA.  A CSA operation can only be successful with equal contribution from all members and in order to provide the CSA, we need help from our members.
