August/September 2018: Denison CSA

September 13 - November 1 (we will skip October 18th for fall break) The height of the Ohio growing season is September and October. This subscription will allow you to taste tomatoes, peppers, winter squash, sweet potatoes, and cool weather greens and root crops! The best time of year to join a CSA! 

You will pick-up your produce each week next to the Denison Community Gardens. You or a friend must be available to pick-up on Thursday between 4:00 - 5:30pm. You will select each item from available seasonal products. You won't know what you are getting but we include recipes and ideas. It will help you eat seasonally and learn how to pick-out the best vegetables and select the right one for you. 

“Just Right” – This size is our most popular and best for a single person or a family of two.

“A Little More” – Previously our medium will give you enough produce for a family of three or four depending on your normal vegetable consumption.

new for 2018

Community Fund

In our effort to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate in eating good and local food we are starting a Community Fund in 2018. This fund provides reduced cost shares for those on limited budgets who want to be a part of the CSA. We have taken this idea from our friends over at Village Acres Farm and Foodshed.

Please note that the Community Fund is only applicable to produce share and not add-ons.

Our CSA shareholders are generous and many contribute to our Community Fund in an effort to provide equitable distribution of our harvest. Donations made by our shareholders are matched by the farm. Over the next year we will have a farm fundraiser or two to ensure the Fund stays strong.

In an attempt to ensure we are able to honor as many requests as possible, we ask that you attempt to pay for at least half a share, either through a one-time payment or a payment plan. We are very willing to work with each person to arrive at a plan that will work, so please do let us know if you if you have ideas about making a plan that is workable within your budget.

If you are interested in receiving financial assistance from the Community Fund, please complete the form below then sign up online as usual.

If you need more time, please tell us your proposed payment schedule. Some people don’t actually need any money from the fund – they just want to be able to pay in six monthly payments.  That’s great – don’t hesitate to suggest payment plans.
