join us as a working share member!
We love involving members more deeply in the rhythms of food production by offering Working Share Memberships. Throughout the farm season, you offer your willing hands and enthusiasm, and we offer a reduced price on your CSA share and a community meal after your work shift.
LEND YOUR HANDS. REDUCE THE COST OF YOUR SHARE. PARTICIPATE MORE FULLY IN THE LIFE OF your community-supported FARM.
Working Share shifts are Mondays and/or Wednesdays from 8 a.m.-11 a.m., followed by a farm lunch for all. The Working Share season runs from April through October (more shifts available June-September), and you will sign up for shifts of your choosing at the beginning of the season.
Choose your number of shifts:
15 shifts: $450 off your CSA share
10 shifts: $300 off your CSA share
5 shifts: $150 off your CSA share
*Note that any share size can choose 5, 10, or 15 shifts. If you are a half-share member who would like to work 15 shifts, you can apply your extra credit towards a November/December CSA share.
What is required to be a working share member?
Enthusiasm, a commitment to showing up for your shifts, and the ability to complete tiring physical work for three hours in any weather conditions.
Working Share members will be doing field work, which will inevitably be a lot of weeding, so please be prepared for that!
If two adults from your household want to come and work, some or all of the time, that's great and will count as two shifts fulfilled. But if you're interested in bringing guests (friends, neighbors, etc), they are always welcome; however it will still just count as one shift, because we're aiming for consistency and not having to train new folks each time.
Please note that we expect you to be able to work for the full three hours, so we discourage bringing kids under the age of 12 unless you're sure they can entertain themselves and not detract from your work time. Please be in touch if you have questions about this guideline.
