Winter CSA 2017-2018

Winter CSA starts Saturday, November 18. Distribution will be at Habana Outpost from 9 to 10 am. Winter distributions are different from summer ones: the vegetables arrive already boxed and members don’t have to work a shift. There are six winter distributions: November 18, December 2, December 16, January 6, January 20, and February 3.

CSA Start Date

GHCSA will begin distribution on June 10, 2017. This season’s start date has been pushed back by a week due to the cold spring we’ve been having this year. If you signed up to work a CSA shift on June 3, please check your email for information on how to reschedule.

New Season Signups!

It’s CSA sign up time! If you’re an existing member, keep an eye out for an email with a link to the sign up form, arriving in your inbox in the next few days. And if you’re not yet a member, come find us at one of three in-person sign up events. Here are the dates: April 2, April 8, and April 15. We’ll have more details on times and locations as we get closer to the dates.

Happy 2016 Season!

The summer 2016 season kicks off this Saturday, June 4, at 8.45 am! Yes, we have a new distribution time: 8.45 to 10.30 am. We are starting 15 minutes earlier and closing half an hour earlier. We will be offering the usual veggies and fruit, plus eggs, honey, coffee, dairy, and nuts. Beef distribution starts in July, and heirloom tomatoes will be distributed later in the season as well. See you at Habana!
