The season started on Thursday, June 8, and will run to Nov. 16.

The CSA Share - Terms of Agreement

As a member of the SICSA, I will receive a weekly share of organic vegetables consisting of approximately 8 to 9 items for the three-quarter share or 12 to 13 items each week for 24 weeks. I understand that the shares will vary in size and weight depending on the time of the season, with smaller shares likely in the early and late season.

I understand my registration is NOT complete until I have filled out the electronic registration form, which includes work scheduling, and I have finished paying for my share.


Notes:

  • You must work 5.5 hours per share during the season, helping to set up and break down the distribution, plus composting tasks. Work hours are 4:45 pm to 7:30 pm on Thursdays at the distribution center. Other volunteer opportunities are available--they include site coordinator, social media expert, membership coordinator, recruitment, publicity expert, special events organizer, farm-work party organizer, and fundraiser. Please note on the application form if you are interested in one of these alternative work opportunities. The membership coordinator will contact you.
  • Payment plans are available. See the choices on the registration form and on the FAQ, Payment (if you have questions use the contact form to get more more information).

Fruit shares are also available. If I purchase a fruit share, I will receive approximately 6-7 lbs of tree fruit (apples, pears, etc.) for 14 weeks. Fruit season will be from July to October, although there will be weeks when no fruit will be distributed. Fruit is not organic. There are NO fruit-only shares. Note: You don't have to sign up for the fruit share now--watch for an announcement when Farmer John has lined up his fruit vendors.

The SICSA offers FULL SHARES ONLY. If I wish to split my share it is my responsibility to find a share partner (the optional "Member 2" on the application form).

CSA members support their farmers by sharing in the risks of agriculture (poor weather, drought, disease, early frost, crop failure and so on) as well as the rewards (the bounty from a good season). Members generally get a wide variety of vegetables in plentiful amounts, but there are no guarantees. I understand that there is no guarantee on the exact amount or type of produce I will receive in my share. By participating in the SICSA, I am supporting our local farmer as well as more equitable food distribution, and I am helping to create a more environmentally just, economically fair and healthy society.

I will subscribe to the mailing list to receive weekly notices from the farmer, work reminders and site coordinator/worker information. Sign up using "Subscribe to SICSA mailing list" on the right side of this page. Please add marketing at statenislandcsa dot org to your address book.
