You will receive a follow-up email once registration for extras, such as fruit and eggs, is open. You will also receive information about signing up for 2-3 distribution shifts to fulfill your work requirement.
Please understand that part of the economic mission of CSA is to support the efforts of local farmers, and a big part of that support is getting cash into the farmers' hands during the off-season, to allow for seed purchases and farm maintenance at a time when no other income is coming in.
To that end, CSA members are required to pay for the entire season before distributions begin in June. In fact, we prefer that you pay for your entire membership right away. Since that's not always so easy to do, installment payment plans are available; after completing this membership agreement, your confirmation email will include your personal payment options. If payments are not received by established deadlines, membership may be subject to late fees or cancellation.
You will be able to pay by check, or online with PayPal or credit card for a 3% fee.
Finally, do note that there is a work requirement for this CSA. As an all-volunteer operation, Grand Street CSA relies on the work-contribution of members in order to function. Every member is expected to sign up for at least two distribution shifts during the season. The total number of required shifts (2 or 3) will be determined after the registration period has closed and is dependent on the total number of members for the coming season. We are using a separate service called VolunteerSpot to let you pick your own shifts. Your confirmation email will also include instructions for fulfilling this requirement.
