CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Our flower CSA works the same way as popular vegetable CSAs: A member joins in winter/early spring before the growing season starts and then members receive a weekly bucket of flowers for 10 weeks with an option to extend.  Early payment has a number of benefits for our program: We get to spend time marketing flowers early in the year, so we can focus on growing and training later. It helps with cash flow for our business. It gives you an opportunity to get to know the people who grow the flowers you enjoy. All flowers are grown locally at the Groundswell Incubator Farm. Flowers are cut and packed the same day as the CSA delivery.

What’s in a share?  Each week you will receive a bucket overflowing with fresh-picked, locally grown flowers.  Each bucket includes focal flowers, textural elements, grasses, and greenery, perfect for several small bouquets or one strong statement.  Shares begin about the last week of June/first week of July and can continue until frost—(we reserve the right for a week of flexibility due to the North Eastern weather!)  I will send an email a week prior to the start of the CSA.  NOTE:  There will be no CSA share delivery the weeks of August 5 or September 2. 

Sign up by purchasing your share online through our website or by contacting glenr@aboutchallenge.org to arrange payment. Please indicate your choice from among the list of possible drop off/pick up sites.  You can renew for 5 weeks after your share has expired.
