The Joshua Farm’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program is back! After careful consideration and reflection, we have decided to continue our CSA in 2014. We will be reducing the number of shares available this season so that we can focus on offering the best CSA possible and developing other aspects of the farm enterprise.
25 shares will be available. The cost per share is $500 and a share will run for 20 weeks from early June through mid-October (The exact start date will depend on weather and crop availability). CSA shares will be available for pickup on the farm (213 S. 18th Street) Wednesdays from 4-7pm.
Additionally, 5 work shares will be available. Work shares involve the commitment of 40 hours to the Joshua Farm throughout the growing season. This time can be split between those receiving the share. Please indicate in your email that you would like a work share.
CSA slots will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. Please respond via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservation requests should include the following:
1. Primary contact name
3. Phone number
A CSA share is only guaranteed once full payment is received and processed. Payments should be sent to our mailing address: 1442 Market Street, Harrisburg PA 17103. Checks should be made out to “The Joshua Farm.” Cash payments are acceptable, but should be delivered in-person to the above address. If payment is not received by April 25, your slot will be made available to someone else.
For those who are unable to secure a CSA share, we will be offering 15 “Flex Accounts” for $200. Flex Accounts give you a starting balance that can be spent throughout the season at our Strawberry Square and Joshua Farm on-farm market. In exchange for your commitment to the Joshua Farm, we will add an additional 5% to your starting balance! This is a great choice for those who primarily shop at Strawberry Square or aren’t sure if a CSA is right for them.
Your participation in the CSA and Flex programs help the Joshua Farm run and we are grateful for your support!
