Windflower Farm CSA – Winter share planning

Dear Core Group Member,

We are planning to deliver WINTER SHARES again this year and hope you and your fellow core group members would like to be involved. We know it’s a big ask, and we’ll understand if you need a break! But, if you are ready, so are we!

Proposed DATES: November 17, December 15, January 12 and February 9.

Please let us know as soon as you can if you’d like to participate and, if so, whether these dates work for you. As a modest thanks, we’ll provide a complementary share to the site host and to key winter site coordinators.

FOUR weeks. Last year, we tossed out the idea of adding a fifth month, and reception to the idea was very positive. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough crop going into storage for that. We’ll revisit the question next year, and stick with four deliveries this year.

PLASTIC bags. We are aware of the problem with too many plastic bags in the world and fully intend to reduce the number we use. We’ll pack loose where we can, and use paper bags where we need packaging. Our GOAL will be to use zero plastic bags, but, because we are not yet sure that we can, we’ll promise to use no more than one plastic bag per month.

We’ll circulate a draft Wufoo sign up form shortly using last year’s distribution addresses and timing to start. But to finalize the form we’ll need some information from you:

1. Does your CSA intend to participate?

2. Do the proposed dates work for your site?

3. What is the address (if new) of your delivery location?

4. What is the name (and contact information, if new) of your distribution host?

5. What else do we need to know?

Please share this with any and all relevant parties.

Thank you for all you do for us!

Ted and Jan, Windflower Farm
