We’re in such good spirits after the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center’s talent show this weekend! It’s giving us wind for our sails as we slide into the final month or so before the distribution season begins Thursday, June 13th!
By the way, we’ve extended the deadline for purchasing Windflower Farm shares through the Central Brooklyn CSA. The deadline to submit your membership form and 10% deposit is now April 30th. The deadline to submit your full payment for your shares is now May 16th.
We hope the deadline extension is a relief to everyone!
IMPORTANT REMINDER: We are a volunteer-run organization, and we need you! There are a number of key core group roles open, and we would love to have you join us in organizing and running the CSA. If you’re interested, leave a comment or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For examples of core group roles, see below:
Outreach Coordinator(s): The outreach coordinators will assist in recruiting new members, handling publicity, answering phone and mail queries, and working on these projects during the off season. Multiple people can be involved in this effort.
Newsletter Editor(s): The newsletter editor will collaborate with the core group, farmer, and members to get newsletter material. This should be compiled, formatted, and edited at least two times a month, ideally every week. This could be a revolving responsibility among several members.
Volunteer Coordinator: This person is responsible for setting up and maintaining the weekly schedule for members to volunteer at the distribution site and contacting the volunteers each week to confirm shifts.
Distribution Site Coordinators: This person oversees the weekly veggie distributions, including being onsite when the farmer unloads the truck and making sure the distribution site is cleaned up at the end of each distribution. This role should also be a revolving responsibility among 2 or 3 members.
