More Logistics: Workshifts!

All 2013 members should have received an email on May 13th with sign up info for your required work shifts this season. (Full-share members have 2 shifts, half-share members just have 1).

We’ve had an overwhelming response so far! You guys are amazing— all shifts for June and July are accounted for and August and September are filling up fast. Sign up soon to make sure you get your pick of dates and times! 

Once you sign up, please mark your calendars, plan ahead, and do everything you can to keep your appointment(s).

While we hope everyone will honor their commitments, we understand that circumstances arise for which we cannot plan. If this is the case, please follow the protocol below AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

What to do if you can’t make your shift

  • Swap your Shift: Send a message to the Prospect Park CSA Google Group to see if anyone will trade shifts with you. Once you find someone to swap with you, please go to volunteer spot to make the appropriate changes to the work shift schedule so we know who to expect at each shift. 
  • Ask a Friend: If you can’t find another member with whom to swap shifts, then you should ask your partner, friend, neighbor, roommate, sister, uncle, dog walker, person picking up your share, etc. to work your shift for you. It is your responsibility.
  • Let Us Know: If, after you have attempted to swap your shift, and exhausted all other possibilities, you should email Tim at We will try our best to have your shift covered. You will then be responsible for making up your shift later in the season.

Remember: The CSA depends on your participation. Missing your shift means that you are putting a burden on other CSA members and not holding up your end of the bargain. We understand that life can be unpredictable and things come up. So please consider the time that you have committed to your workshift as an important part of your schedule and plan accordingly.

That being said, should you miss your shift entirely without trying to find coverage and/or letting us know, you will not be allowed to join this CSA in the future.
