Take a look at what members get every week by checking our our instagram: @prospectparkcsa

Vegetable Shares

When you purchase a full vegetable share, you receive an assortment of veggies once a week for 22 weeks. You can also purchase a half-share, which means you pick up one full share of vegetables every other week throughout the 22 week season (i.e., 11 full weeks of vegetables). For an idea of variety and quantity in the share, please review our sharelists from a past season here.

We have three price tiers, following the Community Supported Agriculture model of neighbors subsidizing each others’ shares. Tiers A and B include a $6 administrative fee, which covers the cost of membership in Just Food, a non-profit organization which provides resources to CSAs and other community food initiatives. The remainder of the admin fee ($1) our core group uses to buy some basic materials and as a way to subsidize fun activities we offer throughout the year.

  • Plan A full share: $570, Plan A half share: $288
  • Plan B full share: $504, Plan B half share: $255
  • Plan C full share: $306, Plan C half share: $156
  • SNAP full share: $156, SNAP half share: $78 (Note: this option is only available for those using SNAP benefits to pay for their share)

Select Plan A if your combined household income is greater than $80,000/year, or if you think you can afford it. By choosing a Plan A share you are helping to subsidize our lower income neighbors, bringing real, healthy food access to more people and ensuring that the “community” aspect of Community Supported Agriculture rings true.

Select Plan B if your household earnings are $40,000 – $80,000/year, or if you feel that is the level you can afford.

Select Plan C if your household earnings are less than $40,000, or if you feel that is the level you can afford.

Select SNAP if you will be using SNAP benefits to pay for your share.

Fruit shares

From the farm: 20 weeks of fruits produced with minimal inputs by local farmers. Windflower Farm grows small quantities of organic strawberries and raspberries. To round out the share they partner with local growers to supply fresh, minimally treated (non-organic) fruit. Fruit shares begin in the early summer with strawberries, cherries, blueberries and raspberries, progress in mid-summer to include peaches, plums, nectarines, and apricots, and conclude in the fall with assorted apples, pears, and cider.

  • Fruit: $154 (20 Distributions)

Flower shares

From the farm: 10 weeks of fresh cut flowers grown organically at Windflower Farm. Flowers vary by the season but have included spice-scented stock, showy sunflowers, Bells of Ireland, campanula, Asiatic lilies, long-lasting lisianthus, China asters, and cockscombs (or “brain flowers” as one young CSA member calls them). Flowers arrive in bouquets or bunches, and packed in a floral sleeve for safe travel.

  • Flowers: $128 (10 Distributions)

Egg shares

22 weeks of brown eggs from free-range chickens grown by Windflower Farm neighbor Davis Family Farm. Their hens are truly pastured and their eggs are as nutritional and good-for-you as eggs can be.

  • 2 dozen/week: $252 (22 distributions)
  • 1 dozen/week: $126 (22 distributions)
  • 1/2 dozen/week: $63 (22 distributions)

Pickup Location

Members will be able to pick up their shares on Tuesdays beginning June 6th at 5:30pm – 8:15pm, at Fountain Studios, 604 Grand Ave., between St Marks Ave. and Bergen St. (Google Map). Please note that we cannot hold shares or arrange pick-ups outside of the scheduled window of 5:30-8:15 PM on Tuesdays. At 8:15 PM any remaining produce will be donated to a local food pantry. You can designate a friend or neighbor to pick up for you if you are unable, but please consider whether regular weekly pick-up is feasible for you before registering.

Member Work Shift Requirement

By joining, all CSA members agree to contribute to this volunteer-led effort by working at our distribution location once or twice during the season. All work shifts will take place on Tuesdays, beginning June 6th. There will be an afternoon shift (1:30-2:30pm) and two evening shifts (5:15-6:45pm, 6:45pm-8:30pm). Full-share members will work 2 shifts throughout the season. Half-share members will work 1 shift.
