What is in a weekly share?

Each weekly share is about two pounds of vegetables, greens, and herbs that vary as the season progresses. Below are snapshots of two weekly shares from early summer (left) and early fall (right).

Early summer share as our first tomatoes begin to arrive but before we have a glut of them! Early fall shares include more root veggies, squashes, and apples.

(Note that the left picture includes optional flower (no longer available) and egg shares; the right includes optional eggs and fruit shares.)

Registration & Fees

Registration window for the summer season is open for a limited time – typically March through May. Prices below reflect the 2023 Summer season.

Box & Bag Fee

Windflower Farm will pre-box shares again this season – one box per shareholder..

To help the farm defray the cost of boxes and bags, a fee of $18 for full vegetable shares and $9 for half vegetable shares will be added to Bok Choy, Kohlrabi, and Radish plans. The fee is waived for Zucchini plan.

Box Reuse Plan.  A table will be available on site for members to transfer their vegetable items from the box into their own bags. By implementing this reuse plan our site’s box fee is half that of sites where new boxes are required each week.

Step 1: Select full or half share

The weekly share size is the same for full and half shares. The difference is the frequency of pick ups during the 22-week season.

  • Full share members pick up one box every week (22 total shares) and work two (2) volunteer shifts per season.
  • Half share members pick up one box every other week (11 total shares) and work one (1) volunteer shift per season.

Step 2: Select a Share Plan

We offer four share plans, based on household size and self-reported income. Bok Choy, Kohlrabi, and Radish plans can be paid up-front or in 3 installments.

Pricing tiers are structured so that neighbors subsidize each others’ shares.

RADISH and ZUCCHINI plans are priced below actual net cost, making healthy and sustainably grown food more accessible to the wider community. Limited number of spots available each season.

ZUCCHINI plan is reserved for households using SNAP benefits to pay for their shares.

Member Work Shifts

Being a member of a CSA means contributing to this volunteer-run effort. By purchasing a share, CSA members typically commit to 1-2 work shifts per season. (Two shifts for full-share members; one shift for half-share members.)

All work shifts are on Thursdays. A CSA core group member will be present during each shift to help address questions or concerns.


2:00-3:00 pm
  • Meet the farm truck at the distribution site
  • Unload full produce bins
  • Set up the site for evening distribution team

Note: This shift requires heavy lifting and stairs.


5:15-7:45 pm
  • Help to open, run, and close the distro site
  • Check in and assist members during pick-up
  • Break down and sweep the site

Note: This shift requires medium lifting and stairs.

Do I have to sign up for work shifts?

YASSSSSSSS. We are a 100% volunteer-run organization. Member work shifts are mandatory. Sign up early to get your preferred time slots. Members who don’t sign up for or complete work shift(s) will be denied future CSA registration.

What if something comes up or I need to change my shift?

If a shift you signed up for is 3+ weeks away, you can log back into the work shift page to cancel it and choose an alternate date.

If the shift is fewer than 3 weeks away, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to find someone to work it for you! Send your roommate, send your partner, send a Task Rabbiter (it’s super weird but it’s happened) — or swap shifts with another member through our Google Group.

DO NOT NO-SHOW ON YOUR WORK SHIFTS. It’s bad form, stressful for your fellow members, and will get you booted from the CSA. Reach out to our shift coordinator, Heather (, if you’re having trouble finding coverage.
