Distro 101

Screen Shot 2018-05-29 at 12.12.13 PMProspect Park CSA members pick up shares between 5:30–8:15 p.m. every Tuesday, from early June through late October or early November at Crow Hill Cross Fit (1010 Dean Street, between Franklin and Classon Aves).

Here’s “Distro 101,” or everything you need to know about picking up your CSA share:

  • Please bring your own bags.
  • Sign in at the front table; a volunteer will confirm your shares.
  • Read the signs. Watch out for either/or choices and be accurate when weighing and counting, so that someone arriving later doesn’t get shorted! Please DO NOT take “extra” shares you haven’t purchased (eggs, fruit, flowers). (Please DO make a mental note to sign up for that awesomeness next season, instead!)
  • We can’t hold shares or arrange pick-ups outside distro hours. If you can’t get there between 5:30-8:15 p.m., ask a friend to pick up for you or reach out to other members through the PPkCSA Google Group.
      • IMPORTANT: If you send someone to pick up for you, make sure they bring bags and know which shares you purchase (for example, “veggies and eggs, but NO fruit or flowers”). Some of our biggest snafus result from non-members picking up for friends who roll up and treat the CSA like a free version of Whole Foods. So please: do your fellow CSA members a solid and educate your clique before you send them in your stead!

  • At 8:15 p.m. all unclaimed items are collected by a local food pantry.
  • Thanks for being part of the CSA and supporting small, sustainable farming! Now go home and cook yourself a delicious meal!
