You may have heard of a vegetable box or farm share before. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and it means community members get together to invest in a farm during the winter or early Spring and then when the harvest season rolls out, they pick up a weekly package of vegetables at a designated pick-up location.
Pickup at Darien Library
In 2020, Darien Library will once again be the pickup location for Stoneledge Farm's CSA. The farm share pickup will be every Wednesday evening from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. running from June 3rd until November 11th.
To take part, sign up for a vegetable share. Then you can add a fruit, mushroom, and/or coffee share to your order too.
Costs for a Farm Share
The vegetables are grown locally so they are fresher than anything you'll find in a grocery store, and incredibly varied.

Once your partner is added and they accept (confirmation is sent to them via email), you can place your CSA share orders.
Volunteer for Two Hours
As a member of the CSA, you will be asked to complete two hours of volunteer work during the season. Volunteers do things like check people in when they pick up their share, make sure the vegetables are replenished, or move boxes.
