What's a Farm Share?
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 2022, 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 9th until November 17th (24 weeks).
Volunteers will distribute the food to CSA members during pick-up. The veggies and shares will be boxed up in reusable waxy coated boxes.
To take part, sign up for a vegetable share. Then you can add a fruit, mushroom, and/or coffee share to your order, too.
Please contact Amande Demaio, Adult Programmer, email@example.com.
Farm Share Information
The vegetables are grown locally so they are fresher than anything you'll find in a grocery store and incredibly varied.
Visit Stoneledge Farm for more information.
Under the My Account tab, you are able to update your password and check to make sure all information looks correct, especially for your CSA location.
There is the option to split a share. When you sign up and add the share to your cart, provide your share partner's name, phone number, and email address.
To Add a Share Partner
- Log into your member account.
- Under the My Account tab, you will see the "Add a Share Partner" button on the bottom right.
- Once your partner is added and they accept (confirmation is sent to them via email), you can place your CSA share orders.
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.
