What if I go on vacation?

You must be able to pick up your share or make arrangements for your share to be picked up for you during the listed pick-up times. The CSA is not responsible for food that is not picked up during these hours, and we are unable to donate the food if it is not picked up.

Core Committee:

Help lead and chart the future direction of the Riverdale CSA by participating as a member of the Core Committee. The Core Committee facilitates all the “on-site” tasks of the CSA such as managing pick-up and organizing volunteers. The Core Committee also serves as a way for members to give feedback and shape the nature of our particular Hawthorne Valley CSA relationship as well as our relationship with the other farms. Joining and participating in this group also fulfills the work shift requirement.

Can I split a share?

For the winter season, the share is fixed; if you want to split it, you would do so informally on your own.

Does the CSA/Hawthorne Valley Farm accept the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT)/Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP)?

Not at this time. However, we and all the farms believe that fresh, sustainably grown food is a vital part of creating healthy people, healthy communities and ultimately a healthy society. Lewis Waite Farm hopes to have EBT/SNAP available for their pre-orders in the near future.
