The CAC Beardsley Community Farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) WorkShare program allows individuals to earn food by volunteering at the farm. We are looking for enthusiastic and open-minded applicants that wish to supplement their weekly groceries with fresh produce. CSA members will be helping out with everything and anything that needs to be done in the WorkShare Gardens. Such duties include: harvesting, washing produce, watering, packaging produce for donations/CSA boxes, weeding, transplanting, pest prevention, etc. No previous gardening experience is required, but it is welcomed!
By volunteering for four hours, participants earn a full box of food (a share). CSA members may earn a share weekly, biweekly, or monthly depending upon the amount of volunteering per week that their schedules allow. However, in order to maintain membership, CSA members must volunteer for a minimum of four hours a month.
We are now accepting applications for 2016 WorkShare slots! This year we will be offering ten CSA shares, and applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis. The program will last 30 weeks, from May 4th until November 20th, 2016. Available hours are Monday-Friday from 9:30 AM - 2:30 PM. All applicants must be 18 years or older and WorkShare applications are limited to one per household, but all household members may contribute hours towards the share. To apply, please fill out this form and send it back to us.
Update: WorkShare CSA is currently full, but please email us if you are interested in being added to the waiting list!
