Size

The GSF farmshare is enough vegetables for 1-4 people, depending how many meals they eat at home. For example, a single person who eats at least 5 meals a week prepared at home can usually use all the vegetables in the bag each week. A family of 4, who eat 2 meals at home, can use the contents of the bag in a week. The share isn’t intended to supply all the vegetables for a family who regularly eat most of their meals at home, but will be a great start!

Schedule

The 2021-2022 CSA Season has 18 scheduled pick ups and begins the first full week of October 2021 (Oct. 6th and 7th), and goes through mid April 2021. The October, November, and December pick ups will be weekly, skipping Thanksgiving week and going until December 15th/16th. The January, February, March and April pick ups will be every other week beginning January 5th/6th and going until April 13th/14th. Inclimate weather could change the pick up schedule.

Wednesday pick ups are in Chapel Hill at Church of the Holy Family at 200 Hayes Rd. The bags will be delivered to the screened porch of the Parish House at 4:30 pm and members can swing by any time to get their bags.

Pay It Forward Fund

We have reserved 25% of the CSA shares for members who receive a subsidy. These members will pay $10 weekly, and can use SNAP/EBT benefits if they desire.

We welcome donations by check or credit/debit card to our Pay It Forward Fund to help subsidize our neighbors with fewer financial resources. Thanks!
