2017 FALL / WINTER BI-WEEKLY FARM SHARE
SOLD OUT FOR THE SEASON
YOU CAN STILL SIGN UP FOR THE 'NON COMMITTAL' OPTION TO GET UPDATES WHEN EXCESS BOXES ARE AVAILABLE
7 total vegetable shares are provided every other week over a three month period, with a DOUBLE VALUE Share (this includes the value of 2 shares in one box) on 11/21/17 (for the Tuesday pick-up, note this isn’t a normal bi-weekly Tuesday) and 11/17/17 (for the Friday pick-up) just in time for a bountiful Thanksgiving meal.
In order to maintain and improve the health of the soil a diverse array of vegetables and cover crops are planted and rotated at Farm N’ Wild Wellspring to ensure that nutrients are returned to the soil and pest pressure and nutrient depletion is kept to a minimum. This means your support as a farm share member allows me to grow and find a healthy home and happy belly for ALL of the veggies, not just the ones we want to pick and choose at a market. As a farm share member you help me stay motivated during the rush of the fall harvest that overlaps with fall plantings and keeps me warm on those cold winter harvest days. Your support and my promise to provide you with healthy vegetables is what keeps me going and inspires me to work harder every day to become a better farmer.
Choose what you feel you can afford for a bi-weekly box of veggies from $32-$40, and multiply that number by 7 shares. The totals range from $225 – $275
The sliding scale is simply a financial choice and doesn’t affect the share — that is, the size of each share (a value of $35-$45 average for each share — this reflects 10-15% off of current Farmers Market retail values) remains the same no matter what you choose to pay!
Please do not let cost prohibit your participation:
in addition to the sliding scale, feel free to contact me to discuss a payment plan.
Examples of fall vegetables, that will vary with availability and weather: Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplant, Carrots, Beets, Radish, Celeriac, Celery, Rutabagas, Turnips, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Parsnip, Onions, Garlic, Kale, Chard, Spinach, Bok Choi, Mustard Greens, Mache, Winter Squash, Cabbage, Radicchio, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Kohlrabi.
FOR EVERY 3 SHARES SOLD, ONE WILL BE DONATED TO MEMBERS OF THE OUT BOULDER YOUNG ADULT COOKING GROUP. YOUR SUPPORT ENABLES ME TO CONTINUE TO DONATE FOOD and TIME TO THIS GROUPS COOKING ENDEAVORS.
