Would you like to sign up for the Southside CSA for the 2015 Harvest season?
You will choose your share types:
You will choose your size: Whole or half shares Right now the sign ups for A week are closed. We are severely lopsided and need to boost up B week. However, if you are looking to do a full veg + alternating half shares of orchard & berry, let us know and we will work something out.
You will choose your volunteer shifts.
This year the amount has been reduced from 10 to six hours – each share family will do one distribution shift and 1 community shift. You will pick your distribution shift and the type of community shift you want. Once we receive the form, we will contact you within a few days, clarifying any questions, totaling the balance, and choose community shift dates. Once volunteer shifts are penciled into the calendar, we will fill out a receipt, scan and email it to you with your share and volunteer calendar as well as the 2015 Membership agreement. Seems like it could be slightly complicated but we hope it will be easy and smooth….
If you have questions about share sizes, check out the tag – WEEKLY SHARE AMOUNTS. We record the shares each week and post them to the blog so there is an official record of our past seasons. Actually, tons of info on the blog and lots of pictures on the facebook page

Lots of info on the blog about our shares, our packages, our farmers, and our CSA. Don’t forget to check out our great add-ons – Chicken Shares, Meat Shares, Maple Shares, and Beer Club Membership….
