Distribution During a Pandemic

Southside CSA is entering our 12th year. To say that we have never organized a season quite like this before is an understatement. Uncertain times! The vegetables & fruits are coming. However, our homebase — the beautiful backyard of the Woods — is not open due to the COVID19 bar & restaurant closures. Until the Woods is open again we will be operating distribution at an alternate location where we can be socially distant & we will be offering a delivery service.

***COVID 19 DISTRIBUTION PLAN***

Until quarantine orders are lifted for bars & restaurants we will be doing a socially-distant distribution from the BIBA event hall located at N8th & Kent and offering a delivery service. We will return to the backyard at the Woods as soon as the law allows. If there is enough interest/participation we will keep the BIBA distribution open for the entire season, even after we resume distributions in the backyard at the Woods. We built a cargo bike so the CSA will offer a delivery service. We are still working on the pricing and will post that ASAP

2020 Update – ‘Rona Season…

Sorry for the delay. COVID19 has delayed our launch as we reconfigure some things to match the changes we are experiencing. THE ONE THING NOT CHANGED is our farmers crop. They are planting and the season is proceeding. THE SHOW WILL GO ON!!

new plants

Right now we are updating all the info, determining our quarantine distribution plans, developing delivery options, and figuring out how to do sign-ups completely virtually. I started this CSA 11 years ago with a co-hort of co-organizers. For the past 5 years I have run it solo. I def need to go back to the old model and am recruiting help. It is a bit crazy to download the info from my brain into a seamless way for people to plug in and help. To that end, I have created a google form so that we can get the process started.

Here is a the form: HELP ORGANIZE FORM

AND here is a look at MIMOMEX FARM from March 12th

2020 COMING SOON

ok Winter break is over. Time to think about Spring & that means time to organize…
It is time to launch Southside CSA.
Technically way past time because our farmers like that mid-Winter cashflow. To that end, we will be speed launching this organizing effort. If you want to help organize the Southside CSA, please let me know. Looking for help with accounting, online sales, the blog, social media, weekly email, volunteer scheduling/reminder, etc.
I definitely need help answering email, setting up the email list and weekly emails. And designing the online ordering system. In the past many people have offered their services and it is definitely time for me to recruit more people to help make Southside CSA sustainable.
Anyways, I am back , working on setting up this season. Email for more info
