Membership Structure and CSA Info

A brochure with the current membership structure has been attached to this message in pdf format. For those unable to view it but would like to see it,youcanreply to this message with your address and we'll be happy to mail you a brochure.

There are 3 tiers of membership;
(keep in mind our priceshave remained the samefrom last year, but due to rising fuel pricesit is anticipated that veggies will costmore in grocery stores this year).

$450 Working Season Share - requires 4 hours per month Farm work - total 24 hours May-Oct

This breaks down to about $17.00 per week to receive Erda's fresh seasonal produce for the entire growing season

$550 Regular Season share - no work requirement

That breaks down to roughly $21.00 a week to feed 4-6 people 8-12 different fresh, seasonal herbs, veggies and fruits each week of the growing season May-October.

Consider splitting a share with a friend or two!

Work Trade -SOLD OUT

A full-work trade is 4 hours of labor a week in exchange for a share. (Please call the Farm Phone to find out about available work trade positions 610-1538).
