JustinWe are almost ready to take sign-ups for our Spring and Summer CSA’s.   I will let you know when you can sign up.  Since the type of produce varies so much from Spring to Summer, we have broken the time up into two seasons instead of one long one this year.  (We had planned on a Winter season, but the weather did NOT cooperate).  You can choose Spring, Summer, or both.  Use the link at the bottom of the page to see what you can expect from each season.

Right now, I am finalizing the Delivery Locations.  Below is a map of the ones I have so far.  If you would be interested in hosting a Delivery Location at your home, business, church or ?, please reply to this email.  Of, if you know a business that might be interested, please send me that information also.  We have a few businesses right now.  The Life House in Rockwall was the first.  They are a local coffee house that uses local, organic products.  Check them out if you are in the area, you will be in for a treat.  Local Yocal in McKinney is a farmer owned, full service butcher shop and local goods market.  The Life House and Local Yocal were both delivery locations last year and will continue this year.  We also have one new one, a marketing and printing firm in Irving, owned by one of our customers, that has offered to host a location.

If you have a group that would be interested (such as a church or mother’s group) I can set up a “private” group where only your members can join.  I can also do this for offices that want to offer this for their employees only.  You must have at least 5 members to qualify.

If you are willing to be a delivery location for other people to join, I will add your location to the map for others to choose.  You do NOT have to find members yourself Spinach(though you are encouraged to tell your friends and neighbors!)  For any given location, we must have at least 5 members before the deliveries begin in order for the group to receive deliveries.

If anyone signs up and chooses a group that does not make, and there is not another location that will work for them, they will be refunded their deposit.

At any Delivery Location where there are at least 10 members, the host will receive a free share.

On this map, the gray marker is a tentative location, the white ones are for sure.  We could really use some other locations, particularly from Coppell, over to Plano, down into Dallas, and up through Irving.  Anywhere there is a large “gap” actually.  If you have any questions about how hosting works, please reply to this email.  I’ll be happy to answer your questions.

We plan to do deliveries on Thursday and Friday, but do not know which stops will be on which day yet.

When products are delivered, they are packaged and labeled.  Hosts do not sort anything and they do not handle payments.  The whole process can be quite hands-off.
