2014 CSA Registration Form

Produce is available weekly, June through October, for approximately 20 weeks, depending on fall frosts. Pick up will be at the Youth Garden Project on Tuesday from 3:00 to 8:00PM. Any produce not picked up on Tuesdays will be donated to local organizations or sold at the Moab Farmers’Market to benefit the Youth Garden Project, unless arrangements are made in advance. The produce that is included in your weekly share is based on what is available in the garden and orchard at the time of harvest. The Youth Garden Project supports a total of 15 shares. Vegetables are planted throughout the Garden at the beginning of the season to accommodate CSA needs and numbers. On the YGP site, soil, planting, and plant maintenance is carefully managed to maximize growing and overall quality of produce. Payment is due via credit card, check, or cash before Registration is considered complete.
    A single share is typically intended for 1-2 people. A double share is typically intended for 3-4 people or for anyone wanting to preserve a portion of their share.

The Youth Garden Project CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to the Youth Garden Project so that the CSA Garden becomes the community’s farm. Members share in the risks of farming, including poor harvests due to unfavorable weather and pests, but also share in the bounty of the garden throughout the growing season!

Is a CSA right for me? Being a part of a CSA is great way to get connected to local foods and your grower, but sometimes it’s not for everyone. Please take a look below and ask yourself if a CSA is right for you before signing up.

You are probably a great CSA candidate if…

  • You or your family have the time to cook, enjoy cooking, and like to incorporate lots of fresh produce into your food choices.
  • In your cooking you are willing to experiment with ingredients you have never used before or don’t use often.
  • You are okay with getting something in your weekly share you don’t love from time to time.
  • You are willing to eat seasonally and understand that this is what being part of a CSA means (a CSA will not provide the same selection a grocery store does). For example, tomatoes won’t be ready in early June, and it will be too hot for an abundance of lettuce mix and spinach in July.
  • You understand that what is provided in the weekly share is based on the garden’s production.
  • You are able to make the scheduled weekly pick-up time (Tuesdays from 3-8pm at the Youth Garden Project)

You are probably not the best CSA candidate if…

  • There are two or more common vegetables you don’t like.
  • You want to know exactly what will be in your share each week.
  • You would prefer to stick to what you know and not experiment with new vegetables or fruits.
  • You expect to love everything included in every share or expect certain quantities of the produce you do like.
  • Your schedule does not permit you to prepare foods using garden fresh ingredients.
  • You know in advance that you cannot make the scheduled weekly pick-up time.

2014 Membership Share Prices:

$300.00 for one share: A single share is designed for 1-2

$575.00 for two shares: A double share is for a 3-4

 

Members are always welcome to volunteer to have an increased connection to growing their food.  To find out the best times to volunteer, call the garden at 259-2326.
