shares still available for the williamsburg CSA

19 May

here is an email i got from the williamsburg csa
csa=community supported agriculture.
so you can still sign up for shares!

There is still time to join the Williamsburg CSA for the 2007 growing season.
[so yeah, tell your friends, spread the word…we are still accepting members]

All share types still available {Veggie, Fruit, Egg , & Flower}
There is still time to upgrade from half to full shares or add a flower or egg share.
(Hint hint: you can never get enough vegetables or fruit, the eggs are amazing; and those flowers are pesticide-free and quite a steal at 7 dollars for a pollution free bouquet)

Come on out to any of these sign up events:
(Remember…balances are due by the last sign up, May 31st)
Feel free to make payment in person @ any of the sign up events;
[it speeds up the process and makes the whole end of season accounting scenario so much easier and streamlined]

This is the last email blast to remind people to sign up.
From here on out, we will only be sending out emails to members.
Right now, our Member email list is 85% complete but we are working on getting everyone added.
(sorry guys, but i must float the disclaimer…the core group is all volunteers who organize the CSA in our “free” time for “fun”.
we try our hardest, but we have hundreds of emails to enter so it takes time)

Everyone who has signed up (and gave us their email) should receive a confirmation email by Sunday June 3rd.
This email will explain pickup & assign half shares to A or B week schedules.
(if you do not receive an email by Sun June 3rd, please email williamsburgcsa@gmail.com with your membership #)

Because we are such a big CSA and we have a lot of big goals for our CSA,
we would like to invite anyone who is interested to join the Core Group.
We will be having monthly meetings (the first sunday of every month) rotating between Williamsburg & Greenpoint
Email williamsburgcsa@gmail.com with the subject line Core Group for more info.
.
Our first monthly meeting will be Sunday June 3 at 11:00 in Greenpoint near McGolrick Park.
(RSVP for address. Not to be private or anything, but this email is going out to a big group including non-members so we don’t want to post someones house address. thanks for understanding)

At this meeting, we will be going over the 2007 #s, the low income share program, the “leftover” share food donation, weekly newsletter emails, the blog, monthly events, trips to the farm, and all the special projects like fundraisers and murals and lots of other exciting creative things. There is so much to do and not enough of us to do it…so, if you would like to get more involved in local sustainable food systems, then come and join us!!
(Everyone is welcome; all people and opinions are respected; their is no hierarchy–newbies as well as old timers are encouraged to get involved!)
