Spring/Summer 2017 Town of Chapel Hill CSA

The Wellness Committee is pleased to announce the Spring/Summer Town of Chapel Hill’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program
to begin Tuesday, April 11, 2017 and invites you to be a member!

 

What is the Town’s CSA Program?Spring_Summer CSA 2017
The program is a partnership between a local farm and Town employees: members invest in the farm at the beginning of the season and are supplied with weekly boxes of food delivered to a town facility.

What Farm will we use this year?
Brinkley Farms was selected as this year’s CSA for the third year in a row. Brinkley Farms offers a tremendous variety of produce, as well as meat, eggs, and grain products. They are proud to offer the opportunity for CSA participants to electronically select the items in their boxes allowing you to customize your order. For more information about the farm, visit: www.brinkleyfarms.com

How do I sign up?
Contact Liska Lackey at llackey@email.unc.edu or 919-968-2796. She will provide you with the necessary instructions.

When is the deadline to join?
You can join at any time. Because the CSA begins on April 11, if you join after that date your fee will be prorated for any weeks you miss. We need at least 20 participants by April 1st.

How long does the program last?
The program will last for 16 weeks.

How much does the CSA cost?
Brinkley Farms offers 3 “Shares”:
An “Individual Share” is perfect for one or two people and is $240 ($15/wk).
A “Couple Share” is plenty for 2 or 3 people and is $320 ($20/wk).
A “Family Share” is great for 4 or more people and is $400 ($25/wk).

Can I “split” a share with someone?
Yes, several employees have partnered with another employee and it worked well for them to split a share.

What town facility will be used for the CSA pick-up?
CSA pick-up will be in the Town Wellness Clinic which is located in the basement of the Town Housing Office at 317 Caldwell Street.
