Use this posting as a bulletin board if you are looking to split a share with someone at the Yorkville CSA.  The best way to split shares is to alternate weeks.

The Yorkville CSA is completing its renewal process for existing members and will start taking new memberships from the wait list in about a week.  To put your name on the wait list visit the Stoneledge Farm CSA Registration page.   The farm will contact you via email about the specific date registration opens.

Some folks may be interested in getting flowers every 2 weeks instead of every week. Add a comment here if you are a Yorkville CSA member who would like to find a partner to alternate weeks on a flower share.

Due to an unfortunate glitch, too many half shares were sold for the Yorkville site.   If you have signed up for  half share and would like to alternate weeks with a partner, please post up a comment here.  Alternating weeks means you would pick up a full share every other week instead of picking up a half share every week.

One full share is cheaper than two half shares.  Anyone who currently has a half share and agrees to alternate weeks with a partner will get a $37.50 refund.

We have a great crew of regular volunteers this year at the Yorkville site.  With vacations coming up, we’ll need to supplement and are looking for members to step forward in July.  A description of the work on each shift is provided below.  If you are able to commit to a date in July, please leave a comment with the date and shift.  The dates are 7/7, 7/14, 7/21, 7/28.  We will have experienced volunteers helping with opening and closing so don’t worry about being stuck alone without any support.
