What is Snowflake CSA?
Snowflake CSA lets you share in our cool-weather harvests, using the Community Supported Agriculture model. Being a Veggie Box member allows you to enjoy local, seasonal, vegetables directly from Lynchburg Grows.
What's in a share?
Our goal is to make sure you have what you need to eat amazing salads and greens all winter long. Each week, you'll get 1 pound of salad and/or cooking greens, plus some winter vegetables (all great for salads). We'll also be working with local restaurants to bring you some special salad add-ons: house-made dressings and toppings from local chefs.
The greens we'll be growing include: mesclun mix lettuce, arugula, spinach, kale, collards, and Swiss chard. Winter vegetables that you can expect to see will include: radishes, turnips, cabbage, beets, and herbs.
How does it work?
Pay a fixed price and receive a selection of our best produce on a weekly basis. Items will vary, based on what we have harvested during any given week, but we'll always have options for you to choose from, so you can take home the veggies you like most.
What makes us different?
Lynchburg Grows is a non-profit farm that gives back to our town through produce donation, through our Veggie Van program, and through our support of Lynchburg’s amazing community of farmers and small businesses. Our employees with physical and/or mental disabilities do the bulk of the work on the farm, so when you eat our produce, you're not only getting fresh, local, food grown with all-organic methods, you're also making a difference in the lives of some of your neighbors with disabilities.
How do I sign-up?
Use the online sign-up form, which will be available on this page beginning November 27th. You may pay with a credit or debit card, cash, or check. Payment in full ($120) is due by the first pick-up date, Jan 10, 2018. We also offer special prices for our EBT customers. If you have any payment questions, contact Jennifer Porter: email@example.com
When/where do I pick up?
Pick up is at the farm every Wednesday from 11AM to 6PM. The address is 1339 Englewood St. Lynchburg, VA 24501.
What if I can’t pick up one week?
No worries! Tell a friend or family member to go pick up your share for you and let them enjoy it for a week! If you can't find someone, we'll donate your share to community organizations working to feed the hungry.
What if I want to do it, but I'm not sure I can afford it?
We'll have two work-study positions open for the Snowflake CSA season. Work-study members commit to work during the CSA pick-up time on Wednesdays, and get to take home a Snowflake CSA share in exchange. If you want to learn more about the farm and how a CSA works, and you can work Wednesdays, please contact Shelley Blades for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
