Who are we?
Our collective is an incorporated worker co-operative with a mission to better ourselves and our community. Being a co-op means that our business will be voluntary, open, democratic, and engaged in community participation and education.
The founding members are Jarrett Man, Susanna Harro, Amanda Barnett, and Dave DiLorenzo. We have joined up with the Valley Alliance of Worker Cooperatives (VAWC), a local association of cooperatively-run businesses in the Pioneer Valley of Western MA, and they're helping us get started on this new path. We are one of the first farms in MA and in the country to formally incorporate as a co-op. We are very excited about these new developments, and we hope you are too!
What this means for your share:
If you currently have a 2013 Kitchen Garden share, it will continue exactly as it has, and any remaining payments should be made to the Kitchen Garden. 2013-2014 Winter Shares (veggie and egg) will be through Stone Soup, as well as 2014 summer shares (veggie, egg, and fruit). You can sign up right here on this website, on the CSA shares page. This includes all CSA pickup sites: The Non Profit Center in Boston, the Democracy Center in Cambridge, Cooley-Dickinson Hospital in Northampton, and all Clover sites. Winter shares are still available, but filling up fast! And it's never too early to secure a spot for summer 2014. Thank you all, we are really looking forward to providing your shares. Please send questions firstname.lastname@example.org
