Community Farm Registration – Regular Season

$300.00

Beetbox Community Farm was born out of the enthusiasm for growing food that welled up in our community early in the pandemic. The idea is simple: a coordinated group of gardeners with a little bit of planning, expertise, and equipment from the farm can produce A LOT more food than the same gardeners working alone.

It is like a grow-your-own CSA basket. Participants harvest a weekly basket of delicious fresh veggies, as well as the opportunity to build farming knowledge and meet awesome people.  This group is perfect for aspiring or experienced gardeners who want to grow their own food in a more fun and efficient model!

How it Works:

Participants come to the farm once per week for 3-4hrs during the growing season (May- early October) to plant, weed, and harvest crops under the direction of a coordinator. Participants work on the community farm garden and sometimes on shared projects with the BeetBox horticulture team. There is also an option to join the “special projects” team and work on small construction/maintenance projects.

Shifts are Monday to Thursday from 4pm – 7:30pm and Saturday or Sunday mornings from 8:30am – 12pm. Group size is around 6-10. Participants divide up the harvest from the garden at the end of each shift. The value of the veggies participants will receive is more than double the cost to participate.

You can share ‘a share’ and alternate weeks between two people but it is expected someone comes every week from your team. Families are also welcome. What we have seen is that usually one parent is on child care at the farm, while the other works, although some tasks are kid-friendly!

Vacation policy
Each participant can skip 2 weeks in the season without concern.  For additional shifts missed, we ask participants to come on another day of the week to make up their shift or swap shifts with another participant.

In order to participate please fill out the registration form . Your spot cannot be guaranteed until payment is received. Spaces are limited.
