Community Farm Registration – Regular Season

$300.00

The idea behind the Beetbox Community Farm  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.

Participants receive a weekly basket of delicious fresh veggies, similar to a CSA share, 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!

The Regular season runs from May to the week of Thanksgiving. Participants come to the farm once per week for 3-4hr shift to work in the garden under the direction of a Coordinator.  There is also an option to join the “special projects” team and work on small construction/maintenance projects. A fall session will be offered this year from early Oct to early Nov when participants will mainly harvest root veggies for storage.

Shifts are Mon to Thurs from 4pm – 7:30pm or Sat-Sun mornings from 8:30am – 12pm. The value of the veggies participants will receive is more than double the cost to participate.

Please fill out the registration form.

Description

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 receive 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.  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. 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.
