Community Farm Registration
$135.00 – $400.00
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.
Community Farm is like a grow-your-own CSA basket. Participants work a weekly or biweekly shift in our collective garden plot (a ½ acre) at BeetBox Farm. From May to September, we weed, prep, plant and maintain our collective plot, and harvest a weekly share of delicious fresh veggies from it. This is a separate garden than the BeetBox CSA or farm store gardens.
*New for 2023* You can now purchase a Half share and join the program on a bi-weekly basis or a Full Share and participate weekly. We also added a Vacation policy where you can miss up to 3 weeks if you have purchased a Full-share. Our last big update is that we are trying out a sliding scale payment option to help make the program more accessible.Click Here to Find Out More
Share Size: Full Share (weekly gardening & veggies) or Half Share (Every other week gardening & veggies)

Share Price: Our Sliding Scale has 3 price points: Supporter- Market Price- Access. If you are able*, please consider purchasing your share above the Market Price point as a Supporter as that enables us to offer more shares at the discounted Access price point. Currently we have only a limited number of access shares available. The market price for the program works out to $17.78 per week for the 18 weeks of bountiful harvests we have planned.
SALES OPEN MID-MARCH!

*How to Select Share Price : It’s important to us that if someone is excited about the community farm program, they are able to participate. Toward that end, we are trying a sliding scale pricing option. If you are able, please consider purchasing your share above the market price point as a Supporter as that enables us to offer more shares at the discounted price point. This allows us to diversify our community.
