2014 Season Oxford Gardens CSA Agreement
Members of the Oxford Gardens 2014 CSA receive a weekly share of vegetables that will
vary in size and weight depending on the time of the season. CSA members agree to
support their farmer by sharing in the inherent risks of agriculture (poor weather, flood,
drought, hail, crop failure, etc.) and the rewards (fresh, local vegetables, the bounty of a
good season). CSA farmers carefully plan for contingencies by using growing techniques
that protect the harvest, minimize the risks, and optimize the rewards. On the whole,
members will get a wide variety of vegetables in plentiful amounts.
I understand this principle and agree that there is no guarantee on the exact amount or
type of produce I will receive in my share. By participating in the CSA, I am supporting
the local farmer as well as more equitable food distribution, and I am helping to create a
more environmentally and economically healthy society.
By becoming a member, I commit to picking up my share weekly and I understand that if
I, or someone I designate, is unable to pick up my share, the produce CANNOT be saved
or picked-up at a later date. All produce that is not picked-up on the designated day is
donated to a local food bank or other charitable organization.
You are welcome to split a share with someone. However, share-splitting is the
responsibility of the member; we do not manage the splitting of shares. This includes
payment: you are responsible for all payments. Do not divide the cost and pay half and
have your share-splitter pay half. You pay us for your full share, and have your sharesplitter reimburse you for their half. Many of our members work out arrangements to
share with their friends and neighbors, when they have to leave town during the growing
season.
Refunds are not given for any reason.
We are always available to answer all of your questions by phone or through email to
ensure that you are comfortable with your decision to become a CSA member. For more
information, please contact Peter Volz at 303.817.9676, or [email protected]
I agree to the above conditions.
