Hi all, Happy Rainy Friday.
I just wanted to send a quick email with some "How to's" on picking up your summer/fall CSA shares from School St. Glass. The Shares start next week and we have been busy organizing and prepping for this change in season. We're looking forward to sharing food with you for the next 24 weeks.
First welcome to; or welcome back to; the TapRoot CSA, as a member you folks will receive your chosen box of veggies, fruit or meat every week from the first week of July to mid December.
At School St. you will find your share; sitting right outside the shop on their beautiful wooden bench (weather dependant!) Or sitting right inside the front door of the store. Tim, one of the co owners and past employee of the farm I'm sure would be happy to show you just where your box may be. It's also important for you folks to meet! The staff will check your name off of their CSA list and make sure you get all of your items for the week! Meat shares and any frozen fruit or vegetables will be in coolers, the staff will also show you where to find those :)
You will be able to pick up your share anytime between Wednesday's at 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm. If you can't make it in time you have two options, 1) Call the store 902 791 1171 to check in with Tim or Jason to see if they can hold your share for you. Or 2) You share will be donated.
Your share comes in a cardboard box, feel free to bring the boxes home, but please return them the following weeks - we reuse these boxes until they've had their fill. Alternatively you could bring a reusable bag and simply take your items out of the box, leaving it for us to pick up later on.
We will post what is in your share every Friday, you can find the posting on our website. If there is a particular item in the share that doesn't suite your palette there will be a SWAP box available to swap your items during the delivery.
E-mail is our main thread of communication, however if you ever need/want to give us a call anytime please do: 902 542 3277
And finally we would like to say thank you for choosing us as your farmers! We are looking forward to sharing food with you for the next six months. We also host events on the farm from time to time, and you are always welcome to stop by the when ever you like. It's great to show folks around and you can see where your food is coming from.
Let me know if you need anything else or have any further questions.
