Happy Wednesday everyone:
I just wanted to send a quick email with some "How to's" on picking up your summer/fall CSA shares from Hope United Church. The Shares start next week and we have been busy organizing and prepping for this change in season. We are excited to share 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 designated box of veggies, fruit or meat every week from the first week of July to mid December.
When you pull into the parking lot for Hope United (access to the parking lot is off of Young St., at the corner of Young and Connaught) you will see our big white TapRoot Van parked with doors open. We will be there between 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm on Tuesdays. All you have to do is come up to the friendly face in the van (which for the mean time will be me...Brogan) tell me your name and I'll check you off the list and give you your share plus any add-ons you may have purchased that week.
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 take back to the valley. If for some reason no one is able to pick up your share, it will be donated to the food bank at St. Peters Church.
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, or you are welcome to stop by when ever you like just to say hello, and see where your food is coming from.
Let me know if you need anything else from us? I will see you on Tuesday July 2nd between 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
