What’s in the bag?
CSA subscribers can expect a variety of clean, seasonal USDA Certified Organic vegetables, herbs, and fruit. Also, jams, jellies, pickles and other goodies as they become available. A full share will feed a small family, or a couple of veggie-loving adults.
White Violet Center gardens are in the process of being USDA Certified Organic. By the start of our summer CSA program, our veggies should be proudly sporting the green & white organic label!
Here’s a list of the tentative crop list for the 2015 season: leaf and head lettuce, spinach, mustard, kale, chard, peas, radishes, basil, parsley, dill, cilantro, sweet and hot peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, summer squash, beans, beets, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, fennel, okra, tomatillos, ground cherries, sweet corn, onions, green onions, cucumbers, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, winter squash, pumpkins, garlic, … and a few other goodies.

All shareholders are asked to commit to this statement:
I understand that by becoming a shareholder of the Community Supported Agriculture initiative, I will share both the rewards and the risks of the growing season along with the other shareholders and the growers. I recognize that there is no guarantee of the exact amount I will receive each week. I agree to comply with all safety measures posted in the distribution area while on the property.
After signing up for your share at www.WhiteViolet.CSAsignup.com, you can create a CSA Member Login. Your CSA Member Login will let you check your payment balance, make a payment, request a vacation hold for when you’ll be away, update your membership (ex, go from a half share to a full or vice versa), and even see what shares you’ve gotten and more.
Directions for setting up your account are in the confirmation email that you will get after signing up for the 2015 CSA.
There is a “No Thank You” option with your share. While subscribing online you may select up to three items that you wish to never receive in your bag. If you never want to look at another chard stem, you don’t have to! Alternatively, if you would like to get everything, you can select that option. We’re working on a substitution list for those who choose not to get some of the items on offer.
If you split your share with another person, you can now register that person as an additional user. Each online account can hold up to four users. This means that everyone will get the messages that we send to shareholders.
Check it out online and then if you still have questions, contact Candace Minster, garden manager and fiber projects coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 812-535-2933.
