Get ready for fresh veggies . . . it’s time to sign-up for the Radix Farm CSA.
CSA time is officially here. The kale and collard seedlings look beautiful and healthy in the greenhouse, last week we seeded carrots in the field, and we’ll plant three varieties of potatoes this week. Share deliveries and market days are just around the corner.
In addition to our regular CSA pick-up on Tuesdays in Mt.Pleasant/Colombia Heights, this year Radix Farm will be vending at the Petworth Community Farmers Market on Friday evenings and offering a new type of CSA pick-up at the Market.
How to Sign Up
Shares will be sold in the order in which we receive applications. As of Tuesday, March 13th, we have roughly 11 shares available for Tuesday pick-up and 2 shares available for the Friday Market pick-up.

1. Fill out the online CSA Membership Application: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHFBOElxVW5sUGN1UVZGdkFWRzhCa2c6MQ#gid=0
2. After we receive your Application, we will email to notify you if there is an opening in the CSA at your preferred pick up site. You’ll then have seven days to mail your payment and a signed copy of the Shareholder Agreement. (After seven days, your slot will be offered to the next person on the waiting list.)

Regular CSA Pick-Up: Tuesdays
Members pick-up the weekly share between 5:30pm and 7:00pm in the parking lot of St. Stephens Church. The price for 2012 Regular CSA Shares is $675 for 22 weeks of produce (including delivery). The 22 weekly deliveries will occur within a 24-week period between late May and mid November. Two weeks within this time frame will be “off” weeks with no share. Radix Farm does not offer half shares. If you think a full share would be too large, we suggest you alternate weeks with another household.
See CSA Information for more details on the Regular CSA Pick-Up.
Market CSA Pick-Up: Fridays
The Petworth Farmers Market CSA Pick-Up is a debit style system, where members begin a discounted debit account with the farm and shop for produce at the Radix Farm stand at the Petworth Farmers Market during market hours (4pm – 8pm) each Friday using your account credit. This style allows the customer maximum flexibility.
You can choose from two payment options:
a) Pay $425 now, receive a 6% Discount. Your season starts with $450 in your Radix Farm Debit Account.
b) Pay $625 now, receive a 10% Discount. Your season starts with $688 in your Radix Farm Debit Account.
See CSA Information for more details on how the Market Style Pick-Up works.
Feel free to call or email with any questions.
Looking forward to an exciting season,
