Important things to note:
- Both Bushwick Food Co-op members and non-members are welcome to join the winter CSA; however, the Co-op charges a $10 administrative fee to help cover the costs associated with operating out of the Bushwick Food Co-op’s store front (such as rent, electricity, and insurance). If you are not currently a Co-op member but decide to join during the CSA, your admin fee can can go toward the Co-op’s $50 lifetime membership fee. For more information about joining the Co-op, please visit www.bushwickfoodcoop.org. If you are already a member of the co-op, this fee will be refunded to you.
- Winter shares are distributed differently than summer shares. Winter shares will likely come pre-packaged in reusable cardboard boxes (depending on which share you buy). Due to the cost associated with the use of boxes, the Garden of Eve charges a refundable box deposit fee. For each box you return from month to month you will get a voucher. At the end of the season you can turn in the vouchers for a cash rebate.
- Because there are only 6 distributions, the Winter CSA does not have a volunteer requirement.
