Thanks for your interest in purchasing a 2015 CSA share. Keep in mind that your share is not officially reserved for you until we receive a deposit. This farm is a partnership between Weavers Way Co-op, Weavers Way Community Programs, Saul High School of Agriculture and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation.

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It's a method of food distribution that directly links farmers and local community members, letting both share in the natural risks and rewards of farming.

But we are more than just a CSA -- we grow food for the community while also providing educational opportunities for Saul High School students. Located on the campus of the W.B. Saul High School for Agricultural Sciences, the farm is managed by Weavers Way staff in collaboration with Saul students and teachers. The Co-ops nonprofit arm Weavers Way Community Programs provides comprehensive farm education through curriculum-based lessons and hands-on farming experience, teaching students about small scale, sustainable vegetable production and distribution. This CSA is also unique in that all your vegetables are grown at our farms. We do not buy any vegetables from other farms. By buying a share in this farm, you are supporting agricultural education while sharing the risks and benefits of small scale, local agriculture.

  • A nonrefundable deposit of $100 reserves your share.
  • The full payment is due by the first CSA pick-up (unless you sign up for staggered payments). You can pay online with a credit card or with EBT over the phone.
  • If you are splitting a share, please submit one form and payments all under the same name.

Household & Billing Information

Please supply your name and your household's address. You will be set up as the Primary Member for this household. Please supply alternate billing information if necessary. It must match what appears on your monthly credit card statement and you will not have another chance to modify it.

Is this your first year as a CSA Shareholder?



Pickup Day

This will be your day for the whole season. Pick ups are only at the farm across the street from Saul High School: 7095 Henry Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19128.



Share Size and Discounts

Shares come in two sizes, small and large. A small share generally consists of 5-6 units of vegetables and is recommended for two people. A large share consists of the same vegetables as a small share but is twice as large, consisting of 10-12 units, and is recommended for four people. A unit is similar to what you would typically buy at a grocery store. For instance one unit could be a bunch of carrots or a head of lettuce.

Buying a CSA share and being a Weavers Way Co-op member are separate but related. Both memberships offer a working discount, which is a 5% discount in exchange for working. These hours can be one and the same, meaning if you are a working CSA shareholder, and a working Co-op member, you can volunteer at the farm and earn credit toward your discount both for the CSA and at the store. For more information about working on the farm, or becoming a member of the co-op, please email member@weaversway.coop

Donate to Weavers Way Community Programs (WWCP)

Founded in 2007, Weavers Way Community Programs (WWCP) is the nonprofit arm of Weavers Way Co-op. While the Co-op runs the business of the CSA and manages all farm production, WWCP uses the farm for experiential learning and farm-related education programs. Educational activities include curriculum-based and hands-on learning activities, exploration of the farm, and opportunities to taste and cook nutritious foods. The cost of your share offsets the expenses associated with farm operations. To support the educational programs provided by WWCP and to ensure students have the opportunity to grow, harvest and eat the same produce grown for your share, please consider supporting WWCP. Donate online or learn more here.

Additionally, you can opt into our High Five! program, in which you donate an additional 5% of your pre-discounted share price to WWCP.



Staggered Payments

You can make your payments in three monthly installments. A $100 deposit is still necessasry to reserve your share. Complete payment must be fulfilled by July 31, 2015.



Discounts for shareholders receiving financial assistance

Weavers Way's newest discount program, Food for All, makes our CSA shares more affordable to our community. We provide a 10% discount on a limited number of shares. Shareholders qualify if they currently receive food stamps (SNAP), TANF - Cash Assistance, Medicaid,or WIC.

Payment

I understand that payment entitles me to a weekly share of fresh, chemical-free produce harvested at the Henry Got Crops farm at Saul High School and the Mort Brooks farm at the Awbury Arboretum (Weavers Way Farms). I understand that I am sharing the risks that come with the growing season (including weather, insects, crop diseases, etc.) with the other shareholders and the farmers. I understand that the size and duration of my share is dependent on these variables. It is my responsibility to pick up my share on the day and time specified. I understand that my payment is non-refundable. I agree that if I do not fulfill my work commitment by the end of the 2015 CSA season, I will pay the remaining 5% balance on my share to cover necessary labor costs.
