Thanks for your interest in purchasing a share of the 2014 season of the CSA. 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. Weavers Way Community Program's farm educator 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 the Weavers Way Farms, we do not buy in 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 reserves your share. Deposits are $100.
  • 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 under one name.
  • We expect our season to be 24 weeks long (late May through October), but is this is dependent on weather and growing conditions.
Buying a CSA share and being a Weavers Way Co-op member are separate but related. You can be a working CSA shareholder, and receive 5% off on your share. You can also be a working Co-op member and receive 5% on purchases in the stores. The same work hours can count toward both discounts. If you would like to move your Weavers Way Co-op work cycle to the summer in order to work on the farm, or learn more about becoming a Weavers Way Co-op member, please email your request to our Membership Coordinator at member@weaversway.coop.

Donate to Weavers Way Community Programs (WWCP)
Founded in 2006, Weavers Way Community Programs (WWCP) is the non-profit 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.
I want to donate 5% of my share price to WWCP.

Working Share Extraordinaire (5% + $100 discount)
We offer a limited number of shares at a $100 discount in exchange for a minimum of 2 hours of work every week of the CSA season.
I am interested in learning more about becoming a working shareholder extraordinaire.

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 31st, 2014.
I am interested in learning about staggered payment options.

I understand that payment of a share entitles me to a weekly pick-up of fresh, chemical-free produce harvested at the farm at Saul High School or the Weavers Way, Mort Brooks Memorial Farm at the Awbury Arboretum. 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 2014 CSA season, I will pay the remaining 5% balance on my share to cover necessary labor costs.
