Thanks for your interest in purchasing a 2022 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, Food Moxie, 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. We use organic practices on our farms, however we are not certified organic.

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. Food Moxie is a non profit offshoot of Weavers Way. At Henry Got Crops, FOOD MOXIE supports experiential education in scratch cooking with whole foods, seasonal and healthy eating and small-scale sustainable agriculture production and community food security. This CSA is also unique in that all your vegetables are grown at our two farms (The Mort Brooks Memorial Farm at the Awbury Arboretum and the Henry Got Crops Farm at Saul High School). 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.

  • If you are splitting a share, please submit one form and payments all under the same name.
  • We expect our season to be 24 weeks long (late May through October), but this is dependent on weather and growing conditions.
  • If you would like to purchase 2 shares, or are buying a share for a friend, please do not use this form. Instead, email henrygotcrops@weaversway.coop and we will assist you.

Is this your first year as a CSA Shareholder?



The 2022 season is our first year offering the option to purchase a "You-Pick Only" share! To accommodate the additional shareholders we have expanded our you-pick section. The You-Pick share is only for the You-Pick designated area at the top of the field (marked with signs) and does not include the whole farm.

Once the CSA has started, You-Pick Only shareholders can come pick anytime the farm market is open, Tuesday and Friday 10-7 or Saturday 10-4. We rely on the honor system to ensure that everyone picks the amount set in our CSA newsletter or on the blackboard at the farm. CSA shareholders and You-Pick only shareholders will have access to the same amount of you-pick produce.

The cost of this option is $240.00.



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.

(Tuesdays are now full. Questions - please contact henrygotcrops@weaversway.coop.)


Share Size

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.
As part of both the large and small share, you will have access to our You-Pick section. This area of the farm is open to harvesting by all CSA shareholders. What is available on any given week will be listed on a chalkboard with amounts given per item.


Discounts

5% Working Discount:
Volunteer 4 hours for a small share, and 6 hours for a large share and earn 5% off on the price of your CSA. 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.

Pay What You Can You-Pick

As part of both the large and small share, you will have access to our You-Pick section. This area of the farm is open to harvesting by all CSA shareholders. What is available on any given week will be listed on a chalkboard at the farm with amounts given per item.
Because this has always been a treasured experience for CSA shareholders we offer this at a pay-what-you-can rate. Your contribution will be kept private, and you are welcome to use the You-Pick as much as you want, regardless of what you pay. This is voluntary but highly encouraged. Your contribution helps make this a sustainable part of our farm and allows it to be available for all shareholders.
Thank you to everyone who contributed last year! Your support helped cover the costs of planting and maintaining the You-Pick area.

Not sure how much to donate?
Here are some things to consider:
When we ran the numbers, we found that on average, shareholders can pick $288 worth of veggies, flowers, and herbs throughout the 24 week season, an average of $12 per week. This calculation is based on wholesale prices, accounting for the labor you all spend doing the picking.
How much is the experience of picking fresh flowers for your home worth to you?
Can you afford to help others have a You-Pick experience?
Here is a snap shot of typical retail prices for local, organic items at a farmers market:

  • flower bouquets: between $12-$24
  • A pint of cherry tomatoes: $4
  • A bunch of herbs: $2-$3
  • A sunflowers: $1 per stem
  • I will contribute:

    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 2022 CSA season, I will pay the remaining 5% balance on my share to cover necessary labor costs.
