Fall CSA shares almost gone
Sign ups for the FAll CSA have begun and will soon end. If you are a current member, you will be able to just log in with your user ID and password and sign up. The site has been updated with all of the options for fall. If you are a new applicant, just follow the simple steps below. We are currently 80% sold. We are also happy to announce that we will be delivering some CSA shares into the Lincoln area this fall as well. We will have a drop open to the public at Akin’s Natural Foods on 68th and O street. This drop will be on Friday’s this fall and will begin when the fall CSA begins on the 25th of August.
What is a CSA
Community Supported Agriculture, most commonly known as a CSA, has become a very popular way to get healthy local foods and support your local farm economy at the same time.
Interested consumers purchase a share, or membership, and in return receive a bag of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. The fall CSA begins August 25th and will continue for 12 weeks. All shares are on a first come first serve basis.
How Do I Sign Up?
To sign up for the 2014 growing season just follow the instructions below:
Go to www.tomatotomato.org/CSA and click on the “apply for membership tab.” Fill in your personal information.
Upon approval, you will receive an email with a username and password to log in. Click on the “CSA log in” tab on www.tomatotomato.org/csa and put in the username and password that you received. You will be taken to your profile page where you can change your password and update any information. Click “update profile”, you will get confirmation that your changes are saved and you then need to click on the CSA tab to return to the main CSA page.
You may then place your order. Click on the “your CSA order” and choose what CSA options work best for you. You can pay on-line or stop by the store during normal store hours and we will be happy to accept payment there as well. Your CSA share is not secured until payment is received.
We look forward to getting to know you this fall and are so excited to see more and more people joining us in supporting local farms!
