Mmm...I can't wait!
As the garden grows and produce matures, you pick up your equal "Share" every week.... The produce is washed, boxed and labeled. Sharers select from a menu board vegetables available that week: each week is different.
A typical weekly Share could include: bunched carrots and beets; potatoes; broccoli or cauliflower; kale or Swiss chard; onion or leek; lettuces; herbs (parsley, oregano, marjoram, basil, thyme); peas or beans; radish; summer squash; tomato; pepper.
In the spirit of community, Sparrow's Nest also encourages shareholders to come and help at the farm, and in doing so they can receive a rebate of up to about 20% of the original share price. Given how little I know about gardening, being able to help at a local organic farm will be an invaluable learning experience for me! I will gain knowlege about what grows in our climate and learn some gardening skills from masters of the art/science/craft. Plus I get to dig in the dirt, which is one of my favorite things.
It just doesn't get any better than that!
