OH MY GOODNESS. WE’RE SOLD OUT.

Did you receive a gift membership? We’ve saved your spot. Complete the form below to redeem.

Early registration for this year’s Summer Flower CSA was tremendous! We’re grateful (and a bit surprised) to receive 130 registrations in less than a week.

Although very excited for the support of our farm, we regret many past members might’ve missed the opportunity to register. If you would like to be kept informed about flower pop-up sales events later this year and/or notified when early registration opens next year, please complete this short form.

FAQs

Why did you sell out so fast this year?

Although very excited about the early response, we’re not sure why this year sold out so quickly. It’s likely because more people have become aware of the CSA during the past years, and flowers signify hope for better tomorrows after such a very hard year.

Can I still redeem my gift membership?

Yes. We’ve saved your spot for this year. Complete the short form above these questions to redeem your gift membership.

I'm a member and have a question.

Let’s talk. The form above these questions includes an option for current member questions or give us a call at 859-519-1911.

What does CSA mean?

CSA is the abbreviation for community-supported agriculture. This term means the farmer and member share in the benefits and risks of agricultural production. We commit to keeping members informed about successes and challenges during the growing season with a monthly member newsletter. This publication will include information about the flowers in season, a story from a survivor who helped grow your flowers, and details about other happenings on our farm.

When will my membership begin and end?

This depends on the membership details you chose during registration. The first share of flowers will be distributed the week of June 7 and will continue either weekly, every other week, or monthly through September. Look for a reminder emails from us with more details a couple of weeks before the season begins, or complete the form above these questions to request a duplicate of copy of your membership confirmation email.

Where and when do I pickup my flowers?

With the support of our amazing community partners, we offered pickup from several locations and limited delivery options. The email you received after signing up confirmed your membership details. Look for a reminder emails from us with more details a couple of weeks before the season begins, or complete the form above these questions to request a duplicate of copy of your membership confirmation email.

What if I can't pick up my flowers one week?

We understand that life events — illness, vacations, emergencies — happen. Unfortunately, given our production schedule, we are unable to reschedule your pickup day or location after your membership has begun. If you’re unable to pick up your flowers one week, please send a friend or family member to pick up the flowers in your place. We donate unclaimed weekly flowers to a local senior living facility for residents to enjoy.

What kind of flowers do you grow?

Our flowers are local and seasonal. Colors and varieties change throughout the summer. Little bug bites on leaves here and there are a reminder that we don’t use harsh chemicals when growing your flowers. You will likely find a variety of different stems in each unique bouquets, but these are the most prolific on our farm:

  • June flowers include Bachelors Buttons, Calendula, Snapdragons, Ageratum, Rudbeckia, Celosia, Zinnia, Basils, Sweet Peas, Bells of Ireland, Nigella, and Queen Anne’s Lace.
  • July flowers include Zinnia, Celosia, Ageratum, Basils, Sunflowers, Marigold, Rudbeckia, Gomphrena, Coneflower, Globe Thistle, and Queen Anne’s Lace.
  • August flowers include Zinnia, Celosia, Amaranthus, Ageratum, Basils, Marigold, Sunflowers, Gomphrena, Sweet Annie, and Dahlias.
  • September flowers include Zinnia, Celosia, Ageratum, Marigold, Basils, Sunflowers, Gomphrena, and Dahlias.

How does my membership support survivors of intimate partner abuse?

Your membership creates nature-based healing opportunities on the farm that surrounds our emergency shelter for survivors and their children.

Our farm is supported by research related to trauma-informed care for women veterans, studies exploring the restorative and healing outcomes of therapeutic  gardens, and examinations of “social farming” as a means to promote healing and community networks in rural areas.

The farm also provides small-business training and micro-enterprise opportunities for survivors. Participants develop new skills and recent workplace experience as they strive to find healing and rebuild their lives. Our vision is for the farm to become an economically self-sustaining program that provides a reliable source of revenue for our agency’s mission.

Is my membership tax-deductible?

Probably not. The market value of your weekly flowers exceeds the cost being charged for membership, so it’s unlikely your membership will be tax-deductible; however, we recommend speaking with a tax professional to confirm. Should you require additional information for tax purposes, please contact us.

I have another question not answered here.
