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.

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?

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.

Can I purchase a membership as a gift?

Yes! Please complete the membership form using your own name and contact information. Select the pickup day and location that you believe the gift recipient will prefer. Then include a note with your order to let us know the membership is a gift. We’ll follow up with you within the next few days to confirm the name and contact information of the gift recipient. We can also provide a certificate that you can print and present to the gift recipient.
