Picking up from drop sites

I understand that my share will be delivered weekly to the pick up location I select. If I am out of town or unable to pick up my CSA for any reason, I understand that it is my responsibility to find someone to collect my share for me. If my share is not picked up during the designated day/time window, I understand it will be donated and I will not receive credit or a refund for any shares that I do not pick up. If you are away you understand you have one deferral in the season, or you have to let the team know that you either want it donated, time given to the farmers or gifted to a friend of yours. I understand that I am responsible for bringing back any boxes (if our next risk assessment allows for us to go back to using boxes).

Sharing the risk

I understand that as a member, I share in both the bounty and the risks of farming Farming is a seasonal and unpredictable undertaking. The share will vary from week to week depending on what is looking best in the fields at that time. Fluctuation and variations are inherent in farming (due to seasons, weather, pests, and other unforeseen forces of nature). Soul Farm will, to the best of its ability, provide the freshest, highest quality vegetables possible — however, I understand I am assuming a mutual risk with my farmer, and that I share in the bounty as well as in the risks of agriculture. I understand that the risks include poor harvests due to unfavourable weather or pests, or the total loss of all crops due to a natural disaster such as fire, flood, or drought

Returning boxes

I understand that it is important to reuse the boxes to keep costs down. Where possible I will leave my box out for collection or bring to a drop site when I pick up a box. Try and keep the box dry if you can, popping in a plastic bag for instance would be good.
