Member Commitment: I commit to membership in the Min Ha'Aretz Hazon CSA at Beth El with LANCASTER FARM FRESH for the 2017 harvest season. As a member, I commit myself to supporting the farmers with timely payment. In addition, I commit to pick up my weekly delivery at Congregation Beth El Yardley. I understand that if I do not pick up my share during the specified pick up time, it will be donated to the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry in Fairless HIlls PA and other local food pantries.. As part of my membership I also agree to volunteer a minimum of 1 shift (per household) at distribution during the CSA Season. If this is not possible because of work conflicts, I agree to contact the Co-Coordinators to complete my volunteer commitment.
As a member of the CSA, I will receive a weekly share of freshly harvested, certified organic produce. The shares will vary in size and weight depending on the time of the season. One aspect of CSA is that members support their farmer by sharing in the inherent risks of agriculture (poor weather, drought, disease, early frost, crop failure and so on) and rewards (the bounty from a good season) involved in farming. CSA farmers purposely plan for such contingencies, and use growing techniques that protect the harvest, minimize risk to members, and optimize the rewards: growing a wide variety of crops that thrive in different types of conditions; cover cropping, crop rotation, and irrigation. Moreover, the CSA builds relationships of trust between the farmer and community group. On a whole, members will get a wide variety of vegetables in plentiful amounts. Therefore, I understand this principle and agree that there is no guarantee on the exact amount or type of produce I will receive in my share. By participating in the CSA, I am supporting the local farmer and farm workers as well as supporting a more equitable food distribution, and I am helping to create a more environmentally just, economically fair and healthy society.
