I understand that my membership payment entitles me to a weekly share of produce harvested for the CSG during the 2009 growing season from the Neighborhood Farm Initiative. I understand that this is a community supported venture and although the growers are committed to the best of their ability to provide high quality organic produce, there are risks in agriculture which need to be shared by the whole community. I am responsible for picking up my produce on the day of delivery during scheduled pick-up hours. No special arrangements can be made if I do not pick up my box on time.

Please contact neighborhoodfarm@gmail.com if you have any further questions or would like a copy of our soil-test. We are growing the vegetables organically on 1/3 acre lot in Washington DC, so this is as local as you can get!
