Hello and welcome the Wobbly Cart Fall CSA !, October, 23 2010
Your first pick-up will be on Tuesday October 26th,
For those of you who are already members this is going to be really easy. All of your drop sites will remain the same so we will basically just continue on as usual. For the rest of you I will review the drop locations and procedures.
Any questions? Our telephone number is (360) 273-7597 and email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rochester/Farm: Boxes will be in the cooler located at the rear of the barn. To get here from the stoplight in Rochester drive south on Albany, turn right on 185th/Marble/Independence Road. Go about four miles and turn right on 201st Avenue SW (look for “llamas for sale” sign). We are the first driveway on the right just before the big barn and school bus. Pick up anytime after 2pm.
Centralia: Pick-up inside Good Health Nutrition Center (near the Goodwill): 503 Harrison Avenue between 2:30 and 6pm.
East Olympia: 508 Fir Street NE. This is about two blocks north of Ralph’s Thriftway. Yellow house; boxes will be in the garage at the end of the driveway. Pick-up between 4 and 7pm.
West Olympia: 1520 Hays Ave. The boxes will be on the front porch. Pick-up between 4 and 7 pm.
Northeast Portland: Pick-up at the Ramshackle: 4635 NE Garfield Avenue. Boxes will be in the shaded driveway to the north of the house. Pickup between 4 and 8pm.
The boxes will not be labeled with your name but they will all be the same. There will be a list of names and a stack of newsletters at each drop site each week. Make sure to check your name off the list so that we know you have received your box. Then grab a newsletter (or two if you’re sharing) and pick up your box. We ask that you ‘break down’ the previous week’s box and return it to the drop site when you make your next pick-up so that we may re-use it. If you are out of town at any point please make sure to arrange to have a friend or family member pick up your box. If we don’t hear from you and your box is left past 8pm the drop site host will find a home for you’re veggies (food bank, family in need, very hungry folks, etc.)
In addition, there will be “swap boxes” at each site that we will stock with a couple of items. We encourage you to be adventurous in trying new things but if you are sure you can’t use an item in your box then exchange it for something in the swap box.
We hope you enjoy the Fall CSA!
Thanks so much for your support,
Asha, Joseph and the Crew
