Spoon Full CSA FAQ

 
 

Question: What is a "CSA"?

Answer: The original definition was "Community-Supported Agriculture," wherein farm consumers would pay farmers up front for the year's produce, to help with spring planting costs. Our definition is "Community-Supporting Agriculture," because our CSA program is all about building community. We design our boxes to help you deliciously grow your community around amazing food, and help to grow your personal connection to the earth and all of its bounty.

 

Q: How does it work, exactly?

 

Q: Why should I sign up for a CSA?

 

Q: What do i get?

Answer: Lots of delicious health!!! Right, but what exactly? Well, it depends on the month. Scroll down to the bottom of this page for sample boxes that exemplify each month of the Spoon Full CSA season. As you can see, the haul gets better and better throughout the summer :)

Q: can i opt out after i sign up?

Answer: Yes, of course. We find it highly unlikely, but we are here to serve you, and we only want to be a wonderful influence on your life. We can refund you for any boxes that you have signed up for but haven't yet received. 

We also have a monthly payment option available, if you don't want to invest in your health up front! 

Q: Where do i pick up my boxes?

Answer: We'll drop off your weekly box at a convenient spot near you in Seattle, the Eastside, or Ellensburg. Our drop sites will most likely be: Madrona, Issaquah, Laurelhurst, and Columbia City. Home delivery is also available. If you are open to your home being a drop site (for 5-10 other members, a shady driveway is perfect), then let us know.

Q: What if I'm traveling and have to miss a week?

Answer: Not a problem. We can refund you for two weeks of missed boxes. You can also choose to donate your missed boxes to help 

Q: What if it's too much produce?? 

A: Solo box, nutri-bullet, etc. 

Q: What could go wrong??

Answer: Yes!
