Nitty Gritty Details

Pick-up days and times:

Our CSA boxes are delivered by bike around Lkwungen territory (Victoria).

This year, due to COVID-19, we will be offering home delivery instead of our pick-up hub model; scroll down to learn more.

We harvest and deliver on Mondays and Thursdays. Our current service area includes Quadra and McKenzie, Uptown, Vic West, Downtown, James Bay, Quadra Village, Oaklands, Shelbourne and Gordon Head.

Pick-up from the farm (4600 Cordova Bay Rd) is also available on both days, between 4:30pm and 9pm.

The first pick-up date will be early June and boxes will continue until October.

If you move during the summer and wish to change your pick-up location, just let us know!

Delivery:

As long as you live in our service area of Gordon Head, Uptown, Vic West, Downtown, James Bay or Quadra Village we will be offering door-step delivery for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you live in a different neighbourhood, just get in touch and we’ll see how we can make it work.

Delivery is done on a sliding scale ($0-$6/week) to help make receiving fresh veggies safe and accessible for everyone.

Pick-up from the farm (4600 Cordova Bay Rd) is always free.

Check out our FAQ page to learn more about sliding scale pricing.

Pricing:

We offer two different sizes of boxes to best meet your needs. Check out the FAQ to learn more about which box is right for you.

The small box is $300 for the season ($15/week). The large box is $500 for the season ($25/week). 

While we greatly appreciate if you’re able to pay upfront, we also get that that’s not possible for lots of folks in our community and we’re happy to accept payment by instalments.

Please indicate in the sign up form if you want to pay in instalments. We’ll send you a form to sign so that we know we can count on your continued payments every month until October.

Commitment:

Joining a CSA is a season long commitment and we ask that anyone who joins will stay on board for the full 20 week season.

This allows us to know we have a continuous customer base and lets you enjoy all the different vegetables we grow throughout the spring, summer and fall.
