Nuts and Bolts

Check back soon for updated info for the 2022 CSA Veggie Box Program!

 

Pick-up days and times:

You can pick up from a hub in Quadra Village (Lkwungen territory) or from the farm (W̱SÁNEĆ territory)

Pick-up from the farm (4600 Cordova Bay Rd) is available on Tuesdays, between 5pm and 9pm.

Pick-up from the Quadra Village Hub is available on Fridays, between 5pm and 9pm.

A limited number of Friday farm pick-up spots may be available. Please get in touch if you’re interested.

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!

Hub pick-up:

I’ve chosen a hub pick-up model to reduce the farm’s workload while also trying to make fresh, local veggies as accessible as possible. 

Your veggie box will be brought to your chosen hub every week. It’s a contactless pick-up system and you can come whenever you please during the pick-up hours.

I send out reminder emails every week but it is the box member’s responsibility to pick up every week or make alternate arrangements. 

If you’re able to contribute to the sliding scale delivery cost, it would be much appreciated. This helps cover the delivery costs and pay our wonderful drivers.

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

Pricing:

I 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 $315 for the season (an average of $15/week). The large box is $630 for the season (an average of $30/week). 

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

Please indicate in the sign up form if you want to pay in instalments. I’ll be in touch to confirm payment details.

Commitment:

Joining a CSA is a season long commitment and I ask that anyone who joins will stay on board for the full 21 week season.

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

Add-ons:

You can add on flowers to your weekly CSA box!

  • Flower bunches ($90 plus tax)
    • Fresh blooms for 12 weeks
    • An assortment of cut flowers grown on site, including dahlias, cosmos, sunflowers and zinnias.
    • Limited availability; sign up now to ensure your fresh flower supply!

Community Sponsored CSA:

Making fresh, delicious veggies available to everyone is a big priority for Rake and Radish Farm.

While I’d love to be able to feed everyone who can’t afford to sign up for a veggie box, it just isn’t feasible with the narrow margins and financial reality of farming. Let’s just say nobody has ever gotten into sustainable farming for the money...

With that in mind, I’m putting it out to our CSA box members and wider community. If you’re in a position to and would like to chip in to help provide free veggie boxes to folks in our community that couldn’t otherwise afford one, I’d be very grateful.

You can sign up to help pay it forward on the CSA sign up page or get in touch through the Contact page.
