Nuts and Bolts

Pick-up days and times:

We offer pick-up on Lkwungen territory (Victoria) from two central neighbourhood hubs as well as farm pick-up.

We harvest and deliver on Tuesdays and Fridays. 

The Tuesday hub is located in James Bay and the Friday hub is in Quadra Village.

Pick-up from the farm (4600 Cordova Bay Rd) is also available on both days, between 5pm 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!

Hub pick-up:

We’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.

We try to 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 lets the farm cover all the delivery costs and pay our wonderful drivers.

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 $600 for the season ($30/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.

Add-ons:

You can add on flowers to your weekly CSA box!

  • Flower bunch ($60 plus tax)
    • $5/week for 12 weeks
    • Assortment of cut flowers grown on site, including sweet peas, cosmos, sunflowers and zinnias.
    • Limited availability; sign up now to ensure your fresh flower supply!

Pay it forward CSA:

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

While we’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, we’re 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, we’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.
