CSA Updates (and yes, we still have a few shares left)

Transplanting cukes. 2017.

Hello friends and family of Athena's Harvest Farm. We hope everyone has been enjoying our fabulous spring weather over the last couple of weeks. We've been busy planting and weeding and prepping new beds here on the farm. The plants are all enjoying the happy moments before summer heat and insects arrive, and we are all barreling along towards the beginning of the market and CSA season. We've got two fabulous interns this year, and look forward to having you meet them as the year progresses.

We wanted to let you know know about the start dates for CSA deliveries, and also the location of the East Nashville pickup.

CSA Start Dates

For Full Shares Members, CSA pickups will begin during the week of May 15, and run 25 weeks/boxes though the first week of November.

Half Shares will follow roughly the same schedule, but will be delivered every other week (13 weeks/boxes in total). We have a lot of half share members, so we are randomly assigning them to a Group A and Group B, which will get their boxes on alternating weeks. We'll let all of our members know via email and phone which group they are in, and give everyone a schedule of all their pickup dates. Group B members will receive their first box and last box a week later than Group A members, so their dates will begin the week of May 22, and run through the week of November 6. Hopefully the email and schedules we send out will make all of this more clear.

East Nashville Pickup Location

Our pickup location in East Nashville will be in the parking lot at East Park (700 Woodland Street, Nashville, TN 37206) from ~4-6pm on Wednesdays during the CSA season. We'll send out more specifics to members who have signed up for East Nashville pickup.

We would love to get a few more sign-ups from the East Nashville area, so please tell you friends about us and encourage them to sign up in the next two weeks before our sign up period ends.
