We will launch the 2019 Workshare CSA program in March

Churchview could not exist without our amazing force of volunteers, interns and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) workshares; their passion, dedication and labor is what keeps us going. And a big part of our mission is to bring the community to the farm - so come spend a few hours of your time working with us in the fresh air and sunshine and take home some delicious, healthy food, a unique learning experience, and satisfyingly sore muscles.

If you're interested in an experience that's more well-rounded than occasional volunteer work, ask about becoming a season-long workshare for 2018.

Workshares commit to 5-6 hours on the farm once a week during our growing season (mid May - Thanksgiving) in exchange for a full CSA share ($800 value). Some of our workshares have been with us since the beginning, and we get new faces every season.

We have a great crew of backyard gardeners, students, people with almost no growing experience, and retired farmers. Whether you come to learn or just spend some time getting sweaty in the sun, workshare is a great way to earn your food.

Interested in becoming a workshare or volunteer? Email Tara for details.
