How it Works

Box Size and Cost:
CSA members can choose between a full and half share at the costs listed below:

  • Full Share- 30 weeks @ $35/wk. Total= $1050
  • 1/2 Share-30 weeks @ $25/wk. Total= $750  *Please note that the ½ share is slightly more expensive weekly because of the labor required to divide quantities and package each box.

Boxes are distributed every Thursday once the season begins. Subscribers are responsible for pick-up at one of three locations at the prescribed times:

  • Pay monthly via automatic transactions from a debit/checking account

Shared Reward | Shared Risk

The shared reward/shared risk model is the reigning ideology of CSAs around the country. Memberships are purchased in-full prior to the growing season and include a share of the Heartland Harvest Garden regardless of yields. Good growing seasons provide members with a bountiful harvest while issues with pests, weather and other unforeseen factors may adversely effect crop yields. As a CSA member, you become part of the Powell Gardens family, experiencing the true nature of agriculture through shared rewards and shared risk.
