- What is a CSA Flower Share? CSA is an abbreviation for Community Supported Agriculture. When you become a member of our CSA, you are buying a “share” of the flowers that we produce each season. We will provide the season’s most beautiful flowers for you to pick-up at location of choice.
- How do I order? Send me an email indicating which share you want and location of pickup. I will confirm availability and send you an order form with payment options.
- What forms of payment do you accept? I can take check, PayPal or Venmo
- How will I know when shares start? I will notify you by email or message you on social media whichever you prefer when flowers will become available-generally the beginning of July. The beginning of the season is variable and is at the whim of Mother Nature.
- Can I have someone else pick up my share? Absolutely! Just notify me ahead of time so I know I am giving your share to the correct person.
- Can I split a share with someone? Yes! What a great way to make flowers affordable and brighten more than one person’s day.
- What happens if I go on vacation? You can someone else pick up for you OR you can extend your weeks if you notify me ahead of time.
- Where are your flowers grown? All flowers are locally grown by Teresa Foster in both Erving and in Sunderland .
- What type of flowers will be in my share? This will vary by each week and month depending on what flowers are in bloom. Variety is the spice of life! I guarantee you will be pleased with the selection.
