The Prospect Heights CSA accepts new members every spring for the upcoming CSA season (22 weeks running June-November). Those members who are accepted and in good standing for the full season will have the option to sign up for winter shares at the end of the season (four monthly deliveries from November-February).
Interested in joining us?
Sign up for our mailing list here. Each spring we’ll email this list with the opportunity to sign up for the CSA season. We do not have a waiting list, and for members of this mailing list shares are distributed on a lottery basis. Returning members who did NOT put down deposits for the season have no priority over applicants who are new members.
To express interest in a share, you’ll fill out our sign up form, which will be available through that email and on our blog once it goes live. The form will ask you for three pieces of information:
- Your contact information
- Whether you are interested in a full share (every week for 22 weeks) or a half share (every other week for a total of 11 deliveries over the 22 week season)
- Your income level. As per our mission, we offer shares at two price points to make our shares available to more of our neighbors. Please be honest so that we can continue to make the CSA available to everyone.
Within two weeks we will let you know if you have a spot in the CSA this season. If so, we’ll direct you to our order form.
For returning members: If you put down a deposit for the upcoming season, you’ll be directed straight to the order form from a separate email. You do NOT need to fill out the sign up form. Returning members who did NOT put down deposits for the season have no priority over applicants who are new members.
