Women’s Environmental Institute Community Supported Agriculture Work-Share Program 2020

Earn a CSA Farm Share by volunteering over our regular growing season (May-Oct) with our Amador Hill Farm crew or at our Farmers Market booth at Mill City Farmers Market.

***Read our CSA descriptions here before proceeding 2020 CSA Options***

We offer three seasonal CSA farm shares in 2020, a spring, summer, and autumn. We offer our workshare program to those interested in two or three of the seasonal CSA options.

  • Choose all three (spring, summer, and autumn) and work 13 days.
  • Choose any two CSAs (spring + summer or summer + autumn or spring + autumn) and work 9 days.

You will work one day per week for the selected number of weeks. Your work weeks do not need to be consecutive, and should be balanced over the CSA seasons. We do require that you work the same day of the week each week to help us balance our workforce. We will coordinate a schedule with you after you submit your application.
