Volunteering is crucial to membership. West Village CSA members are required to sign up for TWO 2-hour work shifts per vegetable share for the 2022 season.
For people sharing/splitting a share (a great option for smaller households), each of the share partners are required to sign up for two 2-hour work shifts.
Those who are not able to volunteer can not sign up for a share. Each Share member is required to volunteer 4 hours over the season to help set up or break down or staff the tables.
The first distribution shift runs from 3:30-5:30pm, and the second from 5:30-7:30pm. All shifts take place at our distribution site, The Church of Saint Francis Xavier, 46 West 16th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues.
