7) PICK-UP PROTOCOL

If you have chosen to pick up your CSA box from a pick-up site, please thoroughly read our Pick-up Protocol below. Understanding and following these instructions is very important to the successful operation of our CSA! Not following them WILL LEAD TO PROBLEMS and chronic abusers may be asked to leave our membership.

  1. Remember to pick up box!
    1. You should receive a reminder via email, but it is ultimately your responsibility to pick up your share on the correct day and during the allotted pick-up time.   
    2. If you forget, we cannot replace, refund or give you credit.
  2. When you first arrive at the pick-up site, look for your name on the checklist.
    1. If your name is NOT on the list, DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING!
    2. We only drop off enough boxes, etc. for the people listed. If you take something and you are not on the list, you are taking someone else's share. Call us and we will find out the reason and work things out.
  3. ONLY take what is listed next to your name.
    1. This includes making sure of the size box that you are scheduled to pick-up.
    2. And if you ordered any add-ons.
    3. If your name IS on the list but there is not a correct size left, it is okay to take the other. If your name is on the list, a share has been packed for you, so don't leave empty handed. Occasionally someone will take the wrong thing, so if there are no boxes left in your size, take the other size and then call us and let us know so that we can work things out.
    4. People can also forget to check their names off so do not assume remaining boxes necessarily map to the number of un-checked boxes on the checklist. If your name is on the list, take a share.
  4. Keep the pick-up site neat and clean
    1. Do not leave unwanted produce or trash at the pick-up site.
    2. Leave empty box, unfolded and flattened in a neat pile.
  5. If you cannot pick-up your box at the scheduled time:
    1. Please call the pick-up site coordinator to inform them that you cannot be there
    2. It will be up to the coordinator what to do with your box.
    3. You will be charged the full amount for your missed pick-up.

8) DELIVERY FEE/HANDLING FEE

If you are receiving your CSA box from a pick-up site, the delivery fee is $3.00 per box regardless as to the size of the box.

There is no delivery fee if you are picking up from Tanaka Farms' Produce Stand.

9) RETURN EMPTY BOXES

Please return your empty, flattened box when picking up your next scheduled CSA box.

Do not tear the boxes as they become unusable. To open the top, look for creases that "squeeze to unlock." DO NOT PULL or TEAR at the flaps. To flatten the box, turn upside down and fold the ends towards the inside of the box, and then outwards. Once you have unlocked the flaps, the box will fold on itself.
