Newton Community Farm, 303 Nahanton St., is accepting applications from Newton residents for shares in our 2014 CSA (community-supported agriculture) program.  Sharers will be selected via random lottery.  Applications are due at the farm by 5 pm on February 23rd.

In 2014, sharers will receive fresh, locally grown vegetables from June through October. The cost is $600 for a weekly share and $325 for an alternate-week share. Work commitment (by Oct 31) is 12 hours for a weekly share and six hours for an alternate week share, or $10/hour as an alternative. Applicants must also be a 2014 Friend of the Farm to be considered in the process ($35 for individual, $60 for family).
