CSA—News and Schedule

PotatoesCSA Registration by Phone, Mail, E-Mail

The RTI CSA farmers/vendor take applications well ahead of the first in-person sign-up date at RTI (see additional information about sign-up days below). Beginning in February, both returning and new customers are welcome to review the online information about that year's farmers/vendor and what they offer, print the sign-up form(s), and prepay (for farm shares) by mailing a check to the chosen farmer(s). Customers make individual commitments to the suppliers and are free to sign up and pay at any time. It is advised to check in with the farmers by phone or e-mail to reserve your space before sending in prepayment.

Sign-Up Day

One of the most gratifying aspects of a local CSA program is getting to know the people in your community who grow or raise your food and make sure you receive it fresh each week.

Join the RTI CSA listserv (send an email to kel@rti.org) to receive a notice about the 2014 sign-up day and to receive other information about RTI's CSA program.

All are welcome to come and meet representatives from our CSA vendors; to ask them questions about share sizes and costs, the produce offered, and their farming histories; and to sign up and pay for shares.

Campus Delivery Location: Dreyfus Building Parking Lot

The on-campus CSA delivery location is the former Dreyfus Building parking lot. Consult the RTI campus map to see the delivery location.

Signs are set up on Thursdays to direct CSA traffic to the CSA pick-up location. Deliveries are available for pick up between 4 and 6 p.m. Non-RTI CSA customers must use the Security call button to gain entrance through the gates.

In addition to the food shares for prepaid customers, some of the farmers bring "extras" for sale to anyone who comes to the on-campus location on Thursdays.
