Like many other CSAs in New York City, CHCSA now offers two styles of shares, Full Shares and Half Shares. Full Shares will work as they always have, with 22 weeks of pick-ups, and Half Shares will operate on an every-other-week schedule, giving those members 11 weeks of pick-ups. Members who choose a Half Share will be assigned either to WEEK A or WEEK B and will pick up their full share of vegetables on their assigned week. Half shares have been requested by many of our members in the past, and we looking forward to offering them this year.
Plan A Full Share: $575 / Plan A Half Share: $288
Plan B Full Share: $365 / Plan B Half Share: $183
