FIELD or MARKET SHARES

If diving into full-time farm work isn’t quite your speed yet, our workshare program could be the perfect fit for you! Workshares have the opportunity to play a vital role in Everwild’s CSA by committing 4-5.5 hours per week throughout the season. With two types of Workshares available – a Field Share and a Market Share – you have diverse avenues to contribute. We’re enthusiastic about the possibility of welcoming many of you to our Workshare community for the upcoming season!

Field Share

Full Share trade: 4 hours of work each week
Time: 9 am to 1pm or 12 pm to 4 pm

Field Share folks contribute to various tasks such as harvest, weeding, planting, and more to ensure the smooth operation of our daily activities. In exchange for a Full Share (valued at $1000), we kindly request 4 hours of your time each week. The tasks are not overly challenging, but it does require being in good shape (or having the enthusiasm to regain it) and a willingness to actively participate. Be prepared for activities like squatting, kneeling, bending, etc., and having the ability to lift 40lbs independently is certainly advantageous. Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with harvesting; we’ll guide you through the process.

Shifts start promptly at 9 am & 12 PM, so please arrive early if you need a few minutes for restroom use and preparation. Consistency and making a season-long commitment (spanning 22 weeks from May 15 to October 15) are crucial. Arriving on the same day and at the same time is highly valued. While we understand that unforeseen circumstances like vacations or illness may arise, the key is dependability. We’re seeking individuals committed to being here each week or those who communicate in advance if they need to miss a session (we can accommodate that), and who inform us promptly about sickness or any potential delays.

MARKET SHARE

FULL Share trade: 5.5 hours of work each week
Time: SATURDAY 9 am to 2:30 pm

Market Share folks will be working at the East Falls Farmers Market each Saturday. Choose 8 Saturdays between April 27 and December 7 when you can commit to being at the market, and in return, you’ll receive a $550 share. Select dates wisely, as we’ll be counting on your presence. The tasks involve lifting (40+ lbs) and prolonged standing. It’s essential to pick days you can absolutely attend, as our team relies on your dedication.

Please be aware that market workshare extends through the noon hour, so members should plan for either an early lunch (before 9 am) or a late lunch (after 2:30 pm). Additionally, be prepared to get wet; bring waterproof boots and rain gear if needed. If interested, market share members may be asked to handle some harvesting or weeding tasks on the farm, don’t worry if you’re unfamiliar – we’ll guide you through it.

Dependability is of utmost importance, and making a commitment for the days you sign up for is even more critical than for the field crew. With fewer market folks, any absence is more noticeable, so your consistent presence is highly valued.

Must have reliable transportation to and from the market. If you live close to the farm a ride-along may be an option.
