Become a Neighborhood Captain

We are very excited with the success of our “neighborhood captain” program. We can’t think of a better way to connect communities to their food and each other. Each week throughout the summer we deliver boxes to pre-determined drops in neighborhoods throughout the area. Our customers love the convenience and each captain is compensated with either a free or reduced share depending on the number of members at the site. The minimum for a drop site is 5 members not including the captain and the maximum is set at 30 members. The farm does all administrative work.  Each captain is provided a checklist so that they can inventory boxes during the pick-up.

We’d love to talk with you if you’re interested in becoming a neighborhood captain. We will compensate you for your effort depending on how many members sign up at your location. Captains with 5 members will be given half off a share. Ten to 20 members entitles you to a free share. Captains with 20 to 30 members will be compensated with a vegetable share and an egg share.

We will provide you with promotional material. You are responsible for member recruitment and distributing the week’s boxes. It is helpful if you have a covered location such as a garage where shares can be stored if it’s raining. Most of our captains are present during the pick-up but this is not mandatory. Feel free to contact us if you want to become a captain or if you have more questions.
