Becoming a 2006 member or worksharer

Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest in joining our farm for the 2006 season as a member, volunteer or worksharer.

We will probably begin signing up members in March. We will post a message here as soon as we do, so if you would like to be one of the first to hear that we've begun taking orders, then click on the <RSSFWD:> link at the upper left of this page. Then submit your email address, and you will be notified any time we post news on this site. At any time if you wish to stop getting this notification, it is easy to be removed from the list. Our deliveries and other details about the share for 2006 should be the same as 2005, although we might raise the price by $20. You can read about those details at We will include any new information and a new order form on this page as soon as we begin taking orders.

Volunteer opportunities include office work (starting now, although we prefer a commitment of more than one day), greenhouse work (starting in February), and field work (starting in March).  Before May, our schedule is irregular, so it is best to call us to let us know you're coming (301-627-4662).

After May, we are happy to offer a share of vegetables to any adult who works 4 hours or more. This "workshare" begins in May as soon as we start distributing vegetables (we are aiming for May 9).  There is no commitment, and you do not need to sign up in advance.  Simply show up to work any weekday between 8am and 4pm, or Saturday between 8:30am and 1pm.  There are more details on our website ( and of course, we will post any changes on this weblog, should they arise.
