By signing up, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the following terms and details:

  • The boxes are available for pickup every week on Thursdays between 2pm and 7pm from June 1st to October 12th, at O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE, 1565 Baldy Mountain Road.
  • O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE (OUR) commits to make our best efforts to produce a generous amount of food for the cost paid by the customer. It is understood that the customers are contracting OUR to grow and harvest what the land will provide. There is no guarantee of a specific amount or variety of food. The intent of a Community Shared Agriculture program is to share in the risk and ensure the farmer a reasonable wage for their hard work.
  • If the customer is not able to pick up their box at any time during the agreement period, s/he has these options: A) give or sell the box to a friend who can pick it up at O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE, B) donate their share to the CMS Food
    Bank Society in Mill Bay. OUR does not give refunds for un-retrieved boxes.
  • The customer may bring their own container to load with their weekly harvest. OCA will provide a box for a $20 deposit fee. This fee will be refunded at the end of the season upon return of the empty box.
