Grandiflora Flower Farm Fresh Flower CSA

CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture”. Our flower CSA works the same way as popular vegetable CSAs. A member typically joins in the winter/early spring before the growing season starts by purchasing a “share”. Their purchase helps the farm buy seeds and other supplies for the year and receive produce throughout the season  in return for their investment.

For investing in our fresh flower CSA,  shareholders will receive one wrapped bouquet of our premium, locally grown flowers each week along with a packet of floral preservative. After picking up flowers at our pre-determined drop-off location, they simply fill a vase at home with fresh water, stir in floral preservative, snip the ends of the flower stems, and place the bouquet in the vase for a beautiful and cheery addition to their home or office!

Grandiflora offers half-season and full-season shares for purchase.Our half- season share costs $145 (tax included). Half-season shareholders will receive flower bouquets for 8 weeks. Our full-season share costs $275 (tax included), full-season shareholders will receive flower bouquets for 16 weeks.

TERMS & CONDITIONS

By purchasing a share in our fresh flower CSA, for yourself or as a gift for someone else, you agree to the following terms and conditions:

SEASON START DATES

I understand that the start date of each CSA season is flexible, based on seasonal conditions and product availability. I am aware the 2020 season is expected to start the second week of June. I am also aware that Grandiflora Flower Farm will communicate via email to inform all members of updates and changes to the official start date, and that it is my responsibility to contact the farm via email if I am not receiving notifications near the projected CSA start date.

PICKING UP MY SHARE

I understand that my share will be delivered weekly to the specified pick up location. If I am out of town or unable to pick up my CSA for any reason, I understand that it is my responsibility to find a substitute to collect my share.  If I am unable to pick up my share I will entitle a friend to do so. I understand that if my share is not picked up within the designated time, I forfeit that share and that it will be donated at the discretion of the farmer. I will not receive credit or a refund for any shares that I do not pick up. Pick up time parameters are set for the entirety of the season.

I agree to not arrive early or late to the pick up location expecting my share to be available. I understand that the pick up location is also a place of business, and that I am not to interrupt or distract the staff in the course of their normal duties. *There will be pick up locations in Kuna, Nampa and Meridian

VACATION WEEKS

I understand that there are two set vacation weeks built into the CSA Season: the week of July 4th, and the week of Labor Day. I understand that my share will not be available on those designated dates and that I will receive reminders about the specific dates those vacation weeks occur in my weekly email from Grandiflora Flower Farm.If I am out of town on a week that is not a set vacation week, I understand I am responsible for sending a friend or family member to pick up my flower arrangement.

SHARING THE RISK

I understand that as a member, I share in both the bounty and the risks of farming. I understand that the risks include poor harvests due to unfavorable weather or pests, or the total loss of all crops due to a natural disaster such as fire, flood, or drought.

COMMUNICATION

I understand email is how Grandiflora Flower Farm will communicate CSA members of updates and changes concerning CSA shares. By signing up for the CSA, I understand that I will be added to the weekly email list, and I agree to add grandifloraflowerfarm@gmail.com to my email contacts.

Grandiflora Flower Farm will not be held responsible for miscommunications due to our e-mails going to your Spam folder or Promotions tab. I will notify the farm immediately if I do not receive an e-mail receipt of my payment or my weekly CSA emails.

PAYMENT

I understand that when I sign up and pay for my share, I have secured my place in the CSA for the respective season. There are no refunds, either full or partial, for cancellation of my CSA once purchased. Members may choose to find an alternate person to buy out the rest of the season’s share, and the share ownership will be transferred to the alternate person. The alternate person will pay the original shareholder directly. I understand that I am responsible for informing Grandiflora Flower Farm if such a transfer occurs.
