Groundwork Share-A-Share ™
Help share the harvest with others in our community! For the past several years, Groundwork Lawrence (GWL), one of our non-profit partners, has used their Share-A-Share model to make the CSA affordable to those at our Lawrence pick-up location. In 2011, we began partnering with GWL to expand the Groundwork Share-A-Share™ program to all of our locations.
Donations made to the Groundwork Share-A-Share ™ program will be used to partially subsidize shares for those who are unable to afford the full share price, as well as for local food pantries and other hunger-relief organizations. Anybody can donate to Groundwork Share-A-Share™, be they CSA members, businesses, or religious or community groups. Donations can be designated for your community in order to help your neighbors, or to the community of your choice. You can include a donation with your CSA registration (if you are registering on paper), or donate online.
Thanks to the generosity of 2011 CSA members and the greater community, Groundwork Lawrence was able to raise $10,000 for the Share-a-Share program in 2011. This year, our goal is to raise $15,000. Can you help us get there?

If you are experiencing financial hardship and would benefit from a payment plan or a subsidized share, or if you would like to pay using EBT/SNAP/Food Stamps, please contact us and indicate this. We are committed to making the CSA affordable to as many as possible and would be happy to discuss the options with you.
