2024 Barter Membership: Whole Share, June - November

Enjoy a share of the farm's bounty -- everything from arugula to zucchini -- as part of our Barter Share program (BSP)! Barter Share is a PFP program in which volunteers interested in engaging more deeply with the work of PFP and committing to a set of responsibilities can receive a CSA share.

You must have filled out an application form and received approval to sign up for this share by the Farm Director, Emily Eder emily@farmproject.org

Participating in the Barter Share Program allows for a closer connection with the PFP community and the ability to engage more deeply with our work. All BSP members have the option to select a pick-your-own (PYO) share, which allows you to harvest your own shares from the fields and increases the amount of variety and choice. This benefit is unique to BSP members. 

Commitment for whole shares is around 66 hours over the season and runs 23 weeks from June November. Refer to your specific BSP placement for details. A standard whole share is valued at $990 plus a $50 admin fee. Barter share hours are valued at $15/hour. Therefore, the number of hours expected is calculated at $990 (price of your share) divided by $15/hour for a total of 66 hours. Unworked hours will be billed at the end of the season. You are also welcome to come for more hours if you'd like!

PFP trusts its barter share members to take this commitment seriously, and to be on time and reliable for scheduled shifts. Please notify staff in advance if you will be late or absent.

Whole shares include 10 units per pickup (an average of 10-20 lbs of food). A "unit" could be 1 head lettuce, 0.5 lb kale, 1 melon, 2 leeks, or 2 lbs potatoes.

Full season runs 23 weeks from June - November and is 10 units of food.

Pickup: You can select to pick up a share Tuesday, or Saturday at our normally scheduled CSA share distribution, OR select a PYO share in which you will harvest all of your own items after your workshare hours.

  • Tuesdays 2:30-6:30 @ PFP
  • Saturdays 9am-noon @ PFP

The fee to participate in the BSP begins at $50, you are welcome to contribute more as a donation to our food share program.
