Welcome new Members…

Hello to all of our new CSA Members this season.  We are so glad that you have decided to give Sweetwater a try this season.  We think you will be amazed at the difference you’ll see in quality and freshness of the produce.  There is just nothing like a freshly harvested head of lettuce.

We’d like to invite you to a New Member Orientation this Saturday, Oct 16th.  We will hold orientation in Tampa and in St Pete.  (See Events).  If you are unable to make the orientation, don’t worry, we will have a “Help” table set up for the first few pick-ups so we can help you through the process of pick-up and answer any questions you may have.

CSA Share pick-ups are set to begin the first week of November.  If you are picking up in Tampa you will need to decide if you are picking up on Sundays from 12-4 or Thursdays from 12-6.  St Pete members will be picking up at the Saturday Morning Market from 9:00-2:00.  Half-Membership people will pick up every other week (Week A or Week B) according to the last name on their application.  Full Membership folks will pick up every week.   Please print a full schedule for reference as some days/times may have changed due to holidays.  Go HERE for pick up schedule!

Remember to bring a reusable bag(s) for the produce.  Follow parking directions on our website (there is NO parking on Comanche Avenue in front of the farm – our neighbors may decide to tow.)  There IS parking on Comanche across the creek (get there from Hanley).  Parking is also available on Mohawk Ave.  If you still have questions please contact us.  We are looking forward to seeing a bunch of you this weekend at orientation.
