- Half share: $12.50/week = $300* for the 24-week season, for approximately 4-5 vegetables per box. Ideal for a couple or individual.
Installment plan: Payments, including for donated shares, can be made through installments, by sending signed, post-dated checks. We will deposit each check at the beginning of each month. For information about the Installment Plan, Contact email@example.com or Julia Sendor at (413) 884-5224.

We encourage all HarvestShare participants to share the work of growing the produce for at least two workdays throughout the season, which should include joining us for a potluck meal (so bring a dish to share) and, often, cooking demonstrations, pizza parties, music, poetry readings, and other forms of fun. Workdays are Saturdays 9-1, followed by a potluck meal, and Tuesdays 5-8 p.m., followed by a potluck meal.
The purpose is to fellowship with one another, not merely to pick up a box. We will say a prayer of thanksgiving for the food together before it is distributed and the potluck meal is shared.
