Vegetable Plant CSA


What is a vegetable plant CSA?

Pre-buy vegetables, herbs and annual flowers for your garden in a CSA model. You, the customer, pays upfront for plants that I, The Nutritional Gardener, will custom grow for you.

What are the advantages of a CSA for plants?

Varieties are grown organically, watered with rain-watered and grown with the same care I put into plants for my own garden. I pick varieties that are well-adapted for our micro-climate. I will provide you full details of the seeds used, including vendor links and plant characteristics. You will receive your plant shares at the proper planting time, hardened off and ready to go into the ground.

Are the plants guaranteed?

My guarantee is that I will deliver to you high quality, organic plants as specified in your order details by the timeframe promised. I cannot guarantee the success or performance of the plants because of factors out of my control after I hand the plants over to you. I cannot offer a refund for plants that do not survive. I will refund your money in full if I don’t have the plants ready for you at the time promised.

How will you help me to be a successful gardener?

I will assist you with planting instructions and advice for your plants if you encounter problems. Your job is to notify me right away if you see anything that is concerning about your plants. I will provide a one-time courtesy visit to check out a problem. In addition, you will receive 15% off future consultation services for one year for any area of your landscape.

Can I substitute other plants instead of what you offer?

At this time, I am not taking custom plant orders. I am working towards allowing substitutions and custom variety orders in the future.

How do I order?

The current CSA is filled, however, contact me if you have an interest in upcoming CSA opportunities.

How do I pay?

At the time of order, you will be re-directed to Paypal to make your payment. You may pay with a Paypal account or with your credit or debit card. Once I receive payment, I will start your seeds. All payments must be received no later than 12 noon on Sunday, April 7.

When do I get my plants?

Plants will be ready for pickup between the dates of June 1-15. As we get closer to that date range, I will contact you to arrange a pickup time. Delivery may be available for locations within a 2 mile radius.
