Live Power Offerings
Season: The season runs from the first week in May to the last week in November. We hope people can join us for the entire season, but if there is space, signups are accepted throughout the season.
Share Size: The garden share is based on a half bushel basket which will feed a family of 2 to 3, depending on eating habits. Individuals are welcome to share with another person. The vegetable share will provide a seasonal variety of produce each week from the beginning of May until Thanksgiving week.
Below is a table showing the schedule and quantities planned for the garden share.

Of course, each season is different. For example this is 2012’s Garden Share Harvest Totals.
The farmers will harvest what is ready at each season. Early spring baskets are usually smaller with mostly greens and early roots, then peas and broccoli, then increasing in quantity and variety with corn, squash, tomatoes, melons, potatoes, roots and greens as peak summer harvest is reached in August and September. Fall harvests are also bountiful with roots, storage crops, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and greens. The baskets will increase in quantity and variety as the weather warms and more types of vegetables are ripe.
Blueberry Share from Filigreen Farm. Biodynamic blueberries come from Filigreen in Boonville. Due to the drought, Filigreen Farm will not be offering blueberry shares this season. If and when they have any blueberries, they will let us know and they will be available as a bulk amount to our members.
Fruit Share from Filigreen Farm. Filigreen Farm periodically offers bulk fruit including Demeter certified biodynamic peaches, apples, pluots, plums, and table grapes for the months of August, September, October and November. Also available from Filigreen Farm is Demeter certified biodynamic olive oil.
Monday is harvest day for Covelo members.
Covelo: Vegetables are ready for Covelo members at the farm from noon on; each member will have 2 baskets and burlaps that they rotate each week. The baskets will be made up and ready to pick up by noon on Mondays.
Missed Pickups: If there is a week when you will be unable to pick up your produce at the scheduled time, please contact Gloria, firstname.lastname@example.org or 707-983-8196 to make other arrangements. Any produce that is not picked up by Tuesday night without notice given will be passed on to someone in need. If someone else is going to pick up your vegetables, please let us know who they are and their contact information and be sure they thoroughly understand the directions and timing. Thanks.
