im sure its on here somewhere, but im curious about something.

so i really want to start buying locally this summer, ive done some research, watched some documentaries on the importance of this..i have the list of farmers markets in town and when they open. but my questionis, ive heard that i can purchase a "share" if you will and pay a seasonal fee for a weekly basket of goodies. how do i do this? should i just go talk to someone running a stand? is there a certain amount that they do this? any info is helpful :)

Hi Breanna!
Here's the only one that I know of, somewhat locally (out of Wellington, CO). My family did this last summer. I think their only complaint was it was a little pricey. You might be able to find someone to go in on a share with you. They picked up their share each week at First United Methodist Church downtown.

thank you!
yea i was trying to do some research it, i found a price of about 125.xx for the season, which i thought wasnt too bad. thats a good idea, maybe i can get my mom to go in on it with me or something. ill have to go down to the one closest to me i think, and just ask someone for more information

Hi Breanna!

Welcome to the group. I have a friend that uses door to door organics (https://colorado.door...­. Will you do me a favor? If decide to give them a try will you let me know - I think she can send you an e-mail with a discount for the first box.
