planning out a Suburban Garden-Share/COOP/CSA....looking for ideas,direction,insight.

Does anyone in the group currently run a CSA, garden-coop, yard/garden-share or similar endeavor? or have links/info on ones pertaining to how they organize? what is the arrangement between owners/facilitators and members.
We're looking for existing models as examples to help us structure our garden-share this year.. as in the organizational/administrative aspects.: gardener/volunteer agreement, rules, schedules,division of work, costs, duties, produce, share buy-ins and all that good stuff~

we were a fierce army of "3-ish" last year so none of this was an issue, but i'm getting more inquiries each day now so feel we must firm up the general details of participating Pronto!. we hope to add other members yards in the 'farm' as well for those who wish that. we'd be sort of a 'decentralized garden share'  then i guess..we'll see..details would vary at that point (by yard/owner)

this is a home-based garden(mine) so it differs from some 'community gardens' where a town/city own the land and people just tend "their"plot... i posed this question,in a bit more detail on a forum post at permies.com
