Title: last call for farm spot subsidized shares
Post by: jen on April 13, 2009, 07:59:48 PM
Hi all:

We have 2 subsidized slots available and will be accepting applications for the
next two weeks. Please email farmspot@gmail.com and put subsidized shares in
the subject line. Details are below.

We will be offering vegetable shares only this year (fruit shares will be at
their full price for now) due to funding for the subsidies. As with previous

Income verification is on the honor system - we won't ask for proof of your
income. These are our general discounted share income guidelines, taken from the
Self-Sufficiency Standard for the City of New York. If you're not sure you fit
into these levels, ask us:
One Adult: $24,583
One Adult, One child: $42,136
One Adult, Two Children: $54,961
Two Adults, Two Children: $60,028
Shares may be split among members, but there are no half shares.

You'll get 26 weeks of vegetables for $325 (a minimum of a $50 deposit, and
monthly payments as needed).
Deposits are due as soon as possible. www.farmspot.org.
