What To Expect With MEG’s Instant Garden CSA Membership
Like many CSA memberships, there’s a lot of planning that takes place before the growing season begins. MEG’s Instant Garden CSA membership is no exception to this. However, we go about it differently than other CSA programs since most of the growing will take place at your designated location. Below is a typical sequence of events for the CSA program.
Sign-Up for MEG’s Instant Garden CSA Membership
The membership experience begins when you signup through our website here. It only takes a few minutes to tell us some basic information as well as your favorite edible plants.
After you submit the signup form, we’ll contact you to verify information and generate a plant schedule for the growing season. We also visit your location to determine the best spot for your plants as well as locations of water and an electrical outlet. At the end of the site visit, we’ll schedule a date for delivery of the equipment and first round of plants.
The long awaited day has arrived! On delivery day, we’ll set up the automated watering system, any necessary equipment and plants. We’ll also get you familiarized with the automation equipment and answer any questions.
Risk-Free Trial and Continuing Service
The first month costs only $1. Once you fall in love with our system and decide to continue service, we’ll get you setup for the rest of the growing season. You’ll have two options at this point. Pay the rest up front at a discounted rate or pay monthly. If you’re not totally smitten by the awesomeness of this growing system and you’re thinking “I’d rather eat brussels sprouts than look at this automated and effortless growing system”, we’ll pick up our plants and thank you for trying.
The Growing Season
Cool-season plants will start the season off in May. Monthly deliveries and checkups will follow. Once the night time temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees Fahrenheit, we’ll start to introduce the warm-season plants like tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. This is typically in the early part of June. More warm-season plants will arrive during the end of June and July. As we approach September, Any finished plants will be removed and cool-season plants will arrive again to finish off the growing season. At the beginning of October, we’ll return to pick up the remaining plants and equipment.
