ORGANIZATION: New Entry Sustainable Farming Project

  • 1 person is interested

Help represent New Entry Food Hub in your community.

Between the week of June 13 th and the week of October 24th (for a total of 20 weeks) New Entry CSA works with farmers to design a weekly box of freshly harvested, all-local, in-season fruit and vegetables. New Entry delivers the shares to the site at the designated time and day each week. New Entry CSA provides all necessary materials at pick-up locations, including signs with instructions for CSA members and a weekly check-off list with CSA member names.

CSA Site Coordinators are responsible for meeting the New Entry driver each week and helping set up the share boxes, greeting CSA members as they arrive at the pick up location, making sure that they receive the correct share type or CSA Your Way order, being a friendly face to our customers, and storing the empty CSA bins at the end of the pick up window.

In the event that a CSA member does not come to claim his or her CSA share within pick-up hours, the CSA Site Coordinator becomes responsible for that share. You may distribute the share to friends, families, coworkers, etc. as you see fit.

All Site Coordinators receive a free New Entry traditional box share in gratitude for your help!

About New Entry Sustainable Farming Project

Mission Statement

New Entry, an initiative of Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, works locally, regionally, and across the country to strengthen local food systems by supporting new farmers. We serve and collaborate with the people, communities, and organizations in Massachusetts, the Northeast, and beyond! The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project’s (New Entry) mission is to foster resilience in local, regional and national food systems by training a new generation of farmers to produce food that is nutritious, culturally connected and accessible to all individuals. In doing this work, we develop economic opportunities for new farmers, generate new knowledge, and facilitate connections to the land to build thriving communities.

Description

In 1998, New Entry was launched by Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy in order to develop a cost-effective strategy to integrate recent immigrants and refugees with farming backgrounds into Massachusetts agriculture. In 2007, New Entry conducted a broad environmental analysis of the burgeoning food movement and expanded its target audience to beginning farmers of all backgrounds with a desire to grow food to create a resilient local food economy. The initiative was developed as a broad partnership and since its inception, New Entry has fostered collaborative partnerships with farm organizations, community groups and academic institutions to expand our capacity to address a broad range of issues related to beginning farming. New Entry has expanded its programs over the years to a point where today we serve local, statewide, and national audiences through comprehensive farmer training and technical assistance, land access, and direct market support programs; facilitation of collaborative partnerships; and national technical assistance and resource sharing with other land-based and experiential beginning farmer training organizations.
