The Flower CSA runs for 15 weeks, from July-October. Each week, you will be able to pick-up your flowers at Staten Island Urby. You may choose either a Thursday Evening or Saturday Morning pick up time. Thursday pick ups will take place at Urby Eats cafe at 7 Navy Pier Ct. from 6pm-8pm. Saturday Morning pick ups will take place at our Farmstand from 9am-12pm. Your flowers will be waiting for you when you arrive!
Members receive the first pick and the guarantee of a weekly bouquet, which might sell out at market. In times of bounty, members may receive extra items or increased volume as a token of our gratitude.
WEATHER, CROP AVAILABILITY, AND THE RISKS OF SUSTAINABLE FARMING
Empress Green's farmers have been farming for several seasons. We are confident that our operation is well equipped to satisfy the needs of our CSA program.
However, farming is a business with inherent risks: weather conditions, equipment failure, unforeseen pest and plant disease issues, and even occasionally, farmer error, can all negatively affect crop yields. While we will take all practical steps to mitigate these risks, we cannot reimburse, refund, or otherwise compensate for crop failures or low yields.
By becoming a member of our CSA program you are agreeing that these risks are included in CSA membership.
REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS
Membership in our CSA is a commitment to purchase and receive produce for an entire growing season. We generally do not offer refunds or allow cancellations, however we will consider exceptions on a case-by-case, basis for the following issues: Major loss of household income due to unexpected unemployment or disability, death or disaster, unexpected relocation, and unresolved customer service issues. A $50 administrative fee will be deducted from any refund issued. No refunds for the current season will be issued after September 1. Refunds given are prorated to the number of weeks remaining.
If you can’t make it to pick-up your Flower CSA, you may gift your week's share to a friend. Please read the section below on "sending someone in your place." There are no refunds for missed pick-ups or forgotten shares, we donate all leftovers.
SENDING SOMEONE IN YOUR PLACE TO PICK-UP YOUR SHARE
If you are unavailable to pick up your bouquet we encourage you to send someone in your place. Please give your substitute thorough instructions. Make sure they know where and when the pick-up location is, and that they need to pick up the share with your name on it.
