We’re offering a new Flower and Herb Share next summer for anyone who wants to enjoy sustainably-grown flowers and herbs without purchasing a vegetable share.
The Flower and Herb Share includes full access to our two herb gardens and our flower garden. Sharers will receive a quart-size mason jar at the first pick up to fill with about two dozen stems (flowers and the exact number of stems per week will vary depending on what is blooming). The farmers will provide weekly information about what is available to harvest.
This share is ideal for those who might grow their own produce; who use a variety of herbs for cooking, drying, medicinal remedies, soapmaking and assorted crafts; and anyone who enjoys cutting and assembling their own flower arrangements. If you have a Stearns Farm summer vegetable share and would like to be able to harvest more flowers than are included, the Flower and Herb Share would enable you to do so. It also makes a great holiday, birthday, or special occasion gift.
The 2020 Flower and Herb Share consists of ten pickups, beginning the week after July 4 for $120 plus a $10 membership fee. Sharers will be able to pick their herbs and flowers on Tuesdays or Fridays from 10am-7pm, or on Saturdays from 8am-12pm. There is no work hour requirement for the 2020 Flower and Herb Share.
