Community Aid

The Farm Direct Coop is a not-for-profit cooperative founded for the purpose of learning about and promoting environmentally sustainable lifestyle options. These lifestyle options should be available to everyone regardless of their financial situation. The organization has been able to meet all aid requests in the past and sincerely hope we can continue to honor every request for help.

Membership fees may be worked off by putting in 7 hours at the depot (2 hours of requested volunteer time, and 5 hours for the $65.00 fee) delivery of shares, or other volunteer efforts like writing newsletter articles/researching recipes, or contributing to website content. If you are unable to physically work at the depot, there are still plenty of options.

Awards can be for small or large fruit or vegetable shares, cheese, chef, egg and late season shares

We rely on your honesty, as we do not collect financial statements. We give current and potential members the length of the enrollment process to apply for aid. The deadline for application is May 1st, 2015.

Please contact julie(at) if you’d like to apply, or use our web-based contact form.
