Dear Woodland Gardens Box Members and New Subscribers,
Spring is here! We are so excited about our main growing season starting, and all the positive changes around the farm. We have new acreage in production, varieties to trial, and exciting projects planned for this year. We are thankful for the box members – all of who add to our continued success.
The purpose of this note is to determine who would like to remain in or begin with our weekly produce box program. The spring box program begins in April, and ends late November, depending on weather.Please let us know by email (preferred) or phone (803-767-1180) if you would like to join or continue with our produce box program. We hope to confirm all members by April 1st. In your confirmation email, please let us know the following:
Cell phone number
Email address(es) to add to mailing list, if not already on
Eggs? ($6 per dozen per week)
Flowers? ($8 per week)
As usual, the two pick-up locations are as follows:

1355 Athens Road
Winterville, GA 30683

Cost of Produce Box
The weekly price of the produce box will be between $25.00 and $30.00 per week, payable every four weeks, in advance. Checks are accepted and there will be a bank envelope at the White’s house for collection, or we will take payment at the farm. We also have a Paypal link on our website.
Eggs and Flowers
In addition, members may sign up to add flowers ($8 / week) or eggs ($6 / dozen / week) to their subscription box, in advance. Please indicate in your renewal if you would like to add either flower or egg shares.
Please make sure to check off your name on the list when you pick up your box, and when you make payment. This helps us sort out missed boxes. Please return your empty boxes the following week so we can re-use.
The reason we fluctuate the price is to give us some flexibility to add variety and quantity during our most productive months, and we think this variety really adds to the program. While we usually know generally when that will be, we are weather dependent.
If you are headed out of town and do not want your box one week, please let us know so we may donate your produce. Or, feel free to ask a friend or a neighbor to pick up for you. If a friend picks up your box on a payment day, please let us know if we should expect payment on your behalf from someone else so we can correctly credit your payment.
Missed or canceled produce boxes shall not be refunded or credited from month to month, except in unusual circumstances. Please do not sign up for our produce box if you cannot remain in the program throughout the season. We have detailed planting plans to accommodate each member.
We appreciate your support very much. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions throughout the season, and all suggestions are always welcome. I hope to see you soon at the pick up locations! If you would like to come visit the farm, just contact me.
