Our two pickup locations are given below:

Hollywood Farmers Market at the Hollywood Shopping Center 9801 Rhode Island Ave College Park, MD on Saturdays 9 am - 1 pm.
Our Growing Practices
We are proud to practice no-till farming methods. Every spring, our growing beds are amended with a layer of fresh compost. By not tilling the soil every year, it maintains its structure, which helps house and feed the various beneficial biology in the ground. This method of farming reduces weed pressure, so we can avoid using any herbicides. In addition to compost, we may use other organic fertilizers, such as alfalfa meal, to add nutrients to our soil.
Our flowers are completely herbicide and pesticide free!
There are no refunds once the CSA has started. We promise to do our best to provide you with a beautiful bouquet each week. But despite our best efforts, the quantity and type of flowers available may vary from week-to-week due to extreme weather, insects, or other production factors.By joining our CSA, you are agreeing to share the reward of any abundance and the risk of crop failure with us other CSA members.
In the unlikely event of a crop failure, our procedure is as follows: If only a small portion of flowers fail, we compensate by filling your bouquet with other flowers grown on the farm that are ready for harvest at that time. In more extreme cases, we may not be able to deliver any product in some weeks. We may cover for a crop loss by buying in from other local farmers. We will tell you when we do this.
Pick Up Instructions
You are responsible for picking up your bouquet each week from one of the two locations.
Pick up your bouquet within the stated time frame.
If you cannot pick-up your bouquet, you must arrange for someone else to pick it up for you. You are responsible for explaining the pick-up location and procedures to your substitute. We may be able to provide earlier pick up on Friday for extenuating circumstances.
If you wish to change your drop site, you must email us at least 24 hours in advance. Bouquets that are not retrieved within the pick-up time will be sold at the farmers market or donated.
