Join a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) winter share through Wolf Pine Farm in Alfred.  The B Well program has arranged for a discounted rate ($100 off) for the first 40 Bates employees who sign up.  The shares will be delivered right to Bates once every three weeks throughout the winter. The share should be enough food to meet the vegetable needs of 2 adults who eat vegetables with most meals or a larger family who cooks less frequently. The cost is $450 (after the discount) from November to April. That comes to less than $20 per week.  To make this process even easier for you, the shares can be paid for through payroll deduction split up over 5 paychecks (November through March).  If you are interested in the payroll deduction option please fill out this form and send it to HR.
