What's a zine?A zine is a self-published booklet or pamphlet, generally created in a rough, DIY fashion and distributed amongst a small targeted audience. The topic or message of a zine is typically subversive to mainstream ideologies. A zine can give someone with something to say, a safe platform to speak their mind freely and creatively. With the pervasiveness of censorship in today's online environment, I believe we'll see a strong resurgence of zine culture! I'll go first... The Nexus Revolution Zine is created with the intent to foster a shift in mindset of what it means to be 'healthy' and 'well' in modern society; to question where science and conventional medicine may be falling short; and explore what can be learned from looking to the natural world for answers.
Where will the pick-up location be?I plan to have both a Buffalo and Southtowns pick-up location. With the revolving door of changes happening around COVID and business pauses I will wait until the dates get closer to determine specifics. The locations and pick-up procedure will be clearly communicated via email several weeks in advance of the first pick-up. I'm committed to making the process as convenient as possible for all involved. :)
I want to join, but I live overseas...will you ship internationally?"Yes!! Just send me a chat, fill out the Contact Form at the bottom of the Home Page, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know what City and Country you reside in. I will respond with a shipping quote (utilizing my USPS shipping discounts wherever applicable).
Can I purchase a single season/box?At this time, I prefer to keep the CSA as an energetically intimate journey through all four seasons with a fixed number of participates that won't fluctuate. That being said, as my energy and inventory allow I plan to offer occassional one-off pop-up style packages throughout the year! Sign up for the newsletter (form at the bottom of the Home page) and follow NEXUS on social media to be 'in the know' for those.
What if I have allergies and sensitivities?Upon sign-up I will be sending all CSA participants a short questionaire asking about known allergies or sensitivities. In addition, all ingredients will be listed on the label of the products. I'm happy to provide further detail about the brand of product, etc. upon request. If you prefer to chat about this prior to your purchase please reach out. I, myself, am quite sensitive. I seek out raw materials that are as pure as possible. I wouldn't sell anything to you that I wouldn't use myself!
A NOTE ABOUT COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITY:NEXUS is committed to using organic materials and sourcing from small, local WNY businesses wherever possible. All wild harvested plant material is sustainably and ethically gathered with love and appreciation. 10% of the 2021 CSA subscription proceeds will be donated to a local WNY organization that is working as stewards of the land with an eye towards advancing sustainable farming, biodiversity, or permaculture practices. In the coming weeks, I will be reaching out to my community for suggestions of organizations in need. The recipient, once selected, will be featured on this site.
