“I spent two great seasons working for John at Tinicum CSA along the banks of the beautiful Delaware River. Each day we worked hard and faced new problems John and the crew solved as a team. We earned many new lessons and experiences, funny moments, and the joy of growing and eating amazing food. John always made me feel valued and that he cared that my time at Tinicum CSA was not just about getting the day’s tasks done, but also about making sure I was building knowledge and skills about small-scale vegetable farming, that I could take with me to become my own independent farmer. I am grateful to have been able to spend time in such a beautiful place working hard, learning, laughing, and growing some incredible produce at Tinicum CSA. It was a truly rewarding and meaningful experience.” – Joe, 2021 – 2022

“Working outside with my hands in the earth is a true gift. At Tinicum CSA there’s always plenty of positivity and smiles, even on the hottest days. It’s a joy to be part of a team involved in the entire growing process and being able to share the bounty with the community first hand brings it all together for me.” – Sarah, 2022

“Working at Tinicum was such a special experience. Our crew really found a rhythm of hard work and laughs. John took his time to teach us how to do new and complex tasks, while also believing in our ability to work independently. This created a great environment to grow my agricultural skills.” – Elliott, 2022

“Working at Tinicum CSA, I’ve learned so much about farming, food, community, and even about myself. Farming makes you bond with your co-workers too, I always felt like I was a part of a close-knit team. It’s a fantastic experience, and working here I’ve met some of the most genuine, interesting, and caring people I know! It’s hard work, but it’s incredibly rewarding.” – Stephen, 2020 – 2022
