As some of you know, I'm a member of the Roxbury Farm core group in New
York City; Frank Scheib (see below) is a core group member in the Albany
area. He's not yet online, and asked me to post the question that follows

responses. So if you have experience with CSA deliveries to a coop site,
please cc me in your response.
