This makes me think of a blog post a friend pointed me to the other day. Apparently, the trendy thing in tech is to not have managers - they call it holacracy. It is a terrible idea: http://cbracy.tumblr.com/post/79876957198/the-github-debacle-and-why-holacracy-is-bullshit
We used to belong to that same CSA (i recognize the church basement) but then switched to the one run by a farmer called Joe who is at McCarren park on Saturday because it was cheaper and you could get a half share every week instead of a whole share every other week. More single people do that one I think.
quick note - it's bad luck to give a knife as a gift. when i tried to buy one for my boyfriend's birthday at brooklyn kitchen, the nice folks said "don't do that! bad luck! get a gift card!".
