The third season of the Central Brooklyn Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) will begin Thursday, June 14th, and continue every Thursday through November 8th. The official word: “‘Our CSA’s mission is to ‘make fresh, healthy produce, direct from the farmer available and accessible to any Central Brooklyn resident, regardless of economic status,’ said Joel Berg, the Coalition’s executive director. In addition to fresh, organic, affordable vegetables, the Central Brooklyn CSA will once again be offering an optional fruit share to its members. Each member receives a ‘share of vegetables:a full share will feed 3-4 people and a half-share will feed 1-2 people depending on your typical diet. We only have a limited amount of shares available for everyone, so don’t wait to purchase your share. To ensure that our shares are affordable for everyone, we offer flexible payment options for low-income households, and SNAP (formerly known as ‘Food Stamps’) benefits are also accepted to purchase vegetable and fruit shares….This year the Central Brooklyn CSA will be partnering with Windflower Farm, a small organic farm in Valley Falls, located in the Taconic hills between the Hudson River and the Vermont border.” The shares will be available for pick-up at Hebron Seventh Day Adventist Church, at 1256 Dean Street at the corner of New York Avenue, and members will be able to pick up their shares from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings. The deadline to purchase shares is May 4th. Contact details: CentralBrooklynCSA@gmail.com; or call 212-825-0028 for a membership application; or go to the website for an application.
