Our CSA's mission is to "make fresh, sustainable produce, direct from the farmer available and accessible to any Central Brooklyn resident, regardless of economic status."
Each member receives a full "share" of vegetables every week: a full share will feed 3-4 people; or a half "share," which is a full share picked up bi-weekly, may feed 1-2 people. To ensure that our shares are affordable for everyone, we offer flexible payment options for low-income households, plus you can use your SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) benefits to purchase shares.
Our farm partner is Windflower Farm. Windflower Farm is a small family farm located in Taconic Hill country, between the Hudson River and the Vermont border. Ted and Jan Blomgren have been growing organic vegetables and cut flowers for shareholders in New York City for over ten years.
Distribution is every Thursday from June 14th through November 8th (22 weeks) at the Hebron SDA Church located at 1256 Dean Street (On the corner of New York Avenue) in Brooklyn, from 5:00-7:30pm.
To purchase shares, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (212) 825-0028 with any questions. You can also visit our website at www.CentralBrooklynCSA.wordpress.com to download the application.
