Welcome to the Greenwood Heights CSA

 

Sign up for the 2020 CSA Season Here!

Founded in 2007, The Greenwood Heights CSA has been providing farm-fresh, organic produce to the Greenwood Heights and South Slope neighborhoods for over 10 years.  We’ve partnered with farmers in the Hudson Valley and community organizations to bring together farmers and the community, making a direct link from the farm to the table.

We are a neighborhood CSA run by our own members. A voluntary core group of members takes on much of the administrative management of the CSA. This includes signing up new members, collecting member payments, running the distribution site, and planning community-building or educational events.  We gladly trade our services for fresh, delicious food.

Vegetable and egg shares are provided by Hearty Roots Community Farm.  This family-owned farm is located in the Hudson Valley.  They are certified organic and they pride themselves on their sustainable farming practices.  Hearty Roots grows dozens of varieties of produce, chosen for their excellent flavor.  Every week, members can expect to pick up between 7-10 varieties of veggies per delivery.  The egg share is optional.  The eggs come in beautiful shades of brown, blue, and green and their bright orange yolks are delicious. A fruit share, also optional, includes a variety of fruit from Hudson Valley farms, an average of two varieties of fruit per delivery.  Hearty Roots sources the fruit share from a handful of orchards and fruit growers in the Hudson Valley, including Mead Orchard and Samascott Orchard.  Fruit availability varies from season to season, but you can expect Apples, Peaches, Blueberries, Pears, Nectarines, Raspberries, Cherries, Cider, and more!  Fruit shares begin in July.

 

The 2020 Season is Saturday June 6  –  Saturday Oct. 31st   (22 weeks)

The CSA distribution traditionally takes place from 9:30am to 11am on Saturday mornings at Slope Park, on 6th Avenue between 18th & 19th Streets in Brooklyn. This year we are still working on a coronavirus distribution plan, but we aim to keep around out traditional time frame, but please bear with us as we all figure out how to manage the new normal.

Weekly vegetable share, 22 weeks:  $29 / week  (five monthly payments of $128, or single payment of $640)
Biweekly vegetable share, 11 weeks: $31 / week (five monthly payments of $68, or single payment of $340)

The Fine Print

-A $20 Core Group fee is added to each membership.
-Members will have the option to pay for the vegetable shares in full or in 5 monthly installments (opposed to 2 or 3 usually offered).  The egg / fruit options must be paid in full (that’s just how the software handles it)
-Distribution details are subject to change, we will not be picking our vegetables this years and instead items will be boxed. We are working on shift details, which may included deliveries to members.
