Welcome to the Greenwood Heights CSA

Sign up for the 2019 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.

The fruit share, also optional, includes a variety of fruit from Hudson Valley farms, an average of two varieties of fruit per delivery.  We source 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 2019 Season is Saturday June 8  –  Saturday Nov. 2nd  (22 weeks)

The CSA distribution takes place from 9am to 11am on Saturday mornings at Slope Park, on 6th Avenue between 18th & 19th Streets in Brooklyn.

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 2 or 3 monthly installments.  The egg / fruit options must be paid in full (that’s just how the software handles it)
-We will offer an early bird discount for vegetable share sign ups before April 15th. Vegetable shares paid in full will receive $10 off for weekly shares or $5 off for the biweekly shares.
-Some returning members are due a credit for a bonus share that they were due last year, which we gave them the option to instead turn into a credit toward their 2019 share.  We will be contacting those members directly with coupon codes for their $$ due.
