Time for the Sixth Street Community Center CSA

We mentioned the other day that it's sign-up time for the 14th Street Y CSA. (Reps from the Mountain View Farm will be at the Y today, 14th Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue, from 3:30-6:30 p.m.)

Meanwhile, it's also time to register for the summer-fall season at the Sixth Street Community Center CSA.

Via the EVG box...

Our Community Supported Agriculture season will begin Tuesday, June 13! We will be working once again with Hepworth Farm located in New York's Hudson Valley. Hepworth Farm will be providing Vegetable Shares for 24 weeks and Fruit Shares for 23 weeks. Fruits include strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherries, apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines, melons, pears, apples and grapes. For a list of vegetables please click here.

In addition to produce, we will continue to offer wild Alaskan fish year-round. We will also have available Stonehouse olive oils and balsamic vinegar, organic eggs, butter, yogurt, honey, maple syrup and other specialty items. You can also join our organic raw milk and cheese club.

This season we will continue using a sliding scale payment structure that will offer subsidized shares to low-income households. Your participation supports our efforts to make healthy local organic produce accessible to all members of our community.

To sign up please download and fill out the registration form attached or register online here.

Last fall, The Village Voice named the Sixth Street CSA as the best in NYC.

The Sixth Street Community Center CSA is between Avenue B and Avenue C.
