Covid-19 Update regarding our CSA location

We’re excited to be able to offer a reliable source of fresh local and organic produce during this challenging time!

Due to social distancing, our pickup location will be outdoors (a member’s backyard) until such time as the Forest Hills Jewish Center can reopen. Her home is close to Queens Blvd, and very close to FHJC. The first week of June, we’ll send the address to everyone who signs up.
At the Jewish Center, pick ups are from 5-8 pm. During the time period of  outdoor pickups, we will need to pick up shares in the morning. Please email us if the earlier time presents a problem for you and we will work something out.

We are sad to say goodbye to Golden Earthworm, our farm partner for the past ten years, but due to circumstances with their land they were not able to offer us the amount of shares we need for our membership.  We are happy to say that we will be working with Garden of Eve Organic Farm. Our pickups are now Wednesdays, from 5-8 pm.   There are many new options, including eggs and flowers and an option for a smaller share.  Details listed on 2019 Spring-Fall Season
