SPRING-FALL 2017 Registration is now OPEN!
Shares will be delivered on Tuesday evenings for 24 weeks, from June 6th through November 21, to the Crystal Room of the Forest Hills Jewish Center. (No pick up week of July 4th)
VEGETABLE SHARES are certified organic, locally grown seasonal vegetables from Golden Earthworm Organic Farm.
For vegetable shares, you may purchase a FULL share or a HALF share . A FULL share can be for one household or can be shared between two households.
If you choose to split your full share only ONE person will sign up for the FULL Share and indicate who you will be sharing with. You will pick up the full share on a weekly basis, but you will need to coordinate with the other household who will pick up the box and how the vegetables will be divided.
HALF SHARE is another option for smaller households. You will be assigned to pick up the full amount of vegetables EVERY OTHER WEEK. “A week” and “B week” are clearly marked on the volunteer sign up sheet, you’ll be assigned A or B based on what you sign for, so plan carefully.(see sign up sheet for details)
FRUIT SHARES include fresh, seasonal fruit from Briermere Farms. Since Long Island weather conditions do not allow for organic tree fruit, Briermere Farms grows tree fruit responsibly using as little spray as possible. Berries are included this year, as well as apples, peaches and pears. The fruit share will be 18 weeks,from July through October.
OPTIONAL ADD-ON SHARES we will be offering this year include BEAN, GRAIN, and FLOUR Shares from Purcell Mountain Organics. Detailed information on these different options is below.
Our CSA (like most CSAs) require our members to volunteer each season. We mainly need volunteers to staff our pick-ups on Tuesdays- either evenings , or mid day for truck unloading. If you can’t commit to volunteering on a Tuesday, you can sign up for another comparable task. If you are able to sign up for a volunteer shift on a Tuesday , please do not sign up for an alternative task. We use an online sign up website. Members who do not show up to their chosen volunteer slot, and do not make it up with another slot/job may be excluded from joining the CSA for the following season. If you are unable to volunteer, we are offering a limited number of non/volunteering slots. You may choose this option on the volunteer sign up sheet. You will be billed an additional $75.
We subsidize a limited number of low-income shares. If you would like to apply for a low-income share, or if you have any other financial questions, please contact our core group at email@example.com
