Is your local CSA full? well there is another one that just opened up you can jump on. CSA Summer shares are now available in Brooklyn. Come by Build it Green! NYC on Thursday, June 14th from 2-6 and sign up for the Full Plate Farms Collective’s summer CSA. They will be signing up members until they fill up but this is a great chance to meet your farmer and see the food in person.
The Full Plate Farm Collective has been working together for over 8 years to bring, organic, and biodynamic vegetables to 500 households in the Ithaca NY area. This past winter they shared the taste of the Finger Lakes with Brooklyn. The summer share will include certified organic and biodynamic salad greens, melons, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, beets, squash, broccoli, cabbage, and much, much more. Members will also enjoy our weekly newsletter, filled with information about the veggies in their box, recipe ideas, and news from the farmers.
Beginning June 14th, members of the Full Plate’s Brooklyn CSA can pick up a pre-packed, 1/2 bushel box of veggies from our farms at the Build It Green! NYC warehouse in Gowanus. Shares will be delivered every other week (June 14, 28, July 12, 26, August 9, 23, September 6, 20, October 4, 18, November 1, 15). They have a very flexible pick up window and are building a cooler so that your vegetables will stay fresh. They can be picked-up anytime during business hours, beginning late-afternoon on Thursday through 5pm Sunday of each delivery week.
