I just got an email about the following opportunity to join a CSA for those of you in Cobble Hill/Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, Williamsburg, or Tribeca . . .
The Local Roots CSA is now accepting members for the 2011 Summer Season!
Local Roots is a unique CSA model designed to offer greater convenience for its members with features like enhanced product variety and payment flexibility. Members have the opportunity to pick and choose product shares, allowing members the convenience of picking up a week's worth of fresh, locally grown groceries at one distribution location. We offer vegetable, fruit, duck, beef, egg, grain/bean, juice, and/or bread options. Our summer season runs from June - August, so members pay upfront for 12 weeks of produce as opposed to 24 weeks (don't worry, we'll have a Fall CSA as well). By paying for half a season upfront, we hope this will be a bit more flexible for our members. CSA locations are in Cobble Hill/Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, Williamsburg, and Tribeca.
