About Local Roots NYC
Local Roots NYC is a new organization dedicated to connecting New York City with local farmers and their food through CSA programs. Local Roots NYC hosts bi-monthly supper clubs and provides recipes, and other tips to make cooking at home easier. More information can be found at www.localrootsnyc.org/.
CSA, which stands for Community Supported Agriculture, allows city residents to have access to fresh produce grown by a regional farmer. CSA members purchase a “share” of produce from a local farm. Shares of produce are brought to the same site for members to pick up each week. By joining a CSA, members learn what foods are in season in the North East, support small, local farmers, discover new varieties of produce, try out new recipes, eat healthier, and reconnect with their food.
