COMMUNITY NEWS: Local Roots CSA - Winter Season

I just got the following info from Local Roots about their winter CSA . . . enjoy!

Our winter CSA is a great way to provide families with locally grown produce and our winter season features vegetables from our farmer's greenhouses; this means spinach, kale, and swiss chard in the winter season when the season usually only brings us root vegetables. The shares may include everything from vegetables, fruits, meat, eggs, grain and beans, juice, cheese, and bread, all based on your preferences and all from regional farms that use healthy growing practices with pick-up in once convenient location. 

The CSA’s unique model is designed to offer greater convenience, product variety, value, and payment flexibility.  The winter season runs from December-February with members paying upfront for 12 weeks as opposed to the 24 weeks in other CSAs.  Membership applications are due November 27, 2011 for locations in Carroll Gardens and Boerum Hill.  Information on products, farms, and how to sign up can be found at

About CSA
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.
