FlushingCSA Winter 2015 Application
We are excited to welcome the start of our 2015 season. We’re looking forward to seeing all new and returning members. Our first pickup is Thursday, May 28. As noted in the newsletter you received via email on May 21, the pickup this week will not be at Flushing Town Hall but at the Quaker Meetinghouse, 137-16 Northern Boulevard, across the street from Town Hall. The Meetinghouse is where we hosted the Meet the Farmer event in March. There is a small parking lot but please exercise care whenentering and exiting as the driveway is narrow. We will not be able to use the Flushing Town Hall parking lot for the first week’s pickup. All subsequent pickups will be in the garden area of Flushing Town Hall.
Victor, the owner of S & V Jams, will be at the first pickup. Don’t forget to bring bags or other containers for transporting your vegetables as we must keep the boxes to return to the farmer. We will have canvas Flushing CSA tote bags available for $10.
UPDATE: We regretfully are no longer to accept applications for our 2015 season. Thanks to all new and returning members. We are looking forward to seeing you at the first pickup, May 28.
Our 2015 season will begin on Thursday, May 28. The latest dates to apply are: May 28 if paying by cash or check and May 30 if paying by Dwolla or credit card. Note that the contract and payment must be received by May 23 if you wish to have a share for the first week’s pickup.
Flushing CSA extends our sincere thanks to Golden Earthworm Organic Farm and all the vendors who made our Meet The Farmer event a success. Thank you and welcome to all new and returning members. We are still accepting applications for the 2015 seasons which begins on May 28. If interested, download, complete and submit the attached application. Please contact us if you like the idea of community supported agriculture but you feel that a share is too much per week. We will try to pair you up with another who is interested in splitting a share.
FlushingCSA will participate in the United Nations Association of the United States of America 7th Annual Earth Day Celebration on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at Queens Museum of Art. Please stop by our table to say hello and get information about our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.
