Deadline for Flushing CSA is May 18

Do you ever wonder where your food comes from, when it was picked, what is in it, or if it is safe and nutritious? Some of us in the community have partnered with local farmers to make sure we know what we put on our family’s table. By eating smarter, we also help New York’s small farmers. Our goal is to allow Flushing residents to have direct access to high-quality, organic, super-fresh food grown locally by regional farmers.

When you become a CSA member, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a local farmer. We pay our farmer in the spring and our investment brings us 26 weeks of just-picked fruits and vegetables – delivered to our neighborhood every Thursday, from May to November, at Flushing Town Hall.

May 18th Deadline for Flushing CSA

Are you interested?  Fill out and send back our Membership Agreement by May 18, 2018.  For more information, contact us at FlushingCSA@gmail.com or (646) 801-4021.
