Flushing CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a volunteer co-operative group of local Flushing (Queens) residents working with Golden Earthworm Organic Farm and JustFood to bring fresh, locally-grown, organic produce to our community.
Weekly, for 6 months of the year, fresh just picked vegetables are delivered to Flushing Town Hall, where member can pick them up. The selection of vegetables, and the quantities vary by the season, but include tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, beets and other root vegetables, onions, leeks and garlic, as well as fresh greens–for salad and for cooking, herbs and strawberries.
Members volunteer their time each week at the distribution.
In addition to the growing season shares, there is also a winter share–of winter “keepers” like cabbage, kale, and root vegetables–once every 3 weeks.
The Flushing CSA has been in existence since 2012.
Flushing CSA is open to all. Shares cost a total of $565 and run for 26 weeks (June-November). Members pick up their shares Thursdays between 5:00-8:00 pm at Flushing Town Hall, located at 137-35 Northern Blvd. in Flushing, NY 11354. We are usually in the garden area, located to the right of the main entrance of the building on Northern Blvd.
