Flushing CSA

Flushing CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a volunteer cooperative 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 members pick their share. The selection and quantity varies by the season, but include tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, beets, onions, leeks and garlic as well as fresh greens — for salad and for cooking — herbs and strawberries.

Members also volunteer their time to help at the weekly distribution.

In addition to the regular summer/fall season shares, there is also a winter share–of winter “keepers” like cabbage, kale, and root vegetables–once every 3 weeks.

Flushing CSA has been in existence since 2012.

Flushing CSA is open to all. The summer/fall season lasts about 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.
