Flushing CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a volunteer cooperative based in Flushing, Queens, NY. We are a group of residents working with Garden of Eve Organic Farm and JustFood to bring fresh, locally-grown, organic produce to our community.
Every week, for 6 months of the year, fresh fruits and vegetables are delivered to the Flushing Meeting House (137-16 Northern Boulevard), 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.
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.
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 and is open to everyone.
