More Brooklyn CSAs

Central Brooklyn CSA
Our CSA’s mission is to make fresh, sustainable produce, direct from the farmer available and accessible to any Central Brooklyn resident, regardless of economic status. Our farmer, Victor, grows at El Mirador Farm in New Jersey. A participant of the New Farmer Development Project of GrowNYC, Victor specializes in exciting produce from Mexico such as epazote, papalo, tomatillos and a variety of peppers. We are so happy to partner with him and support the great farming program. Distribution occurs every Thursday from June 16th through November 10th (22 weeks) at Hebron SDA Church located at 1256 Dean Street (On the corner of New York Avenue) in Brooklyn, from 5:00-7:30pm. Applications are available at http://centralbrooklyncsa.wordpress.com/. You can also email centralbrooklyncsa@gmail.com or call 212-825-0028 ext. 210. http://centralbrooklyncsa.wordpress.com/
