Pickup Organic Veggies/Fruit/Eggs and Flowers every Saturday morning (9am-12noon) from August 25-Nov 24th@Mcarren Park, all the way to thanksgiving. We are moving mid-season and will have to give up our share of beautiful locally grown produce from garden of eve farm,
On the , williamsburg csa site, you would be both A and B week pick-ups, every week. $588= $42/week x 14 weeks=the entire seasons share was $955, we are selling the share at cost. please check out the websites to see the quality and quantity of the share. if you like to cook healthy meals it will be a great bargain for you. we are a couple and have been members for a few seasons and use all the goodies each week, if you dont cook everyday it may be too much for 2 people. the farmers diary tells what is in season, and will give you an idea of what to expect each week. there is a pdf on their site to tell you what actual shares have been in sesons past.
THE SHARE FOR THIS YEAR IS SOLD OUT< but we are moving, and you can get in on the orgainc local goodness! photos of veggies that i personally took.
thank you,
steph.

Sunday’s SPRINGTIME UNAMPLIFIED ACOUSTIC BBQ on Roosevelt Island! Last year’s was so so beautiful! Lots of folks playing acoustic on an island right in the middle of the East River, the city and the river swirl serenely around you – you could throw rocks at the Midtown Skyline. And there’s this ruined castle-like 1850’s city smallpox hospital! -BUT- it’s going to be hot so -PLEASE- bring yr beach umbrellas -&- sunscreen -&- blankets -&- lawn chairs -&- little bbq grills -&- stuff to grill!
–SERIOUSLY– bring food -&- grills -&- charcoal!!! Bring yr acoustic guitars -&- toy percussion -&- toy pianos and (maybe) we’ll all have a big jam at the end! Bring yr Dad too – it’s Father’s Day! If it rains it’ll get rescheduled…

From here on out, we will only be sending out emails to members.
Right now, our Member email list is 85% complete but we are working on getting everyone added.
(sorry guys, but i must float the disclaimer…the core group is all volunteers who organize the CSA in our “free” time for “fun”.
we try our hardest, but we have hundreds of emails to enter so it takes time)

Everyone who has signed up (and gave us their email) should receive a confirmation email by Sunday June 3rd.
This email will explain pickup & assign half shares to A or B week schedules.
(if you do not receive an email by Sun June 3rd, please email williamsburgcsa@gmail.com with your membership #)

Because we are such a big CSA and we have a lot of big goals for our CSA,
we would like to invite anyone who is interested to join the Core Group.
We will be having monthly meetings (the first sunday of every month) rotating between Williamsburg & Greenpoint
Email williamsburgcsa@gmail.com with the subject line Core Group for more info.
.
Our first monthly meeting will be Sunday June 3 at 11:00 in Greenpoint near McGolrick Park.
(RSVP for address. Not to be private or anything, but this email is going out to a big group including non-members so we don’t want to post someones house address. thanks for understanding)

At this meeting, we will be going over the 2007 #s, the low income share program, the “leftover” share food donation, weekly newsletter emails, the blog, monthly events, trips to the farm, and all the special projects like fundraisers and murals and lots of other exciting creative things. There is so much to do and not enough of us to do it…so, if you would like to get more involved in local sustainable food systems, then come and join us!!
(Everyone is welcome; all people and opinions are respected; their is no hierarchy–newbies as well as old timers are encouraged to get involved!)
