Announcing:The Briarwood CSA

There is a new community supported agriculture group in town, the Briarwood CSA!

What is a CSA?
CSA stands for community supported agriculture. A CSA group is a group of neighbors who  partner with a farm to bring farm fresh produce---and other items--to members who purchase shares prior to the beginning of the season.
There are over 120 CSA groups in NYC and they are always a treasured part of the community.

Who Joins?
CSAs usually appeal to people who want to eat healthily, want to support farms, and who care about issues such as the environment, food access, and food justice.
Members of a CSA know who their farmer is and where their food comes from--and so there is a mutual trust and learning experience.

Is it about more than food?
Yes. CSAs build community. Members meet neighbors whom they might not otherwise speak to; they work side by side at distribution; and they make decisions together about the group. They share recipes and food tips and there are usually events for members such as trips out to the farm.

        Join us for the 2019 Summer and Fall season.
