Grand Street CSA Holds Informational Meeting Tomorrow Night
After this weekend’s snow storm, spring might seem like it’s far away, but the Grand Street CSA is already thinking about the warmer months. “CSA” stands for community supported agriculture. Members pay in advance for weekly distributions of fresh produce, eggs, pasta, etc., and in so doing, help a regional farm become more sustainable. Tomorrow night, the Grand Street organization will be holding a meeting for both current members and anyone who’s thinking about joining.
There will be an opportunity to meet a new farmer, Zaid Kurdieh of Norwich Meadows Farm (located in upstate NY and in NJ). The CSA was forced to make a switch after the previous farmers decided it was too time-consuming to make the trip to the city. There’s also a new farm providing fruit shares this year, Red Jacket Orchards of Geneva, New York. Vegetable shares cost $320; fruit shares are $240 (both for 22 weeks beginning in June).
Tomorrow night’s meeting takes place at 8:45 p.m. in the Seward Park Community Room, 264 East Broadway. Click here for more information. Anyone is welcome to attend.
