This is our 6th Season of bringing organic, local, sustainably farmed vegetables and fruit to Jackson Heights and we have some exciting improvements:

• Improved registration: We are using on-line registration software that will greatly streamline the sign-up process.
You will now be able to use a secure site to make a direct payment to Farm Spot, eliminating the need to mail in a check and wait for it to be manually processed. You’ll get a receipt of payment and confirmation that you are enrolled right away.  (Just a note on pricing: The pricing is a little wonky this year because the new software calculated the total price based on a weekly breakdown and that’s why the total share prices are not rounded off.) Click here to register.

• If you would like to make a donation to our subsidized share program. Once your registration is complete, you’ll see an option “Make Payment”.  If you click on this, you can enter any amount that you’d like to donate to the subsidized share program.  Or, you can click here to dontate.

• New Web Site: We have launched a new web site and blog to keep you up-to-date on Farm Spot news and events.
It includes the “Green Queens” tab, a compilation of green resources in Queens and a “Recipes” section under  “Veggie Tips,”where we invite you to submit your own recipes. If you would like to automatically receive updates from us each time we post, go to our web site and enter your e-mail address at the bottom of the page, where it says “subscribe to this blog.”

• New Subsidized Share Guidelines (SOLD OUT). Farm Spot remains committed to making our CSA financially accessible to our neighbors, and we are once again able to offer 15 subsidized shares for the upcoming season. The subsidies are funded by your fellow Farm Spot members. This year we’ve made some changes to the qualifications to increase access for people needing more financial assistance, so please read the guidelines carefully before submitting your registration. SOLD OUT: Please email farmspot@gmail.com to be put on a waiting list. Click here for details.

• Pick Up Time. Pick up will now be from 5:30 to 8:15pm due to changes in our lease with St. Marks Church.

Thank you all for making Farm Spot a great part of Jackson Heights! Please let us know if you have any questions about the application process at farmspot@gmail.com.
