The farm truck broke down on the highway today while en route to Queens. The DELIVERY will be LATE! Expected arrival at St. Mark’s is 6:30/6:45. 
Anyone who can chip in to HELP UNLOAD the BOXES from the truck, your help will be much appreciated! (And will speed up the process!). 

 ✶   ✶  Deadline extended to May 29th  ✶   ✶

SIGN UP FOR A 2017 FARM SPOT CSA SHARE! 

Basic info:
Farm Spot is starting its 12th year as a volunteer-run CSA (community supported agriculture) in Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC. We started as a group of neighbors who got together as organizers because we wanted to bring local, organic vegetables to the neighborhood. CSA is essentially buying a farm share from a local farm. Being a member directly supports a family farm and the local economy, and in return provides a wide assortment of very fresh produce on a weekly basis during the growing season. Note: many families find the vegetable share to be quite large and split a share between two households, thus reducing the cost!

— The 2017 season runs JUNE 1 – NOVEMBER 16, 2017

VEGETABLE SHARE: certified organic, from Golden Earthworm Organic Farm, Jamesport, Long Island, 25 weeks, $587.00

SUBSIDIZED VEGETABLE SHARE: same share as above, limited number of shares with a subsidized price. For detailed info: click “What is Farm Spot?” tab at top of page, then “share types” from the drop down menu.

FRUIT SHARE: non-organic, from Brieremere Farms, Riverhead, Long Island, 18 weeks, $123.84 (NOTE: the fruit share will begin later in the season than the vegetable share)

DISTRIBUTION is every week, THURSDAYS, 5:30-8:15pm at ST. MARK’S CHURCH, 82nd St., Jackson Heights
