The 2020 Summer Vegetable Share runs from June 4th to November 12th (for a total of 25 weeks) Farm Spot members come to St. Mark’s Church (33-50 82nd Street) on Thursdays anytime from 5:30-8:15 p.m. to pick up their produce. This year the fruit share runs for 14 weeks, starting in August.

Since Farm Spot is a volunteer-run endeavor, each member* is asked to give a minimum of 4 hours of their time during the year to keep the CSA running. Volunteer responsibilities primarily involve working at weekly distribution, but can also be fulfilled by participating in the low income task force, data entry, special events and vendor recruitment. (Volunteer requirements have been modified to ensure everyone’s safety during the outbreak of Covid-19. Please visit the volunteering page for more information about this, and general volunteering info.)

Membership includes a weekly newsletter from the farm with recipes and information. In past years CSA events have included cooking demonstrations and farm trips, currently all events are discontinued due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

As always we want to try to get the funds to the farm as early in the season as possible to help prepare for the season ahead.
