IT’S HERE! Winter is coming.

The 2014-15 WINTER SEASON registration is NOW OPEN! Shorter than the summer season, it is 6 pick ups every two weeks starting in November (with a break around the holidays). The cost is $135 for a single and $247 for a full share (which is different than a double…). You’ll receive 6-10 pounds of storage vegetables (sweet potatoes, potatoes, garlic, onions, carrots, celeriac, squashes/pumpkins, etc.), 1-4 fresh flash-frozen items (kale, collards, peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, tomato puree, etc.), and fresh vegetables as weather permits (broccoli, kale, lettuce). There is no fruit or eggs in the winter season. See the form for details and to register. It’s a GREAT value, less intense than the summer season as most of the veggies are storage and frozen items, and a great way to have fresh, organic staples in your home. Last year, I didn’t buy a carrot until April!

DEADLINE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18

We will be doing in-person registrations at Maple Street School (21 Lincoln Road) in October. We will let you know as the date approaches so you can bring your checkbooks! If you are interested in helping with tabling and outreach, please email us directly at board[at]plgcsa.org. As well, if you can post this info in your apartment building or listserv, please share and forward widely! The more people we can reach, the more food we can get to folks!

We haven’t released registration for the 2014 Summer season, but stay tuned, it’s coming soon and we’ll post it here. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, sign up for our mailing list. If you have been a member in the past, you’re already on the list (at least the email you signed up with is, so if your main email is not on the list, then sign up!).

Winter CSA Single Share, February 2, 2013
Winter CSA Single Share, February 2, 2013

The summer season isn’t over yet, but we are already preparing for our winter CSA season! Keep reading for more information.

For those of you who missed the summer season, the Winter CSA season is here. It’s a little different but it is a great value with the same farmer as our summer shares and the same great food! It is shorter than the summer season and items are mainly root or cold-hardy veggies or frozen packs of summer veggies (read below). There are six (6) pick ups, approximately 2 weeks apart. The dates are:
November 9
November 23
December 7
December 21
January 4
January 18

Pick up is on Saturdays from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at Maple Street School on Lincoln Road between Flatbush and Ocean Avenues.

We are offering Single and Full shares. PLEASE NOTE, unlike the summer shares, the full share is not twice the single share. Full shares will receive additional items different from double the single share. This is not an ideal share if you want to split evenly with someone.

The single vegetable share will include 6-10 lbs. of storage vegetables and 1-4 packages of frozen vegetables. A full share is nearly twice that amount. Vegetables will be washed and free of excessive mud and dirt. Depending on the time of the year, fresh veggies you might receive: broccoli, carrots, onions, garlic, celeriac, gourds/squashes, potatoes, and/or yams. Frozen items have included: collards, kale, beans, cauliflower, broccoli, and tomato puree. All vegetables that have been frozen have been grown by The Farm at Miller’s Crossing and are processed by Farm to Table in their freezing facility.

As with the summer CSA, you will need to work one of the six distributions. Last year we had enough people that a shift was only half the distro time, so it is not a big time commitment!

Share costs for the 6 pickups are:
Single: $145
Full: $245
We are only accepting full payments for the winter share. If you are in need of financial assistance, please contact us asap at board@plgcsa.org.

Deadline with FULL payment is Friday, October 11, 2012.

Please share widely with your neighbors, friends and contacts in the neighborhood!
