Many of you may know that Brooklyn Skeptic absolutely worships fresh, locally grown, organic produce delivered right into our neighborhoods by a nearby CSA. In fact, I wrote a fuckload about it last year.
If you, too, want to be overcome with ridiculous emotions about vegetables and dirt and stuff, now is the time to sign up for your neighborhood CSA. You have to sign up before the season starts in order to secure your share, so the farmer knows exactly how many tasty beets and sandy spinaches and twisty garlic scapes to grow. So get on it, bitches!
Just Food, an organization that supports sustainable food systems in NYC, has a handy list of all New York City CSAs, arranged by borough and then by neighborhood.
And good news to Bushwickers! Even though you live in a crap-hole, you can now become part of a CSA too! Make the Road NY started a Bushwick CSA. If you want to join, email csa.bushwick[at]gmail.com.
These are purple potatoes I got in my CSA share last summer. Can you believe that?
