Our first pick-up of the fifth Sunnyside CSA season is THIS THURSDAY from 5-8pm at Sunnyside Community Services on 39th Street (next to the NYSC.)
Fruit shares will begin the following week.
In case you’re rusty about the details for Thursday’s pick-up, here are a couple of reminders:
1) Pick up is between 5:00 and 8:00 pm at SCS (43-31 39th Street, b/t 43rd Ave and Queens Blvd).
2) Bring a couple of bags to take your produce home in. You may take home the waxy box the share comes in, but you will need to bring it back to us the next week.
3) Bring your calendars so you can sign up for your volunteer hours. Mary Beth, our volunteer coordinator will be there to answer all your questions.
Thanks for being so great about volunteering. As you know, this is vital to the livelihood of the CSA!
4) EVERYone, whether they have a veggie share or not, can buy some delicious and healthy eggs, beef, chicken, pork, bread, beans, cheese, etc. via our partnership with Lewis Waite Farm. Order by Sunday, June 12th, at midnight to get food for our next LWF delivery on Thursday, June 16th- details here.
For those who have a share and need to find a partner (or have no share and would like to share one) you can try posting a message on Facebook or a comment on our website.
Also, the Woodside CSA may still have openings.
Please visit our website often for the weekly share forecasts, recipes, veggie storage info and cooking tips. The site is a constant work in progress, so be sure to check in so you can stay up to date with news from us and our partner farms and vendors.
We will continue to publish the share forecast digitally and will post via Twitter, Facebook and this site as soon as we get updates from the farm.
