FLATBUSH FARM SHARE is a CSA based in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Our mission is to make local, organic produce available to any Brooklyn resident, regardless of economic status. We offer a sliding scale price structure and the options to pay in installments and/or with food stamps.
We are entirely volunteer-run. We have two seasons of operation: summer (June-October) and winter (November-January). Sign up for summer begins around February or March.
Flatbush is a food desert: a neighborhood without enough grocery stores selling fresh produce, where many people choose fast-food over cooking healthy meals, and where affordability is a major factor in what people eat. CSA is one way we can begin to change this!
A CSA is a community of people who buy produce directly from a local farmer. CSA members receive fresh produce at a great price, while supporting their local food system. CSA stands for Community-Supported Agriculture — a CSA-community is dedicated to preserving sustainable farming, and every dollar members spend goes directly to the farmer, with no middle man!
