SUMMER 2020 SEASON INFO
Share Info & Pricing & Policy Info: See pricing and share info here (note this link just provides info on the season; our sign ups are closed): Flatbush Farm Share Summer-Winter 2020 Sign Up Form
Membership Policy: See the membership agreement.
Payments: Weekly payments and other additional or outstanding payments can be made at the member desk at distribution or online; see our payment info sheet here. Our payment methods info is available here: FFS Payment Methods-2020.
Where to pick up: Pick-up will be at a location between the Cortelyou and Beverly stops on the Q. Please refer to your Membership emails for the address, or write to Membership@flatbushfarmshare.com.
Pick Up Dates & Times: The first part of the 2020 season, or “summer shares,” runs from June 10 to October 28; these pick ups will take place every Wednesday evening. The last four pick-ups, or “winter shares,” will switch to Saturday mornings and run on a bi-weekly schedule. The scheduled Saturday morning dates are November 7, 21 and December 5, 19.
What to Bring: Your own reusable bags – the bags we use for packing aren’t sturdy enough for transport. No need to bring egg cartons as eggs will be pre-packaged this year. If you are a weekly cash payer, please try to have exact change. Electronic payment is preferred, if possible.
Volunteering: Sign up for or check on your summer volunteer shift here.
Composting: Unfortunately our site cannot accommodate composting at this time.
End of night sales: We are suspending these for the foreseeable future.
Communication around pick-up: During distribution it is unlikely that core members will be able to respond to any email messages; if you need someone to pick up for you or swap volunteer shifts, you can use the member2member Google group (see below)
Member 2 Member communication: You should have received an invitation to the “Member2Member2020FFSCSA” Google Group. If you want to be able to ask fellow members for help picking up a share or swapping a volunteer shift, just accept the invitation to the group. The invitation expires after a week. Please use the Google Group only for CSA-related issues like pickups and volunteer shift swaps. If you have not received your invitation or if your invitation has expired please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CSA Newsletter: We send out a weekly newsletter by email, usually on Wednesday afternoons after we learn the exact contents of our shares from our farmers. If you would like to contribute anything to the newsletter – recipes, nutrition information, information about food justice/food sovereignty issues — please write to email@example.com.
Farm at Miller’s Crossing Newsletter: Our veggie farmers, Chris & Katie, send out a weekly newsletter that’s a pleasure to read. You can sign up for it here.
